    Amazing! Everyone was wonderful and really added to the feeling of being back in the day! I was astounded by everyone’s performance and could not believe how well the mini-series was made where you could actually get a sense of how it was during those times. What a fantastic job!!!!!! I watched it continuously and could not seem to get enough of the Hatfield’s & McCoys. I really hope it airs again and can’t wait to buy the dvd. Thanks for bringing this historical moment alive and hope to see more amazing mini-series such as this in the future! Thanks Kevin Costner and Modern West for the fantastic music!

    In my house, we hated for it to end. It was superb and the CD is outstanding as well. I can’t listen to it enough! Congratulations to all!

    This was amazing! I haven’t seen a TV mini-series of this caliber since “North and South” from the 80s. Kudos to the entire cast on a mesmerizing performance. The music was absolutely perfect in setting the tone for the entire series. Bravo!

    Congratulations, the mini-series was well written, directed and acted by everyone. It is a very real story, but a very sad story. So many lost their lives in those two families, and for so many little reasons. Its a series that makes you realize what life was like back in those days,family was everything. Today, family is not always first, maybe we should take something from this series and make sure our family is top priority, but without the gun fighting.
    Thank you for reminding us about our ancestors, and about how hard they worked to survive so that we could have a better life.
    Hope this will be just the beginning of more series.
    Keep them coming.

    Dear Mr. Costner,

    I just wanted to say “Thank you” for doing this incredible and historical film.

    It helped me to understand a lot of things that I could not pin point from the past 29 years, living in the hills of Tennessee and Kentucky.

    From that statement, I mean the the way of life in the hills. Although this story took place so long ago, I can attest that the majority of ideals has not changed in today’s times, as I am one you could call a “survivor” of those ways.

    I was born and raised a Cajun lady in the deep south of Louisiana, but married into a family that I have classified too many times, as being a version of the “Hatfield’s and McCoy’s” and their stories and events from the “Bloody Eighth” in Putnam County, Tennessee, has not changed much since the times of the “Hatfields and McCoys.”

    I even spent two years writing a 500+ page novel of my story, but to protect myself, I had to write it as fiction, but my film footage and photography of historical events are all very real.

    I was in the “Super Tuesday Tornado” in 2008, filming the natural gas pipeline pumping station on fire after the F3 exploded it moments before and while I was filming, I also got on film, 300 feet in front of me, the 2nd funnel that dropped on Westmoreland, Tennessee.

    I have a short clip of that storm up on my website, should you be curious to see it.

    I also filmed the flash flood that swallowed Nashville, TN in 2010, as it was flooding the hills, as well I have a full on “Meteor Storm”, I captured on film, a storm that was dropping tens of thousands of meteors on my head. I have a picture of some of the meteors I found at the steps of my porch, on my website also.

    Not to mention, I am the survivor of an even greater darkness that I endured for 22 of the 29 years that I have been married into this family.

    Needless to say, I just wanted to say thank you for doing the film of “Hatfield’s & McCoy’s” because it sure helped me to understand the way of thinking that the folks I have spent all these years with, the kind of thinking they were raised in and I can attest that it is still happening to this day.

    The circumstances may have changed, but the over all thoughts and ways of life…. has not.

    Thank you, Mr. Costner and please thank everyone else for me as well.

    Most sincerely,
    Debbie Light Nash
