Sixth grader Tenney Grant loves playing her guitar and writing her own lyrics. She volunteers to be on the Jamboree committee working with senior citizens and decides to sign up to be a performer. A music scout invites Tenney to perform at a music showcase where record labels look for up-and-coming talent. After much debate, Tenney's parents allow her to perform her original piece at the showcase, which she struggles through and ends up disappointed that she doesn't get signed to a record deal. Her senior citizen partner for the Jamboree turns out to be a country music legend and encourages Tenney to get back onstage, where the record producer sees Tenney knock it out of the park and decides to take her under his wing.
