Trivia

During the course of filming the crew members felt uncomfortable with George Strait doing his own stunts during the roping scene. Strait finally convinced them to let him do his own roping for that scene, as he is a real team roper and hosts his own team roping event every year in which he and his son compete. See more »

Goofs

In the first scene of the movie the tour bus is shown leaving one city and arriving at another. The city in both shots is Ft. Worth, Texas. See more »

Quotes

Ernest Tucker: Yeah, I can't blame you for keepin' quiet. Hard to get a word in edgewise with those three.
Dusty Wyatt Chandler: Yes, sir.
Ernest Tucker: People talk too damn much for my taste. Yappin' about this or that, when he ought to be eatin', workin', or sleepin'. We know Harley was out late last night. We know she was a little slow on her ride, I mean, that's no front page news! So why talk about it?
Dusty Wyatt Chandler: I guess I see what you're saying.
Ernest Tucker: You GUESS? NEVER guess. I mean, you gotta KNOW what you're doing! Otherwise, you leave yourself wide open...

Wears real well
23 November 2000 | by (Bellingham) – See all my reviews

Somehow I happened to see this movie in a real theatre. I'd never heard of George Strait and I am not a country music fan. But this movie works. I first bought it in VHS and then on DVD (go for DVD, the sound is great).

This is a simple story of a famous country singer who goes underground because while he has everything, he really has nothing. He gets drunk and ends up on the shrinking ranch of a beautiful cowgirl. He stays anonymous and gets back in touch with the world. Meanwhile the s**t hits the fan with his touring show. The plot has to do some twisting to work all this out but the basic appeal of the film, a good man getting back in touch with what's real, has universal appeal.

You may find yourself wanting to watch this movie about once a year. I know I do. Highly recommended.
