KMOV - A local musician got a huge surprise when his song was picked to be in the film "Up in the Air."
When times were tough for St. Louis singer-songwriter Kevin Renick, he wrote a melancholy song that reflected his predicament. Renick titles the song "Up in the Air." Last February, when he heard that Hollywood director Jason Reitman was in town shooting a new movie with the same name he laid down a track of his song on a 30-year-old cassette deck.
CBS' Jim Axelrod has the story.
