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>

In the scene after Buddy lip-syncs on stage and the the band argues with Lula (Lesley Ann Warren), the three band members who prominently have lines ("If we speed up or slow down, he can't keep up!" "Buddy Jackson?" "Are you out of your mind?") have been with Strait since the beginning of his career. See more »

Pure Country is Pure entertainment
9 December 2005 | by gamecocksSee all my reviews

This movies ending is clearly one of the best of any current movie whether drama or musical. Yes I am a man, one who likes action movies and thrillers, but if you don't get goose bumps during the last scene of this one your just not human. Strait turns in an impressive performance and Isabel Glasser is fantastic// Has she done anything as good since? I truly believe, even if you don't like country music you'll enjoy this one cause it's truly a feel-good love story. It was also good to see old Rory Calhoun, a lot older and a lot thinner turn in a good performance. I also own the soundtrack, and these songs are first rate if you are a Strait fan. Some of these classics still get play time on the radio.
