COUNTRY SENSATION GEORGE STRAIT BRINGS 'PURE COUNTRY' EXCITEMENT TO 'CROOK AND CHASE'; LESLEY ANN WARREN, ISABEL GLASSER ON PROGRAM
 NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Chart-topping country artist George Strait will visit the set of Crook and Chase on Tuesday, Oct. 20 just prior to making his feature film debut in "Pure Country," which will celebrate its world premiere that evening in Nashville. Strait's co-stars Lesley Ann Warren and Isabel Glasser will join him on the Crook and Chase set. Hosted by Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase, the 60-minute live weekday magazine series is telecast at 8 p.m. (repeats on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 1 p.m.; all times Eastern) on TNN: The Nashville Network.
 The entire program will pay tribute to Strait's success as a country artist and his exciting new role as leading man in "Pure Country," a warm romantic drama. Crook and Chase will also include a taped segment by superstar Garth Brooks, who reflects upon Strait's influence on his music.
 Directed by Christopher Cain and produced by Jerry Weintraub, the Warner Bros. film is the compelling tale of Dusty, a country singer whose huge success finds him wrestling with two divergent roles -- the simplicity of his down-home roots and life in the fast lane of country music. Dusty resolves his dilemma by quitting in mid-career to return to his native Texas to work on a ranch.
 Strait performs ten songs on the movie soundtrack which, after just three weeks, has reached the Top 10 on the Billboard country chart. In addition to performing in the film, Strait displays his real-life talents for riding and roping.
 Since arriving in Nashville in 1981, Strait has grown from a country music innovator to become a major influence and idol. His many awards include the 1989 and 1990 Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year. The "George Strait Live" concert video became the first video of any genre to be certified gold and is now nearing double platinum.
