Somewhere between the windswept ridges of Northern Wyoming and the heat of a New Jersey summer lies the dream of a young woman’s life - to become a western music star, in spite of all odds.
Talented musician and singer Amelia Talbot sells out to a pair of Nashville promoters who promise her the financial success that eludes her. Destitute, she accepts their challenge to undergo a makeover, turning her into a "daughter of the American West."
Taking advantage of a debt owed by an old Army buddy, they convince ranch owner Jess McLain, a former rodeo star and musician himself, to take her in to the J Bar M and help her reach her goal, secretly cutting him into the deal. Burdened with debt, Jess reluctantly accepts, knowing the odds are against Amy’s success
She arrives, bringing her deepest problem with her - her dependence on alcohol. Together they will face the beauty and harshness of life on the land until each reaches the pinnacle that assures both of their places in it - and also tears them apart.
