A bittersweet character study, it works remarkably well. You even begin to believe Clint Eastwood in the role. The star's son, Kyle Eastwood, makes an impressive film debut.

By far one of Clint's masterpieces. His performance is incredible along with that of his son's. There are so many memorable moments and the story of a country singers dream is told perfectly. An outstanding adventure told beautifully and one that will definitely stand out as one of his true classics.

Likeable story of a country singer trying to make to nashville. Great change of pace for Eastwood from westerns.
