Khan continues to press Connie to play classical music with her violin and live out his dream of becoming a famous concert violinist. She gets resentful however, and begins playing bluegrass with Hank and the boys. Bluegrass helps Connie re-find her love of violin and Hank, Dale, Boomhauer and Connie form a bluegrass band. When they see a contest is taking place in Branson, MO., Hank books them a spot.
In Branson, Hank becomes more like Kahn and pressures Connie into practicing all the time. Because of the pressure, Connie quits the band and Bobby goes with her. Bobby is also disenfranchised when Hank doesn't think his Yakov Smirnoff jokes are funny. Kahn figures out that Connie is in Branson and not in Ft. Worth where she's supposed to be auditioning for a music school. He and Hank go after Connie and Bobby and both realize that they've been too hard on their kids and should let them pursue their own hopes and dreams.
