All My Trials, Lord

In a drunken stupor a handsome young singer kills a taxi driver while visiting Spalding County, Georgia. While awaiting trial, he plays his guitar and sings hymns so beautifully that the townspeople gather in the evenings outside his cell to listen, inspiring a local minister to hold revivals outside the window. (Set in 1950s and inspired by a true event)
