George Strait's only live action film to date. See more »
In the first scene of the movie the tour bus is shown leaving one city and arriving at another. The city in both shots is Ft. Worth, Texas. See more »

This is a good vehicle for George Strait, although it IS a little hokey at times. Some of the dialogue seems to be a bit too predictable, some of the plot lines too hackneyed, but hey, it's only a movie! It's not an Academy Award nominee! This is a good film about a country music star who has had it with all the "stuff" of performing, and has had it with 'performing' itself. He simply wants to sing and play his guitar, he wants to get back to the basics of what pleased him about music in the first place. I wouldn't expect too many people outside of fans of country music to like this movie, or even understand it, but I like it. I understand it. And I accept it as 'Pure Entertainment'...and with a soundtrack like this one has, it can't go wrong. One might want to find a copy of "The Nashville Rebel" (sp) starring a very young and barefaced Waylon Jennings for comparison.
