Storyline

Dottie West fought a difficult childhood to rise as one of country music's icons winning the first ever Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 1965. She pushed the boundaries of country music and befriended some of their greatest musical artistes. Poor management besieged her with financial problems and she was on her way to fighting them through when she was tragically killed. Written by mahajanssen

Just received this video today in the mail after ordering it from timelife. It was an awesome excellent movie I read one review on here that said it was a waste of talent. Well they didn't make the movie you mr. whoever you are that didn't like the movie. It was very very good. Didn't even know the movie was for sale until I found this website and the found the movie.
