Brett Young’s new song “Long Way Home (From The Motion Picture ‘Father Stu’),” is featured in the upcoming Sony Pictures film “Father Stu,” which hits theaters on Wednesday, April 13. The film stars Mark Wahlberg. Young and the actor attended a special premiere together.
Brett said in a press release, “I met Mark at a golf tournament a few months ago. We connected pretty quickly, and he told me about an incredible project he was working on and asked if I’d be up for writing a song to capture the spirit of the movie. Within a few hours, I was flying home with Shay (Mooney), Bear (Rhinehart), and throwing ideas around, and after watching an early screening the next day, we put together something that we thought would be a perfect fit.”
Based on a true story, “Father Stu” is an unflinchingly honest, funny, and ultimately uplifting drama about a lost soul who finds his purpose in a most unexpected place.
