Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley), an aspiring country singer and single mother of two from Glasgow, is released after a year in prison for attempted drug smuggling after throwing a package of heroin over the wall into HM Prison Cornton Vale despite claiming that she did not know what was in the package. She learns that she has lost her longstanding job in the house band at Glasgow's Grand Ole Opry, as the manager refuses to employ a convicted criminal. Rose-Lynn's mother, Marion (Julie Walters), who has been caring for Rose-Lynn's young children, encourages her to give up her music dream to focus on more practical careers and taking care of her family.
Rose-Lynn takes a cleaning job for Susannah's large house. Susannah's children overhear Rose-Lynn singing while she is cleaning and inform their mother, who confides that she is also a country music fan. Rose-Lynn asks Susannah (Sophie Okonedo) for money to travel to Nashville and try to make it as a musician, but Susannah declines. However, she does get in contact with BBC Radio presenter, Bob Harris, and sends him a recording of Rose-Lynn's singing; he offers to meet with her if she will come to London. Rose-Lynn appears before a judge to ask him to lift her probationary 7pm to 7am curfew so she can travel, and he agrees. She travels by train to London and sits in on a live performance by the visiting Ashley McBryde. Harris encourages her to keep performing and figure out what she has to say so she can start writing her own songs.
Susannah offers Rose-Lynn a performing gig at her upcoming house party, where she intends to ask her guests to contribute to Rose-Lynn's Nashville fund in lieu of gifts. Rose-Lynn asks Marion to watch the children in the week leading up to the party so she can rehearse, but Marion declines to cancel her holiday plans, so she is forced to shuttle her kids around to various friends who agree to watch them. The day before the performance, Susannah's husband gets Rose-Lynn alone and tells her he knows about her criminal conviction and she is to stop working for them after her performance.
