October 8, 2012 – George Strait

Twenty years have gone by since the release of Pure Country, the movie that marked the acting debut of George Strait. Though the film didn’t shatter box-office records, it’s still fondly remembered by fans and often shows up on CMT and other TV outlets.

In this special section, CW looks back at Pure Country and how George had to be talked into doing the movie in the first place. The special also recalls the hugely popular soundtrack album and the hits it produced, including “I Cross My Heart” and “When Did You Stop Loving Me.”

Plus, find out what a few of the Pure Country co-stars are up to these days.
