Hello James! Hi, Mrs. Kelly! Would you mind signing this for me, please?
Thank you so much! If you have any advice for a young artist such as myself, I'd love to hear it.
K: Oh, I have some advice.

And James is being so helpful! I won't sell it on e-Bay or anything, I've just been a fan of yours since I was a little girl.
Thank you. Thank you so much.
This is amazing, James! It's so beautiful, I don't even wanna pee in ...

I actually really loved it and I too am glad I watched it despite many people not liking it enough. I liked Gwyneth and Garrett but Leighton was just amazing with her singing and her portrayal of the layered Chiles Stanton. Loved it! I am looking forward to seeing more movies of Leighton which are coming out this year and I am hoping they will be as strong. I am actually rather surprised as to why people didn't like it-...I guess they were comparing to movies made before on country music with similar story lines but I didn't mind at all! I loved the banter between Chiles and Beau - was absolutely the best part about the movie!
