Superstar and Academy Award-winner Clint Eastwood ("Unforgiven," "Million Dollar Baby") is a Depression-era, hard-drinking country musician who's a man of the moment. He is also chasing a distinctly American dream -- to get to the Grand Ole Opry -- and is joined by his nephew (played by real-life son, Kyle) who attempts to keep his uncle sober and out of trouble. Time magazine says "Clint Eastwood shines," while CBS-TV calls this "a superior movie that's an adventure for the heart... Clint Eastwood has never been better -- with an impressive debut for Kyle." Co-starring Barry Corbin ("Northern Exposure") and directed by Eastwood, with a score of great country and western hits.
