Applebutter Express song will be in Witherspoon film

   The Applebutter Express -- the Tampa-based bluegrass-flavored band has strong Bradenton ties -- are hitting the big screen.
   Or at least their music is. The band announced today that they had signed a contract to have their song "Hey My Brotha" used in an upcoming movie called "The Good Lie."
The Applebutter Express
   The film, which is set for release in 2014, stars Reese Witherspoon in a story about a Sudanese refugee who's taken into the home of a straight-talking American woman.
   It's hard to figure how a good-timey bluegrass band's music fits into that story, but we'll find out next year.
    Applebutter Express plays in Bradenton  and one of their members went to Southeast High School.
   If you can't wait until next year to hear "Hey My Brotha," you can go see the Applebutter Express play on the Riverwalk Friday evening and request it. They start at 6:30 p.m. and it's free.
