This movie tells the intersecting stories of various people connected to the music business in Nashville. Barbara Jean is the reigning queen of Nashville but is near collapse. Linnea and Delbert Reese have a shaky marriage and 2 deaf children. Opal is a British journalist touring the area. These and other stories come together in a dramatic climax.

I love how Altman's films focus on character stories, rather than classic plots and this is very much the case in Nashville.
Though the convoluted combinations of characters and narratives does mean that the film can get a little hard to follow (to the point where I'm sure I'll need another viewing or two to truly soak it all in), the fact that it's intriguing enough to warrant extra viewings is definitely one of many points in the film's favour.
Keith Carradine plays a boozing womanizing singer who finds himself at the apex of a romantic quadrangle that provides one of the most entertaining scenes in the film where Carradine is onstage singing a song in a club and has four different women in the audience thinking he is singing especially to her...just fabulous.
