Country singer and songwriter Buck Bonham has a solid following in his home state of Texas and in the West, but has not had a hit that would give him national fame. As he and his band are on the road, his wife and son miss him, and Buck is begining to wonder if he should continue with his musical career or quit. Just as Buck finds himself at this crossroad, his guitarist and good friend Garland announces his retirement, and his daughter Lily replaces him in the band. Lily, who has had a crush on Buck since she was a little girl, is now a lovely woman, and an additional consideration for Buck in choosing home or career.
