Episode #8: "Blaze Foley" (season finale)

Debut: FRIDAY, NOV. 10 (10:00-10:30 p.m.)

A legend in country music circles, yet largely unknown to the general public, Blaze Foley burned bright on the Austin, Texas music scene before being silenced well before his time. He was an intimidating physical presence with a wry sense of humor and the voice of an angel, who battled his demons by writing songs about them. Blaze hated hypocrisy as much as he loved booze and duct tape. He became best friends and brothers in self-destruction with fellow singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, and died tragically while trying to defend a friend from harm, but not before writing his greatest song, "If I Could Only Fly."

Written by Mike Judge and Mark Monroe; directed by Mike Judge.
