COMEDY. The one-liners and puns never end in this hilarious comedy! Everyone in town is eager for Shelby, a big-time country-music star, to arrive from Nashville to attend Uncle Roy’s memorial service. Hoping to convince Shelby to move home, get married, and have a family, Shelby’s mother sets her up on a blind date with Luke Duncan, a thrice-divorced ex-con who works at the local hardware store. Meanwhile, Shelby’s brother makes plans to leave the diner to pursue a singing career in Nashville, but no one has the heart to tell him he can’t sing including his friends, a Mr. Potato Head model and a mountain man/aspiring stand-up comedian. Then on the day of the memorial service, everyone discovers Uncle Roy was a bit of a womanizer when all his girlfriends show up wearing identical dresses, Uncle Roy’s secret son is revealed, and Uncle Roy arrives at his own memorial service in the form of a cake!
