PURE COUNTRY: A country singer finds himself straddling two worlds: the down-home place where his musical roots are set, and the glittery fast lane where his success has taken him. In his first foray into the world of motion pictures, country star George Strait is affecting and heartwarming. PURE COUNTRY also features 10 songs by Straight recorded exclusively for the film.
HONEYSUCKLE ROSE: Country music star Willie Nelson plays Buck Bonham, a modern-day cowboy touring the country circuit.
Description by Warner Home Video:
Pure Country/Honeysuckle Rose
They're singing the songs...and living them. George Strait already had 25 chart-topping hits when he made his film debut in Pure Country (Side A). He plays Dusty, who ditches his superstar C&W career to rediscover his simple roots...and finds that the simple life can be complex when his manager (Lesley Ann Warren) retaliates. Next, in another savvy, song-filled slice of the performing life, Willie Nelson is On the Road Again for a film that's not autobiographical yet knows its highways and byways well. Dyan Cannon, Amy Irving and Slim Pickens join Nelson in a film that has the knack for providing the right song at the right time. Get on the bus. With Honeysuckle Rose (Side B) marking its DVD Debut, you can't help but go places.
