Nashville, TN (April 5, 2022)
Red Street Records‘ artist Cade Thompson received the opportunity to perform his song, “Anything Yet,” at the movie premiere of The Mulligan. Held in Augusta, Georgia—the site of the Masters Golf Tournament which is currently in full swing through this weekend – “Anything Yet” is a big part of the movie, playing during the film’s ending and closing credits. The Mulligan will air in more than 800 theaters across the U.S. for two nights only—Monday, April 18 and Tuesday, April 19—via Fathom Events.
Based on the popular book by Ken Blanchard and Wally Armstrong, the film’s title comes from a popular golfing term meaning a do-over or receiving a second shot. The message of The Mulligan reminds us that second chances are only one shot away.
From producer Rick Eldridge (Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius, The Ultimate Gift, The Running of the Sahara), The Mulligan has an all-star cast including Eric Close (TV’s Nashville), entertainer Pat Boone, PGA champion Tom Lehman, and broadcasting legend Jim Nantz, who attended the movie’s premiere just hours after calling the national broadcast of the NCAA Men’s National Championship basketball game.

“It was such a great surprise to have someone want to use my song on a movie,” Cade Thompson shares. “The premiere was great to be part of and to perform at while getting to meet legends in the entertainment world as well as new upcoming talent. When Pat Boone looked at my shoes said, ‘You know, I started all that with the white bucks shoes back in the day. Maybe you will start a new trend with your two tones!’” Boone had his own illustrious career that spans the decades, including his hit song “Love Letters” from 1957, which hit No. 1 on the pop charts.
“Anything Yet,” which appears on Cade Thompson’s 2021 album Bigger Story, was written by Thompson, Micah Kuiper, and Krissy Nordhoff and produced by Kuiper and Bryan Fowler. The song found its way to Eldridge last fall. “I’m friends with Cade’s manager and got a copy of his album,” Eldridge explains. “I listened to his music and loved it. When I heard ‘Anything Yet,’ I was in the movie’s post-production. I got everyone to agree that the song fits the moment of the movie’s conclusion. It works perfectly.”
