WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Somewhere With You is a country-rock musical with music by country song writer JT Harding and features many of his hit songs made famous by Kenny Chesney, Uncle Kracker, Jake Owen, and JTX (including Chesney's number one song "Somewhere with You" and Uncle Kracker's "Smile"). This compellingly gritty, coming-of-age love story centers around a new generation of Southerners growing up in the early 2000s, confronted by the methamphetamine epidemic, the war in Iraq, and other post-9/11 challenges in the rural South.
