Judy Crocker (Judy Canova), a hill-billy girl, strikes it rich when an oil company takes an option on her farm. She meets up with two confidence men, J. Huntington McMasters (Richard Lane) and Canada Brown (George McKay) and discovering she can sing, they sell her $3,000 worth of stock in a film called "Louisiana Hayride," which will star her. Arriving in Hollywood, Judy, her mother Maw Crocker (Minerva Urecal) and Jed Crocker (Matt Willis), her gun-totin' brother, find McMasters and Brown living in an expensive hotel. They try to get away but Judy and Jeb catch them. Judy tells them she wants to invest more money, and she agrees to pay them $3,000 a week. However, Judy doesn't know the name of the studio and she makes the rounds. A guard at one studio mistakes her as the singer who was being sent from the casting office and allows her to go in. She does the number and creates a great impression. "Louisiana Hayride" goes into production and, when it is finished, McMasters receives a generous offer for the distribution rights...but things start popping; They find that the plot of the film was stolen, the oil options payments will be stopped and the distributing offer is withdrawn. But not all is lost...the director of the picture in which Judy accidentally appeared signs her to a contract, and the police arrest McMasters and Brown for previous swindles.
