A drama centered on a rising country-music songwriter (Hedlund) who sparks with a fallen star (Paltrow). Together, they mount his ascent and her comeback, which leads to romantic complications involving her husband/manager (McGraw) and a beauty queen-turned-singer (Meester).
Oh, hi Beau.
It would have been easier to wish me luck.
I'm on board. I'm playing three songs tonight.
I happen to be in consideration as the new opening act for Miss Kelly Canter. James, my new manager, booked me this gig as a rehearsal... not that I need it.
Clint, tell me Garth Brooks here is not opening for me.
She's not, she's closing for you. Can't do nothing about it either.
This is your place, you can tell her no.
Not for James Canter, I can't.
You're gonna let this prom queen get up on stage? For Christ's, sake, Patsy Cline sang here.
I don't care, she's still gonna play. I'm not cutting your set, Beau, you got the same three songs.
Don't worry, Beau. I have no intention of stealing your invisible career. See, I want one.

Errors in geography: A billboard referencing Nashville exit 209A is very prominent in the background and they show the Nashville skyline while supposedly in Dallas. They also had real Nashville TV station logos on their microphones.
