Retta Lee Jones has just graduated high school and is ready to strike out on her own and make a name for herself as a country singer. Unfortunately, the road to Nashville is filled with obstacles both financial and parental. Once Retta arrives in Nashville she faces a whole slew of unexpected challenges - homelessness and rejection. She makes some interesting new friends as she navigates the country scene. Retta is a character you will cheer for even if you don't love country music. 

— From Rene


Retta Lee Jones is blessed with a beautiful voice and has big dreams of leaving her tiny Tennessee hometown. So with a beaten-down car, a pocketful of hard-earned waitressing money, and stars in her eyes, Retta sets out to make it big in Nashville. But the road to success isn't a smooth one, and a girl's gotta figure out who she can trust in a town full of showmen and scammers. Soon Retta begins to have doubts: Can she make her mark and still stay true to herself?
