COREY SMITH TO PERFORM AT PARAMOUNT BRISTOL ON NOV. 11
Bristol, TN –
American singer-songwriter and guitarist Corey Smith is coming to Paramount Bristol as part of his Great Wide Underground Tour.
In a genre whose biggest artists tend to be those signed to major label deals, Corey Smith is the exception — an indie-minded country singer who’s spent the past decade breaking rules and selling records. – Rolling Stone
The way Corey Smith sees it he owes a debt to his fans. And it’s one he is determined to repay with his tenth album “While the Getting is Good.” The project, released on Sugar Hill Records, marks the first time that the wildly popular touring artist, who has produced all of his past efforts, has turned over the reins to a bona fide country music producer in Keith Stegall.
“While the Gettin’ Is Good” was written entirely by Corey. As such, it’s a deeply personal album, one that explores themes of love, hometown pride and even personal discovery. The result is Smith’s most ambitious record yet, as well as a return on the investment made by the fans who have supported him since his first album in 2003.
Paramount Bristol’s newest sponsor, Bristol Station Brews & Taproom, is generously underwriting this show. The downtown Bristol brewery is home to multiple award-winning craft beers. “I’m really excited to support Paramount Bristol,” said Ken Monyak, owner and brew master at Bristol Station. “Nothing goes better with an evening of great music than good company and handcrafted brews.”
Details: November 11, at 8:00 pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm.
Tickets are available online here or through the box office
(423-274-8920) Tuesday – Friday from noon to 6:00 pm.
