"Bad" Blake is a down-on-his-luck Country singer who nowadays travels on the road to perform one night stands wherever he can get them. His protegee, Tommy Sweet, is now a bigger star than him, and that gets on his nerves. One day, reporter Jean Craddock comes along and asks for an interview. He complies, and the ensuing relationship with her and her son Buddy sets up the road to get his life back on track. The film became a sleeper success, in great part because of buzz for JeffBridges' performance, and earned him the [[AcademyAward Oscar]] for Best Actor. The film also won the Oscar for Best Original Song ("The Weary Kind"), and MaggieGyllenhaal was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

* ActorAllusion: When Jeff Bridges sat down at that bowling alley bar, one half expected him to [[TheBigLebowski order a White Russian.]]
** Co-star and co-producer Robert Duvall also starred in ''TenderMercies'', another movie about an alcoholic country singer in search of redemption. Bonus points because Duvall won Best Actor, too.

* CountryMusic: Quite a bit of it is sung throughout the movie.
* DevelopmentHell: Thomas Cobb often tells his students that the book didn't do too well and actually went out of print after its first edition. However, the film rights were picked up numerous times throughout the next two decades and every time the film rights were optioned he'd get a small royalty check. When this version of the film was optioned, it was the first time Cobb had ever heard from an actual director. The film itself took only a month to complete.
