Dusty gets tired of all the smoke and light effects, wonders what happened to doing it the way that made him famous and happy. Takes a walk to find what seems to be missing and finds himself and his music again!
Lesley Ann Warren,
Ivory centers on a young man's struggle between success versus fulfillment, and chronicles the exploration of an artist: the passion, dedication, and the immovable faith in one's talents. ... See full summary »

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 »
My 367th Review: Beyond schmaltzy - even Country fans are going to see through this hokum
The original Pure Country is a fun sentimental romantic movie with some great honky tonk and ballads - not so this new version. It has a low budget Heaven Can Wait meets new country vibe that is pretty darn awful.
The plot is the first fault with angels and a gift of voice that is beyond corny in its representation, the second fault is the corn does grow as high as an elephant's eye - we just get all the country clichés and though the original has some heart, this has only saccharine - and almost comes across as,(take a deep breath), fake. Nearly anyways.
All in all, I was kind of looking forward to this; the original is actually pretty moving and with its "A Star is Born" plot moves along nicely - this sequel is just a mess.
I'm loathed to say it, but maybe you should give yourself the real gift this one time and give this a miss....
