Did You Know?


"The Man in Love With You" was originally written as a romantic ballad, but as soon as George Strait heard "I Cross My Heart" (written and composed by Steve Dorff, as were several of the film's songs, including "Heartland"), he had to use it. 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 »


Grandma Ivy Chandler: Well, sometimes the tree grows too fast and the roots don't develop. And sometimes you have to chop off the top of that tree to let the roots catch up.
Earl Blackstock: But do you know where he's at?
Grandma Ivy Chandler: No, but I expect if you follow the roots, you'll find him.
Earl Blackstock: Grandma Ivy, in all the years I've known you I've never heard you answer a question directly.
Grandma Ivy Chandler: There are no answers. Only the search.
Earl Blackstock: Yup, whatever that means.

Love story between a man and his music which finds him true love of a woman.
28 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie made me fall in love with George Strait and country music!! I had never listened to country music before because I thought it was a joke. Then I found that country music had changed to be more like pop music or a soft rock instead of that twangy music it used to be. Their are a lot of gorgeous guys now that make you pay attention to the music too! It is pure magic between George and Isabel even when she doesn't really know who he is. Once she finds out the truth she still loves him and he didn't even have to kiss her! I think that Molly McClure helps to make the movie. She is so funny. As usual Lesley Ann Warren is a pure delight. She is one of the most beautiful women at any age.
