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

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. See more
