Brian Picks the Ten Greatest Country Music Themed Movies of All Time [VIDEO]
There have been a lot of great movies through the years with a country music theme. Some have been about the country lifestyle, some have been about the music business and some have been biopics about some of the biggest stars of the genre. There have been some great ones and some stinkers too...(Rhinestone).
It is hard to believe it was 11 years ago today that the Johnny Cash bio picture “Walk The Line” was released. This was a fantastic movie and the performances were amazing. Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon became Johnny and June. I rated this as one of my top five country music movies of all time. Here is my list of what I consider the top ten. How many have you seen?
10. Country Strong - Big star power, disappointing movie
9. Honky Tonk Man - Clint Eastwood gets his country on
8. Sweet Dreams - Patsy Cline story
7. Coal Miner's Daughter - The story of sweet Loretta Lynn
6. Tender Mercies - Robert Duvall was fantastic in this one
5. Urban Cowboy
4. O Brother Where Art Thou?
3. Pure Country
2. Walk The Line
1. Crazy Heart
