From director Andrew Cymek, this heartwarming, and sometimes heartbreaking, film tells the story of city-girl Nancy Taylor (Madeline Merlo), an aspiring singer who is struggling to launch her career and navigate a relationship with an opportunistic music producer. While on her way to a party out in the country with her best friend Ainsley (Sophie Tweed Simmons), her car breaks down and a good-hearted and handsome stranger named Charlie Bishop (Munro Chambers) shows up with a tow. Sparks fly between Nancy and Charlie, two young people searching for love, both unsure of the paths they’re on.
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.
With its themes of love, duty and strong family values, woven together with a dynamic soundtrack, this is a film that will appeal to multiple generations, and tug at the heartstrings of all families. Country Crush is sure to run away with many hearts.
