A Cowgirl’s Song is a 2022 family movie featuring country music.

Hailey Mays (Savannah May) is the main protagonist of A Cowgirl’s Song, along with her younger sister Brooke Mays (Darci Lynne Farmer). She is a singer who plays country music on her guitar. Country music is a genre of music that fits the setting, topics, and themes of A Cowgirl’s Song, as the setting takes place in a rural environment.

The events before the opening scene show Hailey and Brooke’s family’s hard life. Hailey and Brooke believe their father is wrongly accused and try to raise enough money for his bail out of prison. Their grandmother is devastated after her husband’s death. The family’s hard life serves as the film’s catalyst.
