Christmas in the Smokies is a Christmas movie that debuted on INSP on November 29, 2015.
"Christmas in the Smokies" tells the story of Shelby Haygood, a headstrong woman (Lancaster), who along with her loving and supportive parents (Corbin, and Rebecca Koon) finds herself on the verge of losing her family’s historic berry farm to an impending retail expansion. Over one eventful holiday season, she tries every avenue possible to save the farm, and her last hope is to throw a Christmas concert fundraiser, headlined by her former love, Mason Wyatt, a ne’er do well country music superstar with a track record of consistently disappointing Shelby. As the day of the concert approaches, they all must learn the value of family, faith, community and forgiveness before time runs out.
