JAMES ROBERT WEBB IS “GETTIN’ SOMEWHERE” WITH NEW SINGLE – HOMETOWN RENAMED IN HIS HONOR, FANS INVITED TO BE IN UPCOMING MUSIC VIDEO
Country singer James Robert Webb is definitely getting
somewhere with his new single “Now We’re Gettin’ Somewhere.” The
Oklahoma native performed the new song on Good Morning Tulsa Friday,
Oct. 12 before celebrating the single release at The Flying Tee the
following night. Webb’s hometown of Kellyville, Oklahoma temporarily
renamed itself “Somewhere, Oklahoma” in honor of the single release.
James Robert Webb called the honorary name change of the Northeast
Oklahoma town a testament to the power of small towns and hometown
pride, noting the town’s importance in his early beginnings. “Even when I
was just starting out, they were so supportive of my dream,” Webb says.
“I hope I’ll be able to give back a fraction of what I’ve received and
inspire the younger generation coming up — I hope everyone takes it to
heart that they come from ‘Somewhere’ and you really can do anything you
set your mind to.”
Webb’s new single is currently impacting country radio and is the first
from his upcoming unnamed 2019 album. An upbeat toe-tapper about young
love, “Now We’re Gettin’ Somewhere” evokes the best of 90s country while
staying sonically current. Hit songwriters Shawn Camp, Taylor Dunn and
Wynn Varble penned the tune, while the legendary Buddy Cannon (Kenny Chesney, Willie Nelson) produced.
Following up on the heels of a successful single release show, Webb is
offering fans a chance to be in the song’s upcoming music video. Webb
will film the video on Friday, November 9th at the Admiral
Twin in Tulsa and will ask fans to participate in the shoot. Fans can
find more information at James Robert Webb’s official website and on his twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages.
