Perry competes against other local acts, including the only other musical act, The Woodville Trio, and wins with a rock and roll number on his ukulele. He's signed by Grunt Records, and his first single "My Heart Is a Pig Pen" sells a million copies. He becomes known as "The Barn Yard Swoonsation". Things are going great with tours and TV and radio appearances when suddenly, for no reason whatsoever, he loses his ability to sing.
Doctors can't help and Perry is in the dumps, when out of the blue his friends and neighbors back in Woodville invite him home for a celebration because they are so proud of their native son.
