The 10 Greatest Country Music Movies [VIDEO]
It is hard to believe it was 8 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.
That got me to thinking, “what are my favorites?” I have come up with a list of my top ten country music movies. After much debate “Rhinestone” and “Nashville” were left off my list. Let me know what I am missing here.
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
