Track 29 – Chattanooga Choo Choo Campus – Chattanooga, TN 37402
Friday, August 30 Doors: 8:00pm Show: 9:00pm Corey Smith was named one of country music’s hottest new artists by Country Weekly and Music Row Magazine and was featured on the cover of Pollstar as a Hotstar Top Artist. He has hundreds of sold-out performances under his belt and a growing, dedicated fan-base whose passion for Corey’s music has led to some of the music industry’s leading professionals shaking their heads in astonishment at his rise as a touring sensation.
Corey has the ability to relate to crowds like few other modern-day live acts – in one moment singing frankly of wild days spent partying, followed by showcasing his wisdom with songs that touch on much deeper issues of life. In 2011 Corey released his album The Broken Record which features refreshing remakes of longtime fan favorites “Twenty-One,” “Maybe Next Year,” and “If I Could Do It Again” along with new tunes like “I Love Everyone,” “Broken Record,” and “Silly.” For more information, free music, and a full list of upcoming tour dates, please visit www.coreysmith.com.
Rhythm & Brews – Chattanooga, TN
CHANNING WILSON BAND
Fri August 30, 2013 at 9:30 PM
LEAD SINGER OF THE ROUNDERS, AWARD WINNING SONG WRITER IN NASHVILLE, CHANNING RETURNS WITH OLD AND NEW SONGS AND A KICK ASS COUNTRY BAND.
“God could you throw this dog a bone. Let me turn the corner and be home. I’m tired of being on this road alone.” Real lyrics are what Channing Wilson is all about.
From a small town in Northwest Georgia, Channing learned about real life American good times and hardships. He’s not afraid to tell you about it either. From his songs like “Poor Man’s Cocaine” referring to methamphetamines taking over rural America, to songs like “Crazy Over You” which is a throwback love song to the era of Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, Channing’s voice along with his lyrics stand alone in a time of mass produced “throwaway” singers and songwriters.
Free Concerts at the Nightfall Series
MILLER PLAZA (Chattanooga TN) – “NightFall Series” with Screaming Orphans / Rigoletto, 7pm
Screaming Orphans 7 pm
We’re a pop-rock band and are four fun, high-spirited, musically-obsessed sisters from Ireland.
Our sound has been compared to the Bangles and the Cranberries and our musical influences range from the Beatles, R.E.M., Indigo Girls, Abba, to traditional Irish music.
We’re excited to share our musical journey with you and hope to meet you at one of our live shows!
Rigoletto 8 pm
Just two hours from the Music City, Rigoletto is creating a culture of their own. Everything from making records above a coffee shop to packing out the local brewery, one of Rigoletto’s biggest desires is to create a conducive artistic community that celebrates hard work and creativity. Whether that be in Rigoletto’s hometown of Chattanooga or anywhere across the US, a Rigoletto show is not something to be missed.
Rigoletto has been writing and recording together since September of 2011. After self-releasing their debut full length, ‘Delusions of Grandeur’, they were signed to Detroit-based record label, South Division Records. Look for the label’s release of the deluxe version of ‘Delusions of Grandeur’ on vinyl this August. Rigoletto also plans on touring heavily in the fall as well as preparing for their next release with South Division.
At the Foundry in the Chattanoogan Hotel is Scenic City Soul Revue – a Chattanooga, Tennessee based Variety Party Band – Music for All Occasions –
Playing Your Favorite Soul, Motown, R&B, Classic Rock, Funk, Disco and more
