Clinging to the only life she's ever known, a headstrong woman (along with her loving parents) finds herself on the verge of losing her family's berry farm in the heart of the Smoky Mountains to an impending retail expansion. Over one eventful holiday season, she tries every avenue possible to save the farm. But when the town leaders notify her that they will seize the property after the holidays, her last hope to unite the town is to throw a Christmas concert on the farm, headlined by her former love, a ne'er-do-well country music superstar. As the day of the concert approaches, they all must learn the value of family, faith and community before time runs out. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Did You Know?


Although widely considered a television film, actually had a very limited theatrical run a little over a month prior to its television debut, in three American cinemas, one in Dahlonega, Georgia and two in North Carolina (Charlotte and Kings Mountain). Overall, fourteen theatrical screenings were held across those three cinemas. See more »


The setting is December in the Smokey Mountains, a time when it is very cold outside. The trees all have bright green leaves on them, the grass is high, nobody is cold, and there are hostas and other seasonal plants visible in the background. This reveals the film was shot earlier in the year. See more »

User Reviews

Chaste romance that's only going one way at Christmas
29 July 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

A faith-based romance story set in Tennessee, Christmas in the Smokies is predictable and covers a well-trodden plot with not much originality but it has an attractive and competent cast guide the inoffensive and uninspiring mediocrity of a storyline. The music is nice too. It lacks scale in parts though - the concert is a let down which shows they didn't have the money for a few hundred extras to build tension. The film is swiftly brought to an end with an appalling plot device but overall it was a warm-hearted, good natured flick.
