Perhaps no other songwriter has committed his life’s story to song as fully as Nashville veteran Verlon Thompson. "Sweet Dreams Do Come True" is a music performance film and a biographical documentary, but ultimately a memoir that celebrates a life well-lived. Along the way we meet his family, friends, and musical peers including Guy Clark, Sam Bush, Shawn Camp, Wayland Holyfield, Billy Dean, Suzy Bogguss, Doug Crider, and Jon Randall. Finally, we are introduced to the love of his life - Mike & Betty's daughter. All proceeds benefit the Rome International Film Festival.
