When Brett Blue Blake's mother dies, he leaves his career as a stockbroker on Wall Street in New York City to put together a Country-Western band in Texas. He hopes to win the heart of the beautiful Laura Wynne, who he met when she visited New York, while searching for the family of his biological dad, John Blue, and for the man who killed his dad in Waco.
Brett Blue Blake learns the father he has known all his life is not his biological parent. Brett's biological father was John Blue, a guitarist in Texas. He was murdered when Brett was a newborn. Brett's mom returned with her infant son to her home in New York. When Brett's mother dies and he is left with only an aunt and uncles in New York, he decides to follow his dream of being a keyboardist in a band. Having met a pretty girl visiting New York from Texas, he believes the state where he was born is the best place to start his new career. He can both search for John Blue's family and also try to discover who murdered his dad. During his flight to the Lone Star State and once living in Texas, Brett writes songs for his band to perform as they travel around the state. Among the songs are "Texas Bootstomp Boogie" and "Two Guitars, an Old Piano, Hank and Elvis and Me."

Texas Bootstomp Boogie
The trailer features the song "Texas Bootstomp Boogie" I wrote in 1979 while performing piano and vocals at the Cellar Door in Houston, TX. The late, great Jimmy T. Baldridge and his band recorded the song. It was arranged by the wonderful Mr. Shelly Berg.
