This unedited interview footage, taped by Dallas-based director Jim Ruddy for “Entertainment Tonight,” is of country music star George Strait, who talks about his role in the 1992 film, “Pure Country”, in which he stars. Strait plays Wyatt "Dusty" Chandler, a famous country musician, which he knows plenty about in his real life. In this interview, Strait talks about his foray into acting, developing the role of his character, how cowboys are appealing to audiences, and his experience on set. He also explains how he went about writing the soundtrack to this film, which he believes is his best album to date.
