Synopsis

When he inherits a casino in Las Vegas, Woody, a stage-struck country boy, leaves his Tennessee home and sets out for the city. En route he befriends a beautiful woman (played by Jayne Mansfield) by pushing her disabled automobile to a garage. Arriving in Vegas with his buddy, Jeepers, he discovers that his casino is a rebuilt barn badly in need of repairs. The former bartender, and the singer, Boots, offer to help put the place back in shape, and Woody's Aunt Clementine shows up with her life savings. Together they plan a country music jamboree, and the beautiful woman arrives to handle the gambling casino. The show is a huge success, and the former country boy becomes a big-time entrepreneur. In addition, he and Boots fall in love.
