Heart of the Country Movie Review

**This is a sponsored post.  I was given the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this review.

Earlier this month, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released a wonderful movie to DVD entitled: Heart of the Country, starring country singer Jana Kramer.  My husband and I watched this movie together (it was my turn to pick).  He groans when I pick what he calls "chick flicks".  He begrudgingly watched this with me but I could see that he was actually enjoying it.  It is a movie about a couple in love who are torn apart when "Luke" is imprisoned for fraud, "Faith" (Jana Kramer) must return home to her father and sister whom she is at odds with.  This is a very emotional movie and I found myself tearing up a lot!  I loved this movie and I think my husband did too!  (Although he'd never admit it to the guys!) 

Movie Synopsis:

Based on the novel by Rene Gutteridge and John Ward, Heart of the Country is a love story starring country music singer Jana Kramer (“One Tree Hill”), Randy Wayne (“True Blood”), and Gerald McRaney (“Major Dad”). Faith (Kramer) and Luke (Wayne) have it all. Faith is a beautiful singer and Luke is an up-and- coming businessman. When their life together is shattered and she is forced to return home to the family she turned her back on years ago she must find the strength to love again. Watch Jana Kramer in her first leading movie role in the year's most inspirational and romantic movie event when it debuts on DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on August 20.

Rising star Jana Kramer is one to watch on and off the big screen. Selling an impressive 1.5 million tracks off her self-titled debut album, including her current single “I Hope It Rains” along with her debut hit single, “Why Ya Wanna,” Kramer was named Academy of Country Music’s New Female Vocalist of the Year for 2013. Performing in 30 cities, Kramer just kicked off an America-wide tour opening for Grammy-nominated platinum-selling superstar Blake Shelton’s Ten Times Crazier tour this summer. While all dates can be found on her website, a highlight of the tour includes the following cities:
