That month he drew 12, to the Ravina Folk Festival outside Chicago. Good news for his wife Ingrid, struggling at home with the bills and a toddler while Jim was on the road.
I Got a Name
Her old man was about to hit pay dirt. At least not while he was alive. On September 20, , a chartered small plane attempted to take off in thick fog from Natchitoches in Louisiana, bound for Sherman, Texas. On reaching the end of the runway, the pilot suffered a heart attack and lost control of the aircraft, which skidded into a tree and exploded. Everyone on board perished, including Croce and his right-hand man, guitarist Maury Muehleisen. That night, and only an hour before the crash, Croce had played a gig at the local Northwestern State University in front of a sparse crowd.
I Got a Name (song)
For the encore he introduced a new song called I Got A Name , which had just gone to airplay. In June, a rather hesitant Croce cut the track in two takes. Fox thought that Croce's voice was a perfect fit for both the song and the film.
Croce agreed to sing the song after hearing Fox play it over the telephone. The version of the song that appears in the film was recorded exclusively for the film. The version on the album is a totally different recording.
In a version of the song was used in a commercial for Western Air Lines. In August a Remax commercial featured Jim Croce singing the song. In the song appeared on the soundtrack of the Quentin Tarantino film Django Unchained. The song plays during a scene in the film Logan during which the character of Laura wanders into a gas station.
The song is thematically tied to many of the movie's elements and was also used in a trailer for the film. The song was in the Lego Ninjago Movie in as well.
