A rising country-music songwriter works with a fallen star to work their way fame, causing romantic complications along the way.

Kelly Canter: [quoting Waylon Jennings' lyrics] "If you see me getting smaller, I'm leaving, don't be grieving, just gotta get away from here. If you see me getting smaller, don't worry, and no hurry, I've got the right to disappear."
Kelly Canter: Don't be afraid to fall in love. It's the only thing that matters in life.
Kelly Canter: [to Chiles] That's how it's done, sweetheart.
Chiles Stanton: Hello James! Hi, Mrs. Kelly! Would you mind signing this for me, please?
Kelly Canter: Sure!
Chiles Stanton: Thank you so much! If you have any advice for a young artist such as myself, I'd love to hear it.
Kelly Canter: K: Oh, I have some advice.
[writes on the cover of the CD: "Stay away from my husband"]
Chiles Stanton: And James is being so helpful! I won't sell it on e-Bay or anything, I've just been a fan of yours since I was a little girl.
Kelly Canter: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Chiles Stanton: [to James] This is amazing, James! It's so beautiful, I don't even wanna pee in the toilet! Aaaah!
James Canter: You didn't think this is for you, did you?
Chiles Stanton: No! No! God, no.
James Canter: Okay. See you in Houston.
Beau Hutton: [they're riding on a train] So, what do you think?
Kelly Canter: I think I'm Kelly Canter and I'm breaking the law!
Reporter: Chiles, who is your idol?
Chiles Stanton: Kelly Canter and Jesus Christ.
Beau Hutton: [to Kelly] You and Jesus Christ, who would have thought?
Kelly Canter: They love her.
James Canter: The first time I heard you sing... I thought that it must be what angels sound like. Thought I died and gone to heaven.
Kelly Canter: I love that story.
James Canter: 'Cause it's true.
Chiles Stanton: What if I told you I was never Miss Dallas?
Beau Hutton: Well I'll probably like you even more. Were you?
Chiles Stanton: I almost was.
Beau Hutton: What happened?
Chiles Stanton: I choked. Like always. They asked me what my stance on global warming was and all I could think of was a planet in a big old sweater my Grandma used to make me.
Beau Hutton: I'm sure that'll keep the world nice and warm.
Chiles Stanton: Do you still like me?
Beau Hutton: I still like you.
Chiles Stanton: I'm serious, Beau.
Beau Hutton: I still like you.
Chiles Stanton: I'm not what I seem.
Beau Hutton: Oh maybe that's what I like about you. D'you ever think of that? You know maybe that's what makes you different from all those other pretty pennies out there.
[they kiss]
Beau Hutton: I enjoy playing music, I don't care who it's for.
Chiles Stanton: [singing] ... whiskey drowns and the beer chases my blues away.
[she sees Beau on the doorway]
Chiles Stanton: Oh hi Beau.
Beau Hutton: Ever be here to wish me good luck?
Chiles Stanton: I'm on board. I'm playing three songs tonight.
Beau Hutton: Says who?
Chiles Stanton: Says James Canter, that's who.
Beau Hutton: Bullshit.
Chiles Stanton: Bulltrue. I happen to be a consideration as an opening act for Miss Kelly Canter. James, my new manager, booked me this gig as a rehearsal. Not that I need it. I've been waiting for this moment since I was four year old.
Beau Hutton: Last time I saw you sing, you froze up like an ice cube.
Chiles Stanton: That was seven and a half months ago. And it was just one time. I'm not playing county fairs anymore. I'm much more seasoned.
Beau Hutton: You don't have any songs. You can't even play the guitar.
Chiles Stanton: I've been writing songs. I got a whole bunch of them right over there.
[points at her dresser]
Beau Hutton: [reads the titles of the lyrics] Little Heartbreaker, Summer Girl, Rinky Dinky Town... these aren't songs, these are rides at Disneyland.
Chiles Stanton: [sings mockingly] I've got friends in low places where the whiskey drowns...
Kelly Canter: I loved that baby too, Beau. I was sadder than anyone when I lost it. I can't change my past, you know? I can't change how much I drink. I'm stronger than all of us, you know?
Beau Hutton: I know.
Kelly Canter: I'm gonna give them one hell of a show.
Chiles Stanton: How do I look?
Beau Hutton: Like a Country Barbie.
Chiles Stanton: [happy] Thank you!
Chiles Stanton: Dallas is gonna be canceled isn't it? She's crazy.
Beau Hutton: She's not crazy. She's the only honest one here. Why are you here Chiles?
Chiles Stanton: Uhm.
Beau Hutton: I'm tired.
[closes the door]
Chiles Stanton: Wait.
[blocked the door]
Beau Hutton: Wait what? You wanna come in?
Chiles Stanton: Stop it.
Beau Hutton: Fine.
Chiles Stanton: Wait. Don't... don't make me say it.
Beau Hutton: Say what?
Chiles Stanton: You're being very rude right now.
Beau Hutton: Tell me what you want.
Chiles Stanton: Nothing.
Chiles Stanton: Oh, hi Beau.
Beau Hutton: You better be here to wish me luck.
Chiles Stanton: I'm on the board. I'm playing three songs tonight.
Beau Hutton: Says who?
Chiles Stanton: I happen to be in consideration as the new opening act for Miss Kelly Canter. James, my new manager, booked me this gig as a rehearsal... not that I need it.
Beau Hutton: Clint, tell me Garth Brooks here is not opening for me.
Clint: She's not, she's closing for you. Can't do nothing about it either.
Beau Hutton: This is your place, you can tell her no.
Clint: Not for James Canter, I can't.
Beau Hutton: You're gonna let this prom queen get up on stage? For Christ's, sake, Patsy Cline sang here.
Clint: I don't care, she's still gonna play. I'm not cutting your set, Beau, you got the same three songs.
Chiles Stanton: Don't worry, Beau. I have no intention of stealing your invisible career. See, I want one.
Beau Hutton: What are you looking at?
[takes papers from Chiles' hands]
Beau Hutton: When did General MacArthur return to the Phillipines?
Chiles Stanton: 1946.
Beau Hutton: What does "amorous" means?
Chiles Stanton: Having a propensity for falling in love.
Beau Hutton: [laughing] What the hell are these things?
Chiles Stanton: Well... as a woman in this industry, people have a habit of thinking I'm some kind of ignoramous. And my pageant training doesn't exactly help things, so I have to overcompensate. I don't want people to think I'm some dumb beauty queen.
Beau Hutton: I never called you a dumb beauty queen. I'm serious, anybody that says "ignoramous" so casually... that's not dumb at all.
Beau's Bandmate: Ugh. Why don't y'all sleep together and get this over with?
Chiles Stanton: Don't make me say it.
Beau Hutton: Say what?
Chiles Stanton: You're being very rude right now.
Beau Hutton: Tell me what you want.
Chiles Stanton: Nothing.
[they kiss]
Beau's Mother: So you're opening for the looney tunes? They need to lock that one up and throw away the key.
Beau Hutton: She's not crazy.
James Canter: [to reporters] We couldn't be happier. We got 3 sold out shows, we got the hottest 2 acts of country music coming around in a long time, and Texas never seen anything like this.
Reporter: Kelly, how do you feel returning to Dallas?
Kelly Canter: I feel ok, I think it's gonna be good.
Reporter: Anything else to say to your fans?
Kelly Canter: I love y'all, thanks for coming out.
James Canter: She looks great, doesn't she, guys?
Kelly Canter: Thank you so much, thank you.
