T. J. Hopkins, the head of a New York recording company, sends his talent scout Lorraine Royle to Memphis to sign a singing trio there. When her plane is forced to land in the backwoods of Tennessee, Lorraine spends the night at a farmhouse, where she hears Jennie Higgins sing folk songs and play the zither. Believing that Jennie could be the next singing sensation, Lorraine cancels her trip to Memphis and returns to New York with Jennie. Hopkins is furious because Lorraine has ignored his orders and refuses to audition Jennie. Angered by Hopkins’ treatment of Lorraine, record company employees Johnny Evans and Buddy Butterfield quit their jobs to form a new label with her. Needing a big-name performer to boost their initial record, Lorraine asks her ex-husband, singer Ray Royle, to arrange for Jennie to sing at the nightclub where he and band leader Gene Krupa are starring. After Jennie’s sensational debut, she and Johnny discover that they have fallen in love. Lorraine soon realizes that she still loves Ray, and all ends happily when he asks her to return as his wife.
