When "Blaze" co-stars and friends Ethan Hawke and Ben Dickey took a seat at Rach's kitchen table, the three of them bonded over their love of music AND food. (Naturally!)
"Music has that power to go into people's hearts and let them know what they have in common," Ethan says.
"Especially this man's music," Rach says referring to singer + songwriter Blaze Foley, whose life Ethan and Ben's new movie is based on. "It changes you. It really does."
And when Ethan told Rach that he actually produced musician Ben's newest single, she couldn't help but extend an invitation for them to join her and play at her annual SXSW event, Feedback, next year.
(They of course said they'd LOVE to!)
Not only that, but she also gave them each a wallet-sized list of her favorite restaurants in Austin so when they *do* join her in Texas for the event, they'll hit the best places. How sweet is that?
(While she didn't *disapprove* of the list the two pals recently revealed of their own must-visit spots, she says, she just had a *few* to add. 😉 )
And don't worry, we have her list for all of you, too!
