Rate this:
In 1959, Maxine, Bonnie and Jim Ed Brown were enjoying enormous show business success, rivaled only by their longtime friend Elvis Presley. Their huge hit topped country and pop charts, and gave rise to the polished sound of the multi-billion dollar country music industry we know today. Others tried - and failed - to learn the secret of their perfect pitch, which was honed by a childhood spent listening for the elusive pulse and tone of a perfectly tempered blade at their parent's Arkansas sawmill.

But the Browns' celebrity couldn't survive a changing world, and the bonds of family began to fray along with their fame. Maxine - once supremely confident and ravenous in her pursuit of applause - is now ailing and alone. As her world narrows, her hunger for just one more chance to secure her legacy grows.

Lyrical and nuanced, Nashville Chrome hits all the right notes with its vivid evocation of an era in American music, and its wrenching meditation on the complexities of fame and of one family.
