In the film, Tucker plays ‘a country music star with an overzealous agent that booked her a “tricked-out” holiday special, helmed by a bombastic Hollywood director. She begins to feel overwhelmed by the whole endeavor and seeks refuge at her grandma’s Tennessee farm. While back home, she reconnects with her ex (Keith Carradine), taps into her musical roots, and finds an unexpected connection with three kids who have escaped the foster care system.’
Joining Tucker and Carradine in the cast are Ana Ortiz and Olivia Sanabia. Tucker also serves as executive producer the film alongside Stephanie Slack, Margret Huddleston, Ali Spuck and Kristofer McNeeley. Said Tucker in a statement: “It’s amazing that after 50 years in this business, I get to see my dreams become reality! And being part of A Nashville Country Christmas is definitely one of them. I’ve always wanted to do more acting, and it was a gift from the good Lord when this role came along. I can’t wait for everyone to enjoy the movie this season.”
