Henry County, TN Lifestyle Magazine Conducts 
Extensive Interview

NASHVILLE, TN -, the preeminent lifestyle magazine website serving Paris, Tennessee and surrounding areas, recently interviewed Mike Weatherford, one of the featured characters in "DERBY MADNESS! ® The Movie".

Susan Jones, Editor and Publisher of Paris! Magazine conducted the interview for the EarBook portion of the website.  She says, "It is fascinating what Mike and his team are doing with Derby Madness®.  I was surprised to learn about the impact they are having in the community.  It's an interesting story and I'm glad to be able to share it."


During the twenty-three minute audio interview, Ms. Jones asked Mike to explain the experience for the crowd at a Derby Madness® demolition derby event.  Mike said, "It's something that everybody wishes they could do!  How many times have you been in traffic and you wanted to take your car and just smash the other car because they cut in front of you?  That's what we do!  When you come to a demolition derby your gonna see fire, your gonna see smoke, your gonna see car crashing, your gonna hear loud noises and it's gonna be exciting!"

The duo also talked about the upcoming premiere of "DERBY MADNESS! ® The Movie" at 7PM on March 7 at the Krider Performing Arts Center in Paris, TN.  Produced by DuMedia Lightouse and directed by John Dudley and William Middleton, the documentary movie profiles Mike Weatherford and his group of officials as they travel to various small towns in Western Tennessee and Kentucky for the Derby Madness® demolition derby competitions.  Responding to a question about the recent wave of publicity he is enjoying surrounding the movie, Mike said, "We're gonna ride it until it crashes! I'm humbled about it, it's been exciting and I've enjoyed it!"
