Screen Shot 2017-07-22 at 12.33.39 PMDirector Damon Santostefano pulled this latest installment from a script by New York Times best-selling author Holly Goldberg Sloan. This moving tale of musical sisters discovering a letter from their late father who died in Iraq, is a journey for music lovers. Filmed on location in New Orleans and Nashville, this thoughtful and heart-warming movie is just the summer night flick for all.

Pure Country: Pure Heart boasts 23 songs, including 16 new songs making their debut in the film. Among the featured songs is Willie Nelson’s beloved “We Don’t Run,” Laura Bell Bundy’s all-new “Grass Ain’t Greener,” the Ronny Cox penned-and-performed “Silver City,” and a bevy of songs from award-winning country-music songwriters – including Trent Dabbs & Jabe Beyer, Jon Kenzie, Maren Morris and Dallas Davidson & Natalia Starzuynski. The songs are performed in the film by Bausch, Zuehlsdorff, Barnes, Bundy, Cox and Nelson. The soundtrack will be released on July 28 by WaterTower Music.

Pure Country: Pure Heart is rated ‘family-approved’ by The Dove Foundation and is the third film in the Pure Country series. Other titles include Pure Country and Pure Country 2: The Gift.

The Chicago Moms was lucky enough to have a few questions answered and get Meemaw’s pie recipe:

TCM * How did you prepare for these rolls… or was falling into these roles organic and without much effort?

Cozi Zuehsdorff: Playing sisters felt completely natural to both of us because in real life we both have sisters the same age as each other. We connected immediately.
TCM * What does country music mean to each of you?
Kaitlyn Bausch: Country music has always been a huge part of my life.
Cozi Zuehlsdorff: Country music is storytelling, Storytelling is my passion so it really resonates with me.
TCM * How fun was it working with legend Willie Nelson?
Cozi Zuehlsdorff: So fun!! He’s an icon.
Kaitlyn Bausch: It’s definitely a day I’ll remember for the rest of my life.
TCM * “Me Oh My-Meemaw’s Pecan Pie”? Tell us about it.
