It happens all the time, two young people working on separate dreams find themselves thrown together by a matter of circumstance and an amazing friendship is born. Sometimes that friendship leads to bigger and better things. Such was the case of Pam Tillis and Callie Khouri.

The two young women met while in their early 20’s working in Nashville. Their unique and sometimes wild adventures combined and were a catalyst for the characters in the movie Thelma and Louise.

In a story published by Vanity Fair, Khouri talks about her friendship with Pam Tillis and their adventures were the basis for Thelma and Louise,

“We were very different, but, together, we were like a third thing,” often “racing the sun home” after a wild night out.” “Pam was one of the funniest people in the world, and scattered—she’d borrow a pair of shoes and return just one.”

It was on this date in 1991 that Thelma and Louise featuring music and inspiration from Pam Tillis as well as music from Tammy Wynette and Alan Jackson hit the theaters.
