A Brand New Country Musical
In 1992, George Strait, AKA The King Of Country, starred in a soul-stirring country music-infused feature film that would become a sleeper cult hit despite initial poor reviews. Pure Country, a story about a country music star that loses his connection with music and embarks on a journey of self discovery not only spawned Strait's best selling album, but continues to be aired on Country Music Television every week to ardent fans. Its chart-topping hits 'Heartland', 'Baby, Your Baby' and 'I Cross My Heart' return to the Lone Star State during the hotly anticipated world premiere of TUT's Pure Country musical adaptation in the spring of 2020.
Country music's biggest star Dusty Wyatt Chandler is becoming disillusioned with the contractual obligations and overproduced stage shows that take away the heart and authenticity of his music. In an effort to find the spark he once felt for writing and performance, he walks away from the spotlight, cuts his ponytail off and heads back to his small country hometown where love and redemption await, even if his old manager is determined to keep milking the Dusty cash cow.
