When Homer ruins a movie for everyone by revealing the ending, Marge yells at Homer, embarrasing him. Homer drives off to a pub out of town, where finds a country singer named Lurleen Lumpkin. Her song gets into Homer's head, and he goes back the next day to get a copy of it. They record a CD at a booth, where a guy offers to have it played on the radio. It becomes an instant hit, Homer becomes Lurleen's manager, much to Marge's displeasure. Lurleen starts to fall in love with Homer, and kisses him right before a big TV gig. But Homer turns her down because he loves his wife and kids. He returns home to make up with Marge, while Lurleen sings a song dedicated to Homer.
