Country bumpkin Homer Higgins is listening to his favorite radio show when he is surprised to hear crooner Don Gray singing the song that he submitted to the radio star. Homer is more than miffed when Gray claims to have written the tune himself. Borrowing money, he travels to New York to confront Gray. Gangsters move in on Gray and take control of the hit tunes' publishing rights. Homer is bought off for $200 while the song brings in tens of thousands. Homer is forced to churn out hits for a pittance while the mob cleans up. Beautiful singer Barbara Holbrook befriends Homer, who has no idea he is being exploited, determined to find a way get him out of the contract.
