May We All, the new musical from Floria Georgia Line member Brian Kelley‘s production company CuzBro Productions and Michael Barra’s Lively McCabe Entertainment, will world premiere in June 2022 in a special Nashville residency as part of Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Broadway at TPAC series. The production is being developed in partnership with BMG and will have a multi-week run at TPAC.
May We All is a story of disappearing small-town America as seen through the hopeful eyes of its youth. Jenna Coates, a fledgling country singer, reluctantly comes home after a rough start in Nashville, ultimately to discover that her roots may take her a lot further than her dreams. A celebration of America’s heartland, the musical features the music of Tim McGraw, Sara Evans, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, Shania Twain, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, John Denver, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, The Chicks, Old Dominion, Jessica Andrews, and LOCASH, among others. Two original songs co-written by Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of FGL are also featured in the score and will debut exclusively in the project.
“TPAC is looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the theater again, and we can’t wait to share all the new and uplifting arts experiences we have in store for you next year,” says Jennifer Turner, TPAC President and CEO. “We’re delighted to host the world premiere engagement of May We All in the summer of 2022. It’s the perfect opportunity for fans of musical theater and fans of country music to unite here in Music City for this special presentation before the launch of a national tour.”
The Nashville debut will also jumpstart a 2022/23 national tour of the musical. Following production delays in 2020 due to the pandemic, the previously announced developmental production of May We All at Playhouse on the Square in Memphis is now planning to proceed in Fall 2021.
“We’re so excited for May We All to be in residence in Nashville next summer,” says Lively McCabe Entertainment Executive Producer Michael Barra. “Music City followed by a coast-to-coast tour has been our goal for this show since day one, and the overwhelming response from country music fans has granted us the opportunity to achieve this milestone. We’re so grateful to Jennifer Turner and her first-rate team at TPAC for their support and partnership on this production.”
