Jake Reeson, an up and coming country singer, has the whole world in his hands until his ego throws it all away.

With nothing but partying and music on his mind, Jake (Joel Smallbone, For King and Country) is forced to take a hard look at himself and the ashes around him after life and his singing career slowly falls apart. Jake’s old flame, Becca, suddenly reappears back in his life after seeing her again at a local music show. Good girl Becca, never forgetting who Jake is, makes him work for it only to fall for him again.

His mother, MIA, harbors a painful secret… the father Jake thought was dead is alive. To protect Jake from the pain of knowing what his father, BO (Billy Ray Cyrus, Doc, Mulholland Drive, Hannah Montana), had become after a horrible accident, Mia thought it best if Jake believed Bo was dead. Jake eventually has a "random" encounter with Bo on the street in a Nashville suburb that sets off a chain of events to bring Bo back into his life and hopefully reconciliation to the family.

“Like a Country Song” is a story about Humility, Forgiveness, and Redemption in the presence of Pain and Burden.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. review: "...This film looks and sounds great.  To begin with, veteran actor-turned-director, Johnny Remo (Hardflip,Cutback, A Letter to Dad), spearheaded the project by serving as Writer, Director, and Producer. He had the good sense to employ professional singers in a film about singers, and it paid off. Joel Smallbone of the band "For King and Country" plays the lead character, Jake, and Madelyn Duetch plays a supporting role.  Billy Ray Cyrus, country music star and actor, plays Jake’s estranged father and delivers a compelling performance in every scene he graces.  The Music Supervisor, hit songwriter Tammy Hyler, penned several #1 songs and Top 40 hits. With all of that musical adrenaline on set, the movie has a genuine "Nashville music scene" feel that is just plain enjoyable to watch.  Remo also brought in a great cast of actors (even the supporting ones!), who maintained on-screen chemistry and delivered solid performances throughout the film." [Full Review by Melinda Ledman Linked Below]

Overall great movie with a great message of forgiveness, hope and healing.  Check out the CFDb Movie Review.
