A sequel to Pure Country (1992) had been planned with George Strait Lesley Ann Warren and Isabel Glaser reprising their roles from the first movie. It was to be released about two or three years after the original, but because the first film fared so poorly with audiences, the plans for a sequel that continued the original's story were eventually scrapped, so director Christopher Cain decided to do an in-name sequel instead.

During the flashback in the beginning of the movie, it shows Bobbie when she was a young girl in the 1990s. In some scenes, there are post 2000 cars like a 2005- Nissan Frontier and a 2000-2007 Dodge Caravan in parking lots and also driving down the highway. See more »
Generally when you label a movie as a sequel (hence the "2" in the title) you set up the expectation that it will be a continuation or, at the very least, contain some of the characters from the original film. Since this movie bore no relation to the movie "Pure Country, I am at a loss to understand the title.
Yes, George Strait was in both movies. However, in the first he played a fictional country singer while in this sequel he played himself in a much smaller role. That is the only tie in. That being said, this movie could have easily had a different title and used a different well-known country singer without changing the plot.
Speaking of plot, this one was saccharine, corny and predictable. My husband sat through it with me and kept saying, "okay, now this will happen next." It was sad to see so much talent -- Michael McKean, Cheech Marin, Bronson Pinchot, even Dean Cain -- put to waste.
Katrina Elam has a great voice and I enjoyed some of the songs. However, unless you want your teeth to fall out from all the sugar or you're looking for something to put you to sleep at 3 am, avoid this movie.
