Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley is bringing a new country music musical to the stage this summer.
Kelley’s production company teamed up with Lively McCabe Entertainment to bring the stage production to Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Opening night is June 7th, and curtains will close on June 25th, 2022.
The musical’s score will feature chart-topping tracks penned by Florida Georgia Line, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Little Big Town, Old Dominion, Brooks & Dunn, Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, and many more. According to a press release, the musical “tells the story of disappearing small-town America as seen through the hopeful eyes of one of its youth, who ultimately discovers that her roots may take her a lot further than her dreams,” according to a press release.
Kelley recently revealed the star-studded rotating cast of the country-musical, “May We All,” includes Lainey Wilson, Danielle Bradbery, Lindsay Ell, Breland, LOCASH, Jamie O’Neal, Robyn Ottolini, Thomas Mac, Alana Springsteen, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Alexandra Kay, Sydney Sierota, Angie K, Scarlett Burke, Trent Harmon, Tigirlily, Raelynn, and Canaan Smith to play the character of “Bailey Stone.”
The character of Bailey Stone was intentionally created to bring in a different guest actor to the role at each performance in Nashville, Kelley and executive producer Michael Barra explained to Music Row.
“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,” Barra shared.
“Country music is storytelling, that is at the heart of most country music,” shared Brian Usifer, the Orchestrations, and Music Supervisor. “The sound of country music is so specific but varied at the same time. Different eras have different sounds. So, it is really important that “May We All” represents all of those as much as we possibly can. But, at the same time… music has to be theatrical,” he concluded in a social media video.
