Ricky Stakonis- “Ricky” is a good looking young man in his twenties who has left his small town home in Oklahoma and moved to Nashville, Tennessee to get “discovered” as a talented songwriter at the world famous One Kiss Café. He was raised by a struggling single mother and extended family. But what he lacked in stability he more than made up for with his good looks and charisma. Success has always come easily for Ricky. He has a history of being a ladies man and using his wild imagination in his songwriting. Ricky can play guitar.

Sara Baker- “Sara” is from a small town in Ohio and has also moved to Nashville to pursue her songwriting dreams. Although she has already been in Nashville for nine months and is working as a waitress at the One Kiss Café, she is struggling in her music career and having a hard time being inspired to write new music. She is in her twenties and is attractive in a “girl next door” way. She is the oldest daughter in a farming family, active in every aspect of school music, theatre, and church activities as well. The “Truth” is her golden chalice in both her personal life and her songwriting.

Tootsie McCoy- “Tootsie” is a woman in her late forties to sixties and is the owner and bartender at the One Kiss Café. She traveled many years with her husband who was a rodeo cowboy. When he passed (may he rest in peace), she decided to pursue her second love, country music. She opened up this little music venue 16 years ago. Its success as a place for songwriters to get “discovered” has garnered it world-wide fame in songwriting circles. She is humorous, wise, charismatic, and is very much a surrogate mother-figure to both Ricky and Sara.

Carl “Midas”- “Midas” is a man in his late thirties to forties. He is an
Bradford Armani suit-wearing, smooth-talking city slicker from Los Angeles. He is the president of the Song Syndicate, the most successful music publisher in Nashville. He is motivated by greed and has little regard for country music or the songwriters who create it. His m/o is to sign as many talented songwriters as possible to “staff writing” deals in a “numbers game.” His theory is that if you crank out enough songs a few of them will make it big.
