8 November 2002 | by (mississippi) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. I was reading some of the other reviews that people had written and they were saying the acting was bad. This is not true the acting was great the actors were great and the film was great. George Strait is my favorite Country Music star and Isabel Glasser is my favorite actress. This movie has no Nudity, barely any bad language and no sexuality. This is a movie for the whole family to enjoy. Summary- George Strait Plays Dusty, a famous country music star who is tired of the smoke , the strobe lights and the over miked sound of his arena spectaculars. One Night, something snaps. He walks out ditching his ponytail, beard , and temporarily his career, to reclaim his down home country roots. He falls in love with Harley Tucker(Isabel Glasser). The simple life may be complexed but it is nothing a revitalized countryboy cant handle! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
