About me:.... .. ..
In a walk across Texas, the greatest distance is between two brothers.
EL PASO 857
Casey makes the ladies love him and never backs down from a fight. Whereas Casey shoots from the hip, Dustin is nothing but a straight-shooter.
The brothers take on every bull ride, barbecue, and barfight along the way. Shot along the highways and back roads of Texas, Coyote Funeral makes Texas as much a character as a setting. Whether or not Casey and Dustin make it to El Paso will depend less on braving the elements than surviving each other.
This Stretch of Highway
An original song from Coyote Funeral, sung by Casey Cannon.
