Canadian-born country music star Tracy Jenkins creates quite a stir in Chicago when she arrives to fulfill her dream of playing at the famous Music Hall. When she receives a death threat from an anonymous fan, Tracy's manager George, decides to call in the Mounties for extra protection. Tracy thinks the threats are harmless, but George is worried. Fraser and Stan arrange to have a police officer act as a decoy at the Music Hall entrance. When the decoy is shot, Tracy realizes she's in serious trouble.
Thatcher is dismayed when Fraser offers Tracy sanctuary at the consulate. She doesn't want the consulate turned into a media circus. Turnbull, on the other hand, is overjoyed. He's a big Tracy fan. Dief is also totally smitten. Fraser is disconcerted to find that he's attracted to Tracy as well. Although she's rich and famous, she still yearns for the simple life she knew in northern Canada. When Tracy records a track at the renowned Checkmate Studios, she persuades Fraser to perform backup lyrics.
The investigation leads Fraser and Stan to Carver Dunn, an obsessed fan, but there's not much evidence to hold him. Huey and Duey are assigned to watch Carver, but while they're busy writing a song, Carver slips away. When Tracy's bodyguard Earl is killed, a videotape places Carver at the crime scene.
Meanwhile, back at the station, Turnbull tries to persuade Francesca that country music is the heartfelt poetry of the people. His eloquence temporarily captures her heart.
When Carver is unexpectedly cleared, Fraser and Stan must look for another suspect. Fraser discovers that Tracy's soon-to-be-ex-husband Dwight and her long-time manager George both have motives for murder. In the grand finale, Tracy decides to go ahead with her performance at the Music Hall, even though her life is in danger. Fraser and Stan race to find the killer before it's too late.
