Country music legend Kenny Rogers teams up with Spur Award–winner Mike Blakely for a rousing tale set in the heyday of Nashville
It’s 1975, and Ronnie Breed’s chart-topping rock band has just self-destructed.
He opts to return home to Texas and reinvent himself as a solo act. Enter Dan Campbell, Ronnie’s cousin. Dan wants to televise a Texas Hold ’Em tournament…and Ronnie could never say no to his cousin. As celebrity spokesman for the poker tournament, Ronnie is soon recruiting world-class gamblers in illegal card games and trying to put together a country band to win a Nashville recording contract. Then things start to get weird—hidden cameras, secret high-stakes side-bets, a visit from the FBI. Ronnie begins to wonder if he will end up with the girl of his dreams in the Country Music Hall of Fame…or broke and lonely in some prison cell. What are the chances?
