Synopsis


Pure Country
The big-screen debut of country singer George Strait is a familiar tale of a star returning to his roots, a route traveled the same year by John Mellencamp in Falling From Grace (1992). Strait plays Dusty Chandler, one of the hottest performers in country music. Dusty feels that his elaborate stage show is overwhelming his music, a suspicion confirmed one night when he forgets several bars of a chart-topping hit and his fans don't even notice. Disillusioned, Dusty tells his manager Lula (Lesley Ann Warren) and best buddy Earl (John Doe) that he's taking a break. After shaving his beard and cutting off his ponytail, Dusty heads for the small farm town where he grew up, visiting his wise old grandmother (Molly McClure) and ending up at the ranch of the Tucker family, where nobody recognizes him. He becomes a hired hand, earning the respect of owner Ernest (Rory Calhoun) and falling in love with Ernest's daughter Harley (Isabel Glasser), a woman determined to save the struggling spread with victory in a Las Vegas rodeo. When Dusty learns that Lula has secretly replaced him onstage with her boyfriend (Kyle Chandler), he stages a showdown that wins Harley's affections. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    George Strait was excellent, Lesley Ann Warren was great better than I have seen her in a while. All of the supporting actors were great. It was George Strait at his finest. Great actor and hope he does more in the sequel than a cameo appearance. Use the talent that will get the job done.

    If you love "King George" than you will love this movie. Also you don't have to be a country music fan, it will help your enjoyment experience of it though. Last 20 minutes is tissue time. We have seen this movie over & over and it's still tissue time.

    This movie is pretty laid back and won't win best picture of the year but if you like country music it is worth watching.
