Yup: A Garth Brooks Lifetime Movie

Because Lifetime original movies are about people bein’ done wrong and directed toward simpletons, it only makes sense that a country song should provide the plot line for one. Enter ’90s country icon Garth Brooks, who is still around and looking like a fat Kevin Costner. Correction: a fatter Kevin Costner.

A Garth Brooks song is becoming a two-hour Lifetime telefilm. Inspired by the country singer’s No. 1 hit “Unanswered Prayers,” Lifetime has cast Samantha Mathis and Eric Close in the lead roles. The film centers on a man (Close) happily married to his wife (Mathis) but who must make a tough choice when his high school crush (Madchen Amick) comes to town. [THR]

In a related story, I just took a dump inspired by “The Thunder Rolls.”
