Synopsis

Peggy sends unsolicited song lyrics to numerous country music stars, and receives a standard rejection letter from a lawyer working for Randy Travis. In typical Peggy fashion, she interprets this as praise and encouragement for her "songwriting career".

The Arlen United Methodist Church arranges a trip to the Fan Fair country music event in Nashville chosen randomly from a pool of suggestions. Peggy takes credit for the decision and hijacks control of the trip from the Assistant Pastor Larry, and annoys the entire congregation with her overbearing know-it-all behavior. She even insists that her letter received from Travis's lawyer makes her more knowledgeable of Nashville (where she has never been) than Larry (who went to divinity school there). Hank attempts to defend her, including her "invention" of Spa-Peggy and Meatballs, but is forced to admit to Pastor Larry that she is sometimes full of herself.

Before he leaves, Connie gives Bobby a Tony Danza-themed phone card to stay in contact during the trip. When Bobby attempts to call her, however, Kahn attempts to sabotage their relationship by telling Bobby that she is out with Chane Wasanasong. Luanne and Bobby meet Brooks and Dunn, who interrupt their autograph line to console Bobby about his issues with Kahn, with the Dunn admitting he also yanks the chain of his daughter's boyfriend. Bobby and Luanne attempt to reward the duo by taking them one of Peggy's Apple Brown Betty desserts, but accidentally drop it in manure from John Michael Montgomery's horse. When they present the dish, Kix Brooks eats the whole thing by himself, and soon becomes violently ill.

In the meantime, Hank and Peggy approach Randy Travis, but Peggy suddenly punches him in the face and accuses him of stealing the song she submitted, "Just the Way God Made Me". Hank doesn't believe Peggy, even after a meeting with Travis, where she explains the song is about being bullied for her large feet as a child. Travis dismisses it as writers coming up with similar material. Later, when Travis is on stage, he relates a story about the song, stealing her details about Montana, big feet, and substitute teaching, starting the song with obviously Boggle-related lyrics. As Hank was buying beer with Charlie Daniels at the time, he still does not believe her and lectures Peggy about her overly high opinion of herself, causing a rift between them.

Peggy recruits Dale, Bill and Boomhauer to toilet paper Randy's trailer, but accidentally knock it into the lake. Unbeknownst to them, Travis is trapped inside, as Dale mistook him for one of the Oak Ridge Boys while trying to establish an alibi. Hank jumps in and saves Travis. The country star was asleep when his trailer came loose and assumes it was a freak accident. Hank later confides his concerns about Peggy to Pastor Larry, who proceeds to warn the police, presenting her as a crazed stalker fan. Peggy attempts to apologize to Randy with her other brown betty, but the police believe it is poisoned due to Brooks's condition. Hank chooses to finally believe that Peggy is arrogant but not crazy, and volunteers to eat the dessert to prove it, and they make up.

On stage with Dunn, Randy Travis fills in and tells the story of how he was the one who saved Hank from the lake, prompting Hank to want to punch him this time.

Trivia

  • The ending proves Randy Travis steals anything he can to make himself look better. He stole Peggy's song, advice and alter how his rescue actually happens to make himself look like a hero.
  • Assistant Pastor Larry mentions going to divinity school in Nashville. If that is the case, he almost certainly went to Vanderbilt University Divinity School.
  • When he is given the phone card, he tells Connie, "Buddha broke the mold when he made you." No school of thought within Buddhism has ever taught that Buddha was a creator.

Errors

  • When Hank is shown calling to the bus driver, Boomhauer's eyes have white in them.
