Carly Speranza has always dreamed of singing the lead in the very famous Opera Carmen. When she wins the role, however, she quickly learns that there’s been a terrible misunderstanding. It’s not Carmen . . . it’s the Car Men, a Country-Western group. But Carly promised to be there, and she keeps her promise.
