1May We All– TPAC

Friday-Sunday, June 17-19, 7:30 pm

TPAC, 505 Deaderick Street, Nashville

The musical May We All just had its opening night this week and will run until July. It’s the story of a small-town girl who sets her sights on a country music career in Nashville. In the end, it’s her hometown that brings her a big opportunity. While loyal country music fans might not find the classic country songs easily recognizable, it’s comparable to thinking Broadway actors could rap in Hamilton when compared to artists like Drake. The refreshing moment is that country artists will make guest appearances. I was able to see Lainey Wilson who performed one song, if only she could’ve had another song, the audience was craving more. Put it on your list, definitely worth seeing this heart-warming story of small-town coming together and supporting each other.
