Dusty Chandler (Strait) is a super star in the country music world, but his shows have the style of a '70s rock concert. One day he takes a walk - out of his overdone concerts to find his real country roots. He's helped and hindered by friends and staff, but pushes on in his search for a real music style as well as a real romance. Written by Don Femia <donfemia@csn.net>

Did You Know?


The scenes where Dusty goes to the barber shop for his haircut and shave, and the cafe he eats at across the street afterwards, were filmed in the small town of Maypearl, Texas. The barber shop was in fact (and still is to this present day), an insurance office, that the filmmakers designed the exterior to look like an actual barber shop with the words on the window, and a barber pole on the left hand side. The cafe is now where the Maypearl Health and Fitness Center is, and at the time the movie was filmed, it was designed with interior to look exactly like a cafe. The interior sets were destroyed after filming wrapped. See more »


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 »


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...

Pure Country is Pure entertainment
9 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movies ending is clearly one of the best of any current movie whether drama or musical. Yes I am a man, one who likes action movies and thrillers, but if you don't get goose bumps during the last scene of this one your just not human. Strait turns in an impressive performance and Isabel Glasser is fantastic// Has she done anything as good since? I truly believe, even if you don't like country music you'll enjoy this one cause it's truly a feel-good love story. It was also good to see old Rory Calhoun, a lot older and a lot thinner turn in a good performance. I also own the soundtrack, and these songs are first rate if you are a Strait fan. Some of these classics still get play time on the radio.
