Pure Country: Pure Heart is the moving, music-driven tale of teenage sisters Ada and Piper. Upon discovering a letter about their late father, a Marine who died in Iraq, they leave rural Tennessee and hit the road secretly in search of the truth about the man they never knew. As they uncover his past as a budding country music star, the sisters find their own voice, beginning their journey as singers/songwriters.
Filmed on location in New Orleans and Nashville, Pure Country: Pure Heart boasts 23 songs, curated by music supervisors Frankie Pine (Nashville, Mozart in the Jungle) and Mandi Collier (Nashville, Secrets and Lies), including 16 new songs making their debut in the film. Among the featured songs is Willie Nelson’s beloved “We Don’t Run,” Laura Bell Bundy’s all-new “Grass Ain’t Greener,” the Ronny Cox penned-and-performed “Silver City,” and a bevy of songs from award-winning country-music songwriters – including Trent Dabbs & Jabe Beyer, Jon Kenzie, Maren Morris and Dallas Davidson & Natalia Starzuynski. The songs are performed in the film by Bausch, Zuehlsdorff, Barnes, Bundy, Cox and Nelson. WaterTower Music will release the Pure Country: Pure Heart soundtrack on August 1st.
This is the third film in the Pure Country series. Other titles include Pure Country and Pure Country 2: The Gift.
