Pure Country

Movie: Pure Country
Director: Christopher Cain
Produced by: Warner Brothers
Released By: Warner Brothers
MPAA Rating: PG

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. 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 and best buddy Earl 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 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 and falling in love with Ernest’s daughter Harley, 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, he stages a showdown that wins Harley’s affections.
