FGL’s Brian Kelley and his production company CuzBro Productions, in partnership with Lively McCabe Entertainment, have unveiled their new country musical, May We All, is coming to Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center next summer.
The musical tells the story of Jenna Coates, a small-town girl whose big-city singing career is over before it even begins. Returning to the people and places of her past, she finds a path to the future. However, lot has changed in Harmony, Tennessee, since she left. To dig themselves out of their current crises, they’re going to need each other and music.
May We All features a score of fan-favorites from Brooks & Dunn, Chris Stapleton, Dolly Parton, Florida Georgia Line, Jessica Andrews, Johnny Cash, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Little Big Town, LoCash, Loretta Lynn, Miranda Lambert, Old Dominion, Sara Evans, Tim McGraw, The Chicks, and more. As part of the musical, two original songs co-written by FGL’s Kelley and Tyler Hubbard will debut in the production
“I’ve been dreaming and scheming on a musical for a while now, and for May We All to debut in Nashville next June is so surreal. It wouldn’t be a country music party without some special guests and surprises,” shares Kelley. “I’m thrilled to welcome my friends and fellow artists to the cast, and can’t wait to see what each one brings to the character of Bailey Stone.”
The multi-week event will feature a rotating lineup of country music guest artists who will step into the role of Bailey Stone, including Alana Springsteen, Alexandra Kay, Brealnd, Kelley, Canaan Smith, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Chris Ruediger, Cooper Alan, Danielle Bradbery, Jamie O’Neal, Lainey Wilson, Lindsay Ell, LoCash, Nick Fradiani, Scarlett Burke, Thomas Mac, Tigirlily, Trent Harmon, and many more.
Executive Producer Michael Barra adds, “From the very beginning, we created the role of Bailey Stone to be played by a different guest artist at every performance in Nashville. We’re already blown away by the caliber of talent and are looking forward to making these special guest moments fun for both the artist and the audience.”
“We are thrilled to host the world premiere of May We All at Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville next summer, and to be a part of this exciting collaboration,” says Jennifer Turner, TPAC President and CEO. “In Nashville, you never know who is going to appear on the many stages around town. With this impressive list of guest artists making each performance a one-of-kind experience, this engagement is no exception. It’s the perfect fit for Music City.”
Making its world premiere on June 7–July 17, 2022, tickets for the performances go on sale to the general public beginning at 10 a.m. CT on Oct. 29.
