About Country at Heart

Struggling singer/songwriter Shayna Cook leaves Nashville for a break to go home to her small town of Silverado, where her rancher father, Judson, is prepping for a big harvest and music festival, right on their property. Shayna is surprised to meet Grady Parker, a talented songwriter who's had some success, and who's staying there to get some inspiration for his new album, and the two hit it off, both professionally and personally. But Shayna's relationship with Grady may be in jeopardy when his nemesis, country star Duke Sterling, whose greatest hit he allegedly stole from Grady, comes to the festival.
