  • Adaptation Displacement: The novel was out of print for years until the film came out, at which point it was put back into print with a brand new cover.
  • Awesome Music: "The Weary Kind."
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • Blake is opening for Tommy with "Fallin' and Flyin'", and Tommy comes out to duet with him. At first, it seems like a jerk move intended to steal the spotlight... until you notice in the instrumental break when Tommy is urging the crowd to cheer Blake on, and he's just trying to relive the old days of student-and-teacher. Tommy even tells the crowd that Blake was the man he learned everything from, and to applaud him again.

    • In the end, Tommy dedicating his performance of "The Weary Kind" to Blake.
  • What The Hell, Casting Agency?: The casting of the very Irish Colin Farrell as a Texan country star raised a few eyebrows. Once the movie came out, though, he was generally considered a One-Scene Wonder.
