Did You Know?


The film came about because of Elvis Presley's manager, "Colonel" Tom Parker. When George Strait would perform at Vegas every year, Parker would go backstage and tell Strait that he should make movies. Strait didn't take Parker's advice until Parker contacted a friend, producer Jerry Weintraub, who also saw Strait's potential as an actor. Weintraub called up Rex McGee (the film's writer) and said he was making a movie with Strait and that McGee had to make sure of two things: Strait had to sing 10 songs and he had to rope something.

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.
