Storyline

"Like a Country Song" is a story about JAKE REESON, an up and coming country singer who has the whole world in his hands until his ego gets in the way. With nothing but partying and music on his mind, Jake is forced to take a hard look at himself and the ashes around him after life slowly falls apart. Jake's old flame, BECCA, suddenly reappears in his life after seeing her AGAIN at a local music show. Good girl Becca, never forgetting who Jake is, makes him work for it only to fall for him again. His mother, MIA, harbors a painful secret... the father Jake thought was dead is alive. To protect Jake from the pain of knowing what his father, BO, had become after a horrible accident, Mia thought it best if Jake believed Bo was dead. Jake then eventually has a "random" encounter with Bo on the street in a Nashville suburb that sets off a chain of events to bring Bo back into his life and hopefully reconciliation to the family.

Forgiveness is the Key to Action and Freedom
21 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After watching the movie Like a Country Song, I still can't get my mind off, of the feel-good country music that works like a perfect plot device in the story. What's perfect is that I live in a place where music is everything in Nashville. There is always something happening in this town. Music is a very powerful device that can trigger either good or bad emotions in a person. In the movie it serves as an echoing reminder of the conflict in the story. Towards the end of the film there is a scene with Bo Reeson, the father of Jake Reeson the young up and coming future country star. In the scene Bo Reeson reprises his own role as a country singer and sings about his life and the past. This one song sums up the whole reason why he left his son Jake Reeson, why he drank, and above all how his whole life turned upside down because of one event.
