Kevin Renick's Song "Up in the Air" Makes It into Up in the Air

Posted By on Fri, Oct 9, 2009 at 12:02 PM

A few weeks ago, we reported that Kevin Renick's song "Up in the Air" was set for inclusion in the George Clooney movie Up In the Air. My colleague in LA, Randy Roberts, saw a screening of the movie, and confirmed its inclusion. Says the Daily RFT:

And then there's the closing song, "Up In the Air," which runs during the credits and was written by former Riverfront Times proofreader Kevin Renick (!). It's a soft acoustic song composed by the St. Louis-based writer and musician. As the credits rolled and I saw his name, I wondered: Is that the same persnickety guy who saved my ass at least once a week? Indeed, it is. Renick wrote it, Reitman told me after the screening, after getting laid off from a job.

Congrats!
