One of the greatest songwriters of all time gets some long overdue love.

Townes Van Zandt. It's not a name the average person will necessarily know. But major musicians have been singing his praises -- and his lyrics -- for decades; from Bob Dylan to Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris to Norah Jones.

'Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt' follows the songwriter's life as he struggles with addiction yet thrives as an artist.

Directed by Margaret Brown, it's a haunting film featuring celebrity accounts of a brilliant songwriter whose life lived in the shadows was cut far too short. Watch the film in full, or snag it onto your own site, from
