Trivia

There was a scene where Harley was supposed to punch Wyatt in the face. The first time the actors attempted it with the cameras rolling, Strait fell to the ground after she threw her punch and the director called "Cut". Strait laughed and said, "I felt the wind on my nose on that one and I will never make you angry." See more »

If you like George Strait, You'll love this film.
19 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"A Walk in the Clouds" with Keanu Reeves was my all time favorite movie until I saw "Pure Country" a few months ago. Any one who likes to listen to George Strait music will love this movie. He does so few publicity interviews and even fewer music videos, so this is a great way to get to see George Strait talk, move and interact apart from his on stage singing act.

The plot is simple, a star crossed lovers romance with lots of professional concert singing thrown in. George Strait's riding and roping skills are up on the screen to see, too. The cowboy in him is displayed as he does his own stunt work in those scenes.

I wonder if the dog in the movie is his own dog, Buster, that is in some of the commercials he's done.
