Carl the cowboy has lived on a farm in Iowa since he was three years old. One day, he was given a guitar by his father at the age of twenty. When he picked up the guitar, he immediately fell in love with the beautiful sound it would make. Everyday, Carl would practice in the fields of his farm near his horse, Epona. His devotion to his guitar and his desire to improve his skills increased everyday. He would dance and play until the sun went down. His dream was to save up enough money so he could leave the farm one day and perform in New York City. Carl, however, had to choose between his love for his guitar and his love for his home and his best horse.
