“Country Hart met Juanita” is a road trip through the Southern States in search of the various identities and influences of country music. The 13 part series journeys through the country music capitals of the United States of America from backwater mountain music gigs in the Appalachians, Texan rodeos and Baptist Revivals in the Bible belt as Juanita discovers the sounds and roots of Country music, in most of its subgenres. The series starts its principal photography on 3 March 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Hosted by Juanita du Plessis, “The Platinum Princes of South Africa”, with 44 platinum awards under her belt and over 1.35 million record sales to date, this is going to be one of her biggest challenges.

Over the course of the series, Juanita will look at the different sounds of the types of country and their influences as she uses them to create a unique sound.

The show takes the viewer weekly on a cultural tour, through music, discovering the USA and its identity as Juanita performs and creates music with the locals.” Says Director, Brandon Oelofse. Following the popular reality format, the show uses challenges that Juanita must complete. that are aimed at understanding the culture of country music and the USA. These are used to give the audience a real taste of what the people, the area and the music is about.
