Plot Summary
Leaving her rural life in Arkansas, Shirlee Kenyon (Dolly Parton) moves to Chicago and seeks employment at a radio station. When a mix-up finds Shirlee sitting in as the host on a show for call-in advice, her common-sense wisdom wins over fans. Soon she's "Doctor Shirlee," an in-demand on-air personality, but, of course, she's lacking in the proper credentials, a fact that journalist Jack Russell (James Woods) already suspects. Will Shirlee be able to keep her new gig if the truth gets out?
