Starring Marisa Kirby and Jewell Noel, wash your cares away with this engaging jukebox musical full of country favorites from Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, Patsy Cline and more!
When Lana Mae Hopkins, owner and proprietress of the Wishy Washy Washateria, hires Katie, they soon find themselves up to their elbows in soap, suds, and cheatin’ hearts. Watch these two country angels join forces to transform the laundromat into a bootscootin’ honky-tonk and exact a touch of revenge against those that done ‘em wrong.
