Movie Info

Waylon Jennings stars as an up-and-coming country singer in this low-budget musical drama. Arlin Grove (Jennings) has just finished a hitch in the Army, and decides to give a career in music a shot upon returning to civilian life. Grove starts playing shows at local honky-tonks and begins to develop a reputation as an act to watch, as well as a loyal following. Grove also attracts the attention of pretty Molly Morgan (Mary Frann), and before long the two are married. Grove is approached by a manager who promises to make him a star and get him on the Grand Ole Opry, but it isn't until it's too late that Grove discovers he's been working with a phony. Depressed, Grove starts hitting the bottle hard, but Molly refuses to give up on her husband and arranges for him to get a prime gig in Nashville on her own. Along with Jennings in his big screen debut, Nashville Rebel also features vintage performances from Loretta Lynn, Faron Young, Porter Wagoner, Tex Ritter, Sonny James, and Henny Youngman.
