Colton Gentry's third act, a novel, Jeff Zentner - hardcover

"Colton Gentry is riding high. His first hit in nearly a decade has caught fire, he's opening for country megastar Brant Lucas, and he's married to one of the hottest acts in the country. But he's hurting. Only a few weeks earlier, his best friend Duane was murdered onstage by a mass shooter at a country music festival. One night, with his trauma festering and Jim Beam flowing through his veins, Colton stands before a sold-out arena crowd of country music fans and offers his unfiltered opinion on guns. It goes over poorly. Immediately, his career and marriage implode. Left with few choices or funds, he leaves rehab and retreats to his rural Kentucky hometown to move back in with his mom. He's resigned himself to has-been-dom until a chance encounter at his town's new farm-to-table restaurant gives him a second shot at life: a job working in the kitchen with Luann, his first love, who has undergone her own reinvention. Told through perspectives alternating between his senior year of high school, his time coming up with Duane as hungry musicians in Nashville, and the present, COLTON GENTRY'S THIRD ACT is a story of coming home, undoing past heartbreaks, navigating grief, and a reminder that there are next acts in life, no matter how remote they may seem"--, Provided by publisher
