Drama about an up-and-coming country music star (Garrett Hedlund, TRON: Legacy) who sparks with a has-been singer (Gwyneth Paltrow, Iron Man).

"Soon after a rising young singer-songwriter gets involved with a fallen, emotionally unstable country star, the pair embarks on a career resurrection tour helmed by her husband/manager and featuring a beauty-queen-turned-singer. Between concerts, romantic entanglements and old demons threaten to derail them all." (Official Synopsis)
