Fickman will be working with Lively McCabe Entertainment and CuzBro Productions (founded by Kelley). The director has also worked on multiple musicals including a stage adaptation of Heathers and tells Music Row he can't wait to work on this film.

"Growing up in Texas, loving country music, and being a massive Florida Georgia Line fan, it is a dream come true to be joining the May We All creative team. The script uses powerful, heartwarming songs from some of country music's most celebrated artists to examine the complexities of how our hometowns shape and mold our hopes and aspirations. I can't wait for the world to join us on this uplifting, musical journey."

May We All follows country singer Jenna Coates who returns back to her small hometown after pursuing a career in Nashville. She'll learn to appreciate her roots and embrace where she came from. According to a press release, it's "a story of disappearing small-town America as seen through the hopeful eyes of its youth."

The musical shares the same name as the song "May We All," written for FGL (ft Tim McGraw) by Rodney Clawson and Jamie Moore for their third studio album, Dig Your Roots. Take a look at the lyrics below.

"May We All" Lyrics

May we all get to grow up in a red, white, and blue little town
Get a won't-start, hand-me-down Ford to try to fix up
With some part time cash from driving a tractor
Find a sweet little thang, wears your ball cap backwards
Kinda place you can't wait to leave but nobody does
'Cause you miss it too much
May we all know that nothing ain't cool 'til you wear the new off
The sound of a quarter rollin' down a jukebox
Play the Travis Tritt right above the 2Pac
'Fore you get lost down some road
Slow rolling with the top off the back of a Bronco
Buy a cold sixer with a cashed in lotto
She's smilin' with her hair blowing out the window
Where you 'bout to go?
Yeah, you learn to fly and if you can't then you just free-fall
May we all
May we all get to see those fields of green turn gold
Watch a marching band play with the harvest moon coming up
And know that fifteen minutes of famous
Ain't gonna be what makes us or breaks us but
We'll all be watching the TV the day that it comes
May we all know that nothing ain't cool 'til you wear the new off
The sound of a quarter rollin' down a jukebox
Play the Travis Tritt right above the 2Pac
'Fore you get lost down some road
Slow rolling with the top off the back of a Bronco
Buy a cold sixer with a cashed in lotto
She's smilin' with her hair blowing out the window
Where you 'bout to go?
Yeah, you learn to fly and if you can't then you just free-fall
May we all
May we all do a little bit better than the first time
Learn a little something from the worst times
Get a little stronger from the hurt times
May we all get to have a chance to ride the fast one
Walk away wiser when we crashed one
Keep hoping that the best one is the last one
Yeah, you learn to fly and if you can't then you just free-fall
May we all
May we all
May we all
May we all
May we all (get to have a chance to ride the fast one)
May we all (walk away wiser when we crashed one)
May we all (keep hoping that the best one is the last one)
May we all (yeah the last one)
Yeah, you learn to fly and if you can't then you just free-fall
