"May We All: A New Country Musical" is the story of Jenna Coates, a small-town girl whose big-city singing career is over before it even begins, and how she returns to the people and the places of her past to find a path to the future. But going home is never easy. A lot has changed in Harmony, Tenn. since Jenna left and not necessarily for the better. If Jenna and her hometown are going to dig themselves out of their current crises, they're going to need each other. And they're going to need music.

The show includes songs 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, Reba McEntire, Runaway June, Sara Evans, Tim McGraw and Zac Brown Band. Debuting exclusively as part of the musical are two original songs co-written by FGL's Kelley and Tyler Hubbard.

The book is by Troy Britton Johnson, Todd Johnson and Eric Pfeffinger, with arrangements and orchestrations by Brian Usifer, choreography by William Carlos Angulo, and is directed by Shelley Butler. Joining the creative team is Tim Mackabee (Scenic Design), Lex Liang (Costume Design), Zach Blane (Lighting Design), Cody Spencer (Sound Design), Geoffrey Ko (Music Director), and Casting by Eisenberg / Beans Casting (Daryl Eisenberg, CSA, Ally Beans, CSA). Casting for the musical will also be announced in the near future.
