From Country Stage to Silver Screen 
Arriving on Blu-ray and DVD Today On May 1
Exclusively at Walmart, Sam’s Club and Walmart.com

Clint Black is known around Nashville as a country music star, but he’s been spotted in film roles as well, including Flicka 2 and Maverick. But Black isn’t the first country star to find his footing in films! Here, we will count down the top southern singers in film, including Tim McGraw (The Blind Side), Dolly Parton (9 to 5) and Taylor Swift (Valentine’s Day).

When Toby (Clint Black) takes on a job at a stable with Flicka in tow, the owner’s teenage daughter Kelly (Kacey Rohl), quickly bonds with the wild horse. A budding equestrian rider, she hopes to break Flicka for an upcoming competition, despite her mother’s (Lisa Hartman Black) disapproval. With the competition approaching, a rival trainer stealing business, and a growing fear they may be forced to sell the stable, Toby steps in to turn things around for Kelly and her mother.


Tim McGraw in The Blind Side

Tim McGraw is a celebrated country artist, with hugely successful albums and a multitude of award wins. But his first starring film role was actually in 2006’s Flicka! Since then, McGraw has appeared in many successful television shows and movies, the most celebrated of which is 2009’s The Blind Side. In The Blind Side, McGraw played Sean Tuohy opposite Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock.

Dolly Parton in 9 to 5

We all know Dolly Parton for her hit songs like “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You,” but she is also a fantastic actress! Parton’s very first film role was as buxom secretary, Doralee Rhodes in 1980’s 9 to 5. Not only was Parton nominated for two Golden Globes for her role, but she also wrote and recorded the film’s theme song (also called “9 to 5”), which went on to become number one on both Billboard’s Country and Hot 100 charts. Parton has since starred in many successful films, including The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Steel Magnolias. 

Taylor Swift in Valentine’s Day

Taylor Swift is, at the young age of 22, a beloved country artist with multiplatinum-selling albums and numerous Grammy Awards under her belt. Swift made her film debut in 2010’s star-studded film, Valentine’s Day, as the love-struck high school student, Felicia. For Swift’s comedic role she won the Teen Choice Award for Movie Female Breakout. Swift followed up Valentine’s Day by voicing Audrey in 2012’s The Lorax.

Faith Hill in The Stepford Wives

Faith Hill is well known for having sold more than 40 million records worldwide and for winning five Grammy’s and myriad of other awards. Her first acting role was in a 1995 episode of the television show “Touched by an Angel,”  and Hill made her one and only film appearance to date in 2004’s reboot of The Stepford Wives alongside Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick and Glenn Close. 

Dwight Yoakam in Sling Blade

Dwight Yoakam has been popular since the early 1980s, and in that time he has sold more than 25 million records and recorded over 20 albums. Though Yoakam has appeared in 25 films and numerous television shows, he is probably best known for his acclaimed performance as the abusive Doyle Hargraves in the 1996 film Sling Blade. Since Sling Blade, Yoakam has starred in many successful films such as Panic Room, Crank and Four Christmases.
