Storyline

High-school music teacher Beth Landon puts herself on the line when she invites world-famous country singer Jason Keith to perform at her rural town's Strawberry Festival. A one-hit wonder with a horrible rep for canceling shows and copping an attitude, Jason isn't what Beth's mother Eileen considers a reliable musical act for the beloved festival, which she is proudly hosting with her good friend Ruth. Reigning Strawberry Queen Beth attempts to stick up for her favorite singer, but when she finally meets Jason face-to-face, this becomes difficult. But behind Jason's rock-star image is the secret he's keeping about his past that could turn his tanking career around. Beth helps his manager Ray convince him that the festival gig is a great way to revitalize his career and win back his audience. As Jason spends more time with Beth, his attitude fades as they encourage each other to realize their deepest dreams as talented musicians. Written by Hallmark Channel

Charming, easy to watch and easy to love
10 March 2017 | by skpn123See all my reviews

How can you not adore this film! It has more holes than a block of swiss cheese but the cast is superb: Shelley Long, Cindy Williams, Meagan Fay and more represent the veterans of the craft with finesse. Trevor Donovan and Julie Mond are so delightful, young, and full of promise and talent just like the characters they play. The original song 'Catching Horses' sure is catchy and I love that it strikes to the heart of panic attacks and anxiety disorders, exhorting us to believe in ourselves and not the fear inside. This is an easy and fun watch. The message is an important one.
