don't expect a lot, just good music
26 February 2009 | by didi-5See all my reviews

'The Road to Nashville' has a paper-thin plot - Doodles Weaver tries to convince top country acts to appear in a film - but some great musical performances from anyone and everyone who was big in that field of music at the time.

So you'll see Johnny Cash, Kitty Wells, Lefty Frizzell, the Carter Family, Waylon Jennings, Marty Robbins, and many more, singing their best known songs in a mix of styles.

As a music revue, this is hugely enjoyable, but just don't expect anything other than a snapshot of Nashville keepers at the top of their game. For what it is, it is great fun and a real treat, if a little dated.
