Country Rockers is the film footage of a 1984 concert, edited and arranged as a full length movie in 2008. In 1982, several vocal artists, including The Osmands, began to change their sound, moving fluidly between pop and country. Two years later they joined with a group of other notable country performers to put on a major concert at Cheyenne Saloon and Opera House in Orlando, FL, for TNN's Church Street Station series. The concert features popular country artists performing their big hits, and historic rock numbers, in a style that is uniquely American. Performances include Billy Crash Craddock performing Heart of Rock and Roll, Merl Haggard singing Folsom Prison Blues, Jerry Lee Lewis performing Great Balls of Fire and others. Other performing artists featured in the film include: The Osmands, the Bellamy Brothers, Danny Davis and The Nashville Brass, Curtis Young and The Jordanaires. These performances set the stage for today's successful cross-over artists.
