Trivia

George Strait tried to get the studio to change the name of this movie. He didn't think that "Pure Country" actually fit the film, as he believed that it was more than just a "country" film. However, his wishes fell on deaf ears and the title stayed. See more »

Pure Country...yep that's what it is!
25 July 2002 | by (San Antonio Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a good vehicle for George Strait, although it IS a little hokey at times. Some of the dialogue seems to be a bit too predictable, some of the plot lines too hackneyed, but hey, it's only a movie! It's not an Academy Award nominee! This is a good film about a country music star who has had it with all the "stuff" of performing, and has had it with 'performing' itself. He simply wants to sing and play his guitar, he wants to get back to the basics of what pleased him about music in the first place. I wouldn't expect too many people outside of fans of country music to like this movie, or even understand it, but I like it. I understand it. And I accept it as 'Pure Entertainment'...and with a soundtrack like this one has, it can't go wrong. One might want to find a copy of "The Nashville Rebel" (sp) starring a very young and barefaced Waylon Jennings for comparison.
