Shout! Factory released Country Crush today. It’s a musical featuring country music. The movie is about about an aspiring singer (Nancy) who meets a country mechanic (Charlie). Even though Nancy has a boyfriend, Nancy and Charlie are drawn together. But then Nancy’s career gets in the way and the two struggle to stay together. The city-girl meets country-boy storyline is predictable, but you can’t help but root for them. And the music is awesome and I’m not even a country fan. Country Crush is available exclusively at Walmart. Thanks to Shout! Factory, I’m giving away the Country Crush DVD on my dad blog.
The two stars of Country Crush are Madeline Merlo (Nancy) and Munro Chambers (Charlie Bishop). Their acting is decent, but their singing is awesome. The film also features Jana Kramer. She plays the part of Katherine, Charlie’s sister-in-law. She’s awesome as a singer too. Other cast members include Sophie Simmons (Ainsley), Kevin McGarry (Cody Bishop), Samuel Faraci (Cody Jr.), Josh Bainbridge (Mark), Marcia Bennett (Mrs. Stanley), Jacob Blair (Brad), and Kristian Bruun (Barney). Country Crush was directed by Andrew Cymek.
Country Crush Synopsis
Charlie and his sister-in-law Katherine (Jana Kramer) have recently said goodbye to his older brother Cody, who has shipped out to the Middle East for another tour of duty. Katherine is facing all the love, worry and waiting that accompanies the deployment of a spouse while also being there for Charlie as he faces his own disappointments and loneliness. As Charlie decides to pursue a relationship with Nancy, and Nancy struggles with decisions about her career, Charlie sees with new eyes the importance in staying true to oneself, and begins to question his own choices. While their courtship is in turmoil, his brother’s sacrifices serves as a reminder of the price of love when it is lost.
