James Robert Webb, ‘Now We’re Gettin’ Somewhere’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Singer-songwriter James Robert Webb is premiering the music video for his song "Now We're Gettin' Somewhere" exclusively for readers of The Boot. Press play above to watch the clip for this fun-loving tune about a budding, early-stages romance.
Directed by Jordan Price, the video for "Now We're Gettin' Somewhere" follows the song's lyrics, which detail the initial awkwardness of a first date. The clip is set at an iconic drive-in movie theater in Webb's home city of Tulsa, Okla., the Admiral Twin; it's the drive-in at which the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola film The Outsiders was filmed.
"I really had an awesome time working with Jordan to bring this video to life. To get to do it in my hometown and showcase all the talent there was a great feeling," Webb says. "Filming at the Admiral Twin, that’s been in these classic movies, added this feeling that I think comes through in this amazing video."
The song "Now We're Gettin' Somewhere" itself was produced by Nashville hitmaker Buddy Cannon, and was written "back in the day" by Shawn Camp, Taylor Dunn and Wynn Varble of Forerunner Music. "When Buddy and I started listening for songs for this album, this was the first one that grabbed me," Webb says.
"Shawn, Taylor and Wynn — these guys, to me, are some of the greats and it’s an honor to get to cut a song like this," he adds. "And to think it had been waiting for me still blows my mind."
"Now We're Gettin' Somewhere" is the lead single from Webb's forthcoming full-length album, currently titled Stories to Tell. Stay tuned for a release date.
