Moved to the Trivia tab.
* InvisibleAdvertising: Paramount only distributed the film in the South and left it for dead in a crowded summer as they felt that the film had very limited appeal outside of country music fans. When the director found out about this, he was not pleased (as he felt it was one of his better films). Eventually, the film was re-marketed as an art film after River Phoenix's death in some markets but audiences still didn't show.

* NamesTheSame: Miranda insists her middle name bears no relation to that other [[Creator/ElvisPresley Presley]]. Her father was an Elvis fan.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Linda Lou apparently had a thing for Kyle -- [[ObliviousToLove who never realized]]. She tells him about it on their departure. --> '''Linda:''' You know, there's something that you never understood about me ... You could have had me for a song.

In Nashville, there are 10,000 singer-songwriters chasing success ... with one chance in a million of getting it. For Miranda Presley (Samantha Mathis), that's one chance worth taking. Fresh from New York City, Miranda befriends three fellow hopefuls: shy Connecticut cowboy Kyle Davidson (Dermot Mulroney), SouthernBelle Linda Lue Linden (Creator/SandraBullock), and James Wright (Creator/RiverPhoenix), a cocky Texan with brooding good looks and a honeyed voice. Together they begin a rocky ride down Music City's well-worn highway, finding hope, heartbreak, happiness ... and [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove The Thing Called Love]].

There's a well-made DVD out there that has an [[DVDCommentary audio commentary]] and several nice extras including a particularly [[TearJerker tear-jerking]] one called "Our Friend River".
