Wolf developed all of the original songs in the film with Brett Boyett and Jackson Odell two years before shooting commenced. She worked with them on spec without telling anyone else what she was doing, then as a surprise, she brought all of the songs with a live band into a development meeting with the production company, and the band played all of the songs for the film in their conference room with Wolf setting up each song and where it would go in the film. All went well. The film, which had already been greenlit at the time but did not have a start date for production, then had a start date after that meeting. Brett Boyett was hired as Wolf's music producer, and all of those same songs are in the film. Wolf said that she did it that way because it is very hard to pitch an audible visual and that she knew how important the country music would be for this particular film. She felt that the music was equally as important as the film, and that she wanted to develop both as she went through preproduction, production, and post. She felt it was something that the production company needed to see/hear rather than Wolf trying to explain in mere words how vital she felt that it was; she wanted to show them and not just tell them. She didn't tell anyone because she new that it was an unconventional, bold thing that she was planning to do, but that she felt in her soul that it was going to all land the right way and be an empowering, transformative experience.

Leading up to the fancy date night in New Orleans, Josie's hair was straight. During the date her hair had some styling curls in it. Immediately after the date was concluded, her hair was straight once more. See more »

Huge fan of the book and found this movie to be a great adaptation. The cast did a great job and the storyline was done on par with the book. This was one of the first indie romance books I ever read on my tablet and it brings me so much happiness to see this gem get the credit it deserves. Ten glittery stars! Must watch romance, perfect for fans of Nicholas Sparks!
