ZZ Top is nominated for their documentary That Little Ol’ Band From Texas. The career overview competes in the Best Music Film category alongside projects on the Beastie Boys, Beyonce, Freestyle Love Supreme, and Linda Ronstadt.

Produced by Banger Films, the documentary tells the story of how three teenage bluesmen — Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard — became one of the biggest bands on the planet and continue to gain fans for 50 years.

That Little Ol’ Band From Texas presents interviews with the band members alongside conversations with such high-profile fans as Billy Bob Thornton and Queens Of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, as well as never-before-seen archival footage. Take a look at the TRAILER.
