For 10 determined Texans, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it. The last one with their hand on a new Nissan hardbody truck wins it. Hands on a Hardbody is a country pop musical with music by Trey Anastasio of Phish and Amanda Green and a book by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright that centers on good music, good stories, and a beautiful Aztec red Nissan pick up truck.

Hands on a Hardbody is based on a true story and a legendary documentary by the same name. Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor and ambition, 10 contestants fight to keep at least one hand on a brand new "hardbody" Nissan truck in order to win it. In the hilarious, hard-fought contest, only one winner can drive away with the American dream.
