By 1984 Sylvester Stallone was one of the biggest box office draws in the world, thanks to the success of his ‘Rocky’ franchise and ‘First Blood,’ the first of a series of hit Rambo movies. Dolly Parton was not only one of country music’s hottest stars, she’d broken into films with ’9 to 5′ and ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.’ What could be better than pairing the two superstars on the big screen in a film based on the Glen Campbell hit, ‘Rhinestone Cowboy‘?
As it turned out, lots of things could be better. The film features Parton as a country singer who’s stuck in a contract with a sleazy night club owner in New York. She bets him that she can turn Stallone’s character — an obnoxious NYC cab driver named Nick Martinelli — into a country singer in two weeks flat. If she wins, she’s released from her contract, but if she loses, it’s extended five more years.
To say that Stallone is woefully miscast would be putting it mildly, and the resulting film was a box office bomb. It was also universally panned by critics, and earned a total of nine Golden Raspberry nominations, including Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Musical Score. It won two of them; Worst Actor (Stallone), and Worst Original Song for ‘Drinkenstein,’ which he performs in the clip above.
The film wasn’t all bad for Parton; she scored two hits singles — ‘Tennessee Homesick Blues’ and ‘God Won’t Get You’ — from the soundtrack.

Congratulations to all the Independent Artists who made it to our, Wildhorse Country Download Chart for January 2015. If you are featured on this chart then your songs have been downloaded hundreds of times to qualify for a position on this chart show. Our download chart show is unique and a one of a kind chart show, as all songs are positioned on this chart strictly on the amount of downloads each song gets on Wildhorse Entertainment, and, this month we included the Airplay Direct downloads by DJ’s worldwide during the last 30 days.
Chris Loid has taken his time to finally move into the #1 slot. We were not even sure if he would make as he was stuck in Top3 for as many months, but all his efforts and patients have finally paid off and now he is at #1. This with a song written by Ed Dailey called “She Loves A Memory More than Me” It helps to call on your fans for help and Chris Loid fans sure came through for him, that should make him feel TEN FEET TALL.
[#2] “Tattoo Billy” takes a step down to the #2 spot this month with their huge former #1 hit “Give Me A Heart” a beautiful ballade performed wonderfully by Tattoo Billy. We are all still trying to come to terms with the death of Hurstel the lead singer of the band he is missed by many.
[#3] Another song that was featured on ‘Worldwide Country Discovery One”, moves up one position to the #4 spot. It’s Wayne Jacobs with his very emotional, “In Cold Blood” This song is doing really well for Wayne who is one of the UK top Independent Country Artists.
[#4] One of the greatest independent Country Superstars today, T. Jae Christian makes his first appearance on the Top 5 with a beautiful duet with Mary lee, called “Ain’t We Sad Today” coming in at #4.

I-the Sovereign Lord-am your Strength. You are keenly aware of your weakness. You know that your strength is insufficient to handle the many challenges you face. Though this feels uncomfortable, it is actually a very blessed place to be. Awareness of your neediness can help you keep turning to Me, letting Me supply all your need according to My riches in Glory.
When your energy is running low, connect with Me-your Strength. Sometimes I pour abundant energy into you as you spend time in My Presence. At other times I energize you only bit by bit, giving you just enough strength to keep moving slowly forward. Although the abundant provision is more dramatic and satisfying, do not be discouraged when I choose to give you strength sufficient only for the moment. This may be My way of keeping you ever so close to Me on your life-path, leaning on Me. This closeness helps you hear My whispers-telling you of My delight in you. To hear these whispers clearly, you must trust that I, the Sovereign Lord, am in charge of your life and that your journey-though difficult-is full of blessing.
The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. -Habakkuk 3:19
“My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:19 nkjv”
Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary. Ascribe to the Lord, O families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. -Psalm 96:6-7
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.
