A Pure Country Gift Stars Katrina Elam, Travis Fimmel, J.D. Parker with appearances by George Strait
As reported in A Pure Country Gift invites country fans to free concert taping with George Strait and Katrina Elam, I have had the unexpected pleasure of being cast as an extra in A Pure Country Gift, the upcoming holiday movie which stars Katrina Elam, Travis Fimmel, J.D. Parker and with a couple of special appearances by country music superstar, George Strait.
A Pure Country Gift is a film that will have a real Nashville feel. On Saturday I spent twelve hours at Nashville's Northstar Studios working with other extras in scenes shot for the movie's talk show sequence.
Today I celebrated Veterans Day by joining 40 paid extras and several hundred volunteers who filmed some concert footage scenes for the film with Katrina Elam and other cast members at the Municipal Auditorium. We learned the chorus to "That's My Man" and got to experience wind machines first hand.
Extras received notice that filming would take place at Twin Pines ranch in Lebanon on Friday and that actor George Strait would be on hand.
No official release date for A Pure Country Gift has been announced. On Saturday extras were told the film is coming out on CMT this holiday season, but today the predominant rumor was A Pure Country Gift is headed toward local theaters in 2010. Although some websites have called it a sequel to the 1992 film, Pure Country, where George Strait starred as country singer Dusty Chandler, the bits and pieces of storyline that were shared with the extras make A Pure Country Gift sound like a new and separate story.
Check out the slideshow for some backstage photos of A Pure Country Gift extras as well as actors J.D. Parker and Travis Fimmel. J.D. Parker spent a great deal of time with the extras, providing many fun photo ops. More photos of the A Pure Country Gift extras' experience and a plot synopsis coming soon!
A Pure Country Gift with Katrina Elam, Travis Fimmel, George Strait, and Dean Cain - plot synopsis
As mentioned in A Pure Country Gift with Katrina Elam, Travis Fimmel, J.D. Parker and appearances by George Strait, I had the opportunity to work as an extra in the upcoming movie A Pure Country Gift. Directed by Chris Cain, who also shot the first film Pure Country, A Pure Country Gift is not exactly a sequel to "Pure Country," although George Strait, who was the lead in the first movie in 1992, does have a role in the second film and was scheduled to appear at a shoot in Lebanon this past Friday.
