BROKEN BRIDGES CMT - PREMIERE!
Superstar, chart-topping recording artist and top-grossing live performer, Toby Keith, will make his feature film debut along with a notable cast, including Kelly Preston, Willie Nelson, Lindsey Haun, Tess Harper and Burt Reynolds. BROKEN BRIDGES is a bittersweet story of former high school sweethearts Bo Price (Keith) and Angela Delton (Preston) who return home after the deaths of their younger brothers, forcing them to deal with ghosts of the past and their uncertain future. Keith plays a country music singer who has fallen from the spotlight and faces life changes after coming home, reuniting with his true love and meeting his 16-year-old daughter (Haun) for the first time. BROKEN BRIDGES is a journey of discovery about shattering preconceived notions and reinventing one’s own concepts of family, reconciliation and acceptance.

SOUTHERN FRIED FLICKS WITH HAZEL SMITH presents GREAT BALLS OF FIRE
- CMT PREMIERE!
SOUTHERN FRIED FLICKS WITH HAZEL SMITH is one part movie, one part cooking show and all Hazel! As she hosts the movie, Hazel will also show you how to cook a real down home dish and of course, give the “Hot Dish” on your favorite country stars! And you never know who might show up in Hazel’s kitchen! GREAT BALLS OF FIRE is the story of Jerry Lee Lewis, arguably the greatest and certainly one of the wildest musicians of the 1950s. His arrogance, remarkable talent, and unconventional lifestyle often brought him into conflict with others in the industry, and even earned him the scorn and condemnation of the public.
