Bobby was born with a melody in his heart and the right words in his soul. He might not have followed convention and become a hip-hop singer or even a blues singer, but his heart was in country music. So Bobby Saxton is the black male lead singer of a country music band that is still looking for a good name.
Mindy is tiny, blond, and beautiful. She also knows how to get things done. Bobby has liked Mindy for years, from the time she was in high school. Finally they explore their feelings for each other, but Mindy is also determined to do something about the band's ambition. She gets a friend of hers, an agent, to come and watch them play.
The band goes back and forth. Can they take the risk of leaving their day jobs and going on a tour before auditioning for studios? The agent tells them that that's the best way to make a mark.
How will Bobby and Mindy, and their budding relationship, deal with all these changes? Bobby already finds that word of his talent has got out. Women are interested in him, and Bobby is, after all, only human. Will he and Mindy find a way to stay together, or will their relationship be the first of many sacrifices demanded by the pursuit of fame and fortune? Perhaps a big break demands payment, and that payment might be a broken heart.
