A Pure Country Gift with Katrina Elam, Travis Fimmel, George Strait, and Dean Cain - plot synopsis

I have been chomping at the bit to share some details about "A Pure Country Gift," but I didn't want to be the extra who blabbed and told all the spoilers, as I would like to do this again! However, I saw a few details appearing in print today and felt at liberty to share some of what I know about the plot of "A Pure Country Gift."


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.

A Pure Country Gift stars Katrina Elam as Bobbie, a young singer who is given the gift of a beautiful voice, but with that gift come certain responsibilities. From what we were told, the movie chronicles the journey of Bobbie from unknown singer to rising start to superstar. Along the way she meets a handsome, compassionate cowboy (Travis Fimmel), her long-lost father (J.D. Parker), and another singer who becomes her mentor (George Strait).

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!

More About "A Pure Country Gift"

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.
