Synopsis

Baby Boy Watkins, a piano-playing combination of Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard and Elvis, gets his big break playing the Nashville Jubilee. His manager, Dirty Dawkins, has set up his visit to the Nashville Jubilee followed immediately by a sold-out performance at the World's Fair in New Orleans. However, Baby Boy's sister, Jollene, shows up backstage at the Nashville Jubilee imploring Baby Boy to return home with her to help with their ailing mother. "Rockabilly Baby" is a roller coaster ride of emotions, chock full of all original rockabilly music. It was the birth of what we call today, rock 'n' roll, set to the tune of a heart-wrenching story. It was the Rockabilly Era. When it was over, nothing was ever quite the same.
