Bird Barrett has grown up on the road, singing backup in her family’s bluegrass band. But one fateful night, when Bird fills in for her dad by singing lead, a scout in the audience offers her a spotlight all her own. Soon Bird is caught up in a whirlwind of songwriting meetings, recording sessions, and music-video shoots. Her first single hits the top twenty, and she’s even caught the eye of her longtime crush, fellow roving musician Adam Dean. With Bird’s star on the rise, though, the rest of her life falls into chaos as tradition and ambition collide.
