Book, Music & Lyrics
WILLARD BECKHAM
The show tells the lighter-than-air-story of how G.C. Wright manages to save his tiny recording studio from being foreclosed on by his nasty used-car magnate cousin Big Al thanks to a song called "Lucky Guy" - a sure-fire hit that's been penned by Billy Ray Jackson, who's come to Nashville to record it, having won a contest that G.C.'s company has sponsored. Unfortunately (or fortunately as the case may be), Big Al gets wind of the tune,and schemes to steal the number away from the guys with the help of Miss Jeannie Jeannine, the Queen of Country music whose crown is showing its age.

THE STORY

SYNOPSIS

Nashville is the Mecca of country music and it breeds recording stars the way Kentucky breeds champions. This is why Billy Ray Jackson has come to Music City. He won a matchbook songwriting contest, sponsored by Wright Records, and has come to Nashville to record his song and become famous. G.C. Wright, the owner of Wright Records, has also eagerly awaited the arrival of Billy Ray. He believes "Lucky Guy" ? Billy Ray's winning song ? will save his struggling record label.

This possibility does not sit very well with G.C.'s cousin, Big Al Wright. He is the proprietor of the most famous used-car dealer franchise in Nashville and wants the property Wright Records resides on to expand his car empire. Big Al contrives to hustle Billy Ray and G.C. out of the song and enlists the help of Miss Jeannie Jeannine, the queen of country music, to assist him with his plan. She has not had a hit since before Johnny Cash started wearing black and "Lucky Guy" is just the tune she needs to reclaim her spot at the top. Jeannie begins to employ all her womanly wilds, which are plenty, and star power to try to seduce naive Billy Ray, but he only has eyes for Wanda, the secretary at Wright Records.

The bamboozle is all set to take place during Big Al's Grand Ole Opry show. But Jeannie has a change of heart after realizing that Billy Ray is an earnest country guy that is devoted to another woman. Even after Big Al puts the pressure on, Jeannie transforms herself from conniving villainess to heroine, saving Wright Records by allowing Billy Ray to sing his song on stage. G.C. and Big Al come to an agreement about the property. G.C. finally makes an honest woman out of his girlfriend, the gossiping hairdresser/wanna be country singer Chicky Lay, and Billy Ray and Wanda are ready to make it a double wedding. Jeannie maintains her status as the queen of country music and all is right in Nashville.
