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.
