COUNTRY HEARTS CHRISTMAS is a family drama on UPtv about a musical, ranch owning family. The father, Scott “Bones” Jameson, is looking forward to the family being back home for Christmas Eve services at his church. However, his two older daughters, Tori and June, have a budding musical career in Nashville, where they get a chance to sing live on a Christmas Eve TV program. Meanwhile, June’s husband is in trouble with a shady loan outfit, which loaned him some money for his struggling winery.
COUNTRY HEARTS CHRISTMAS is a compelling, moving drama. The script builds nicely to strong dramatic moments and a heartwarming ending. The songs and performances by the daughters in the movie are very well done. They include three spiritually uplifting Christmas carols, including “Silent Night” and “Away in a Manger.” COUNTRY HEARTS CHRISTMAS has a strong Christian, morally uplifting worldview putting faith and family first. There are some light references to a romantic triangle between three unmarried adults, to keeping secrets from family members and to recovering from past alcohol problems. So, caution is advised for younger children.

COUNTRY HEARTS CHRISTMAS is a family drama on UPtv about a musical, ranch owning family who run into some dramatic snags trying to come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration at church. COUNTRY HEARTS CHRISTMAS is a compelling, moving drama about putting faith and family first, with many strong Christian references including three Christmas carols, but it has light references to a romantic triangle, keeping secrets from family members and recovering from alcohol problems.
The movie opens with Tori and June Jameson recording the Christmas carol “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.” After finishing the song, they learn that a romantic Christmas song they just recorded is getting some radio airplay in Nashville. So much so, that they’re offered a spot on the annual live show in Nashville, “Bobby’s Country Christmas Eve.” Reluctantly, they agree to perform on the live show, even though their dad expects them to attend the family’s annual Christmas Eve services at church.
However, how can they break the news to their father? And, how is June going to break the news to her husband, Justin, who also wants her home for Christmas Eve?
Another complication occurs when Justin gets in trouble with a loan shark outfit he used to help with the burgeoning expenses of his new winery startup. He’s been keeping the winery’s financial woes from June and her father when they ask how things are going.
