Video Premiere: Mariah Carey's 'Right to Dream' Ost of 'Tennessee'


Mariah Carey as Krystal embarks on a journey with two strangers she picks up along the way to pursue her dream, in 'Tennessee'.

While "Tennessee" is open for a one-week limited screening in Los Angeles, the music video for its soundtrack "Right to Dream" which is sung by one of its cast, Mariah Carey, has been put forward. "Right to Dream" is the original song that Carey wrote with country crooner Willie Nelson, specially for the indie movie. Willie contributes the guitar playing in the recorded version of the single.

Apart from showing Mariah in a studio to record the song, the music video also brings up some scenes from the movie. "Tennessee" is centering on Mariah's character named Krystal who leaves her marriage behind, picking up two brothers on her way to Tennessee to pursue her dream as a singer. In the movie, Krystal scores an open-mic night to sing her song "I've Got the Right to Dream".

"It was a different experience from an album project. I was very close to the story and in particular my character's struggle, so it made it easier for me as a writer. I just began channeling Krystal's pain and hope," Mariah said on the songwriting process, adding "The song is basically a three-act play and chronicles the evolution of Krystal." "Right to Dream" is being pushed for an Academy consideration for "Best Song" category.

"Tennessee" is scheduled to open in limited theaters in 2009, although no specific date has been set yet. Also starring in the drama flick are Adam Rothenberg and Ethan Peck as brothers Carter and Ellis respectively.
