DVD Extras include the Barbecue and Sausage Cook-Off, Songwriter Serenade, Expanded Version of the History of Texas-style, Rehairing a Bow and an Interview with the Director and Producer.

Disc Two, the Bonus Disc, contains over 40 of the best complete performances from the film. Disc number three, The Lost Benny Thomasson tapes,is a full-length 1976 interview and jam session with the legendary fiddler, Benny Thomasson. This is the first time the footage has been available.

DVDs will be for sale inside the KC Hall throughout the contest.
