When forty-six-year-old washed-up country musician Jasper Red Blue looks at the past, all he sees is a series of failures. His one treasured success is six years battling alcoholism without the help of AA. To secure his children's future, Jasper desperately wants to produce a new album, but he can't write alone. And he won't work with just anyone. Jasper's record company manages to secure the writer of one of the biggest country music songs in recent history to help write the album. Cade Wallace is a long-haired former soul surfer, devastatingly handsome, talented, and willing to take a chance on the rugged musician. Jasper, on the other hand, is deep in the closet. With Jasper's career hanging in the balance, he can't promise Cade anything, and Cade eventually heads back to his full-time job as a truck driver, taking Jasper's hopes of a relationship with him. If Jasper's dream of a life together is ever to come true, he will have to take some big risks, putting both his career and his children's security on the line.
