A guitar-playing country boy steals money from a neighbor and heads for Nashville to make a name for himself. En route he is beaten up and has his guitar broken by hoodlums. Destitute, he is befriended by Opal and Matt Nelson and introduced to Rev. Rose Conley, a preacher who gives him work as a handy man and rehabilitates him. Meanwhile, under an assumed name he starts singing country music in Nashville theaters. Eventually his father and the neighbor he robbed are brought to a theater where the young singer is appearing. He publicly apologizes from the stage and dedicates a song, "I'm Sorry," to them.
