Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Backwoods music abounds in this musical that centers on the travails of Freddie Fisher and his Schnickelfritz Band, a country music group struggling along the rocky road to success. Their troubles begin when their manager, unable to convince anyone to hire the high-spirited hillbillies, gets angry with them and takes off to the big city. There he discovers that the band's rivals Ernest Tubb and His Texas Troubadors are about to receive a hefty radio sponsorship on a popular show. Hearing opportunity's knock, he thunders back home to get Fisher and the Schnickelfritzes to the station first to steal the spot from the Troubadours. Unfortunately, when not performing, the band works on a woman's farm. When she learns they are about to leave her stuck, she begs them to reconsider and then demands that they stay.
