Storyline

Dusty Chandler (Strait) is a super star in the country music world, but his shows have the style of a '70s rock concert. One day he takes a walk - out of his overdone concerts to find his real country roots. He's helped and hindered by friends and staff, but pushes on in his search for a real music style as well as a real romance. Written by Don Femia <donfemia@csn.net>

Trivia

The film came about because of Elvis Presley's manager, "Colonel" Tom Parker. When George Strait would perform in Las Vegas every year, Parker would go backstage and tell him that he should make movies. Strait didn't take Parker's advice until Parker contacted a friend, producer Jerry Weintraub, who also saw Strait's potential as an actor. Weintraub called up Rex McGee (the film's writer) and said he was making a movie with Strait and that McGee had to make sure of two things: Strait had to sing ten songs and he had to rope something.

Wonderful Movie
5 November 2002 | by kjchristian11See all my reviews

I Love George Strait and this has become my favorite movie. I have always been a country music lover that is why I chose this movie. If you don't like country music still watch it . If you are looking for a good love story this is it.
