In its heyday, the “Old Smokey Country Store” was more than a mountain-top general store…its porch was the scene of Saturday night musical jamborees that rivaled the Grand Ole Opry. Now in a state of complete disrepair and facing foreclosure, Emma enlists the help of hilariously comedic friends Jinks, Olive and Cordelia, Olive’s daughter, to help return “Old Smokey” to its former glory days. Through the trials, laughs and joyful songs Emma and her friends rediscover their true love for tradition, friendship and family.
