Colton Gentry’s Third Act is a second chances story with all.the.feels!!! It’s a dual timeline told from the past when Colton was is in high school with his high school sweetheart Luann and then present day when Colton ends up back in his hometown and crosses paths again with Luann.

He reaches the peak becoming both a country megastar and married to one, but when he looses his best friend at a mass shooting during a music festival, he goes off the rails. He starts drinking heavily and one night during a preformance he tells everyone just what he thinks about gun control. Quickly he looses more than just his friend, getting fired by his label and finding out his marriage is over because his wife found someone else.

With nothing else he heads back home.
