Watch & Listen
Corey Smith was recently named by Country Weekly and Music Row Magazine as one of country music's hottest new artists. 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 seemingly rapid rise as a touring sensation. Corey is equipped with his acoustic guitar and sings frankly of wild days on the party scene; but he's also a wise philosopher, speaking wisdom about life in his lyrics that has the ability to relate to crowds like few other modern-day live acts. Signed to Average Joe's Entertainment in Nashville, Tennessee, Corey is poised to make waves at country radio with his second single, "Maybe Next Year," from his latest release The Broken Record.

Connor Christian & Southern Gothic
Equal parts modern troubadours, back road poets and outlaw rockers, Connor Christian & Southern Gothic create gritty, soulful songs of experience, revealing solace in hardship, hope in destitution, and a dustbowl sensibility. Their powerful music draws on influences ranging from Ryan Adams, G. Love, and Counting Crows to The Band and Tumbleweed Connection-era Elton John, and makes a heartfelt statement found at the crossroads of Roots Rock, Americana and Country Music.
Connor left home at the age of 14 and forged a path of personal and musical discovery that took him to Indonesia, South Korea, France, Belgium, Singapore, and beyond. It was in these places that Connor cultivated his deeply felt views on American life and found strength in the perspective he could deliver through song. “I try to be realistic,” says Connor. “But we live in a time where it is crucial to pay attention to what’s going on around us. If I can get people to stop and think about it for a minute, well that’s a pretty good start.”
CCSG's latest release, New Hometown (Part 1), is also their most personal. This eight song set of new material never strays far from the well-worn experiences of love, loss, music and, of course, drinking. Connor paints a picture of a wanderer's life and a uniquely American experience - a rock n' roll band with deep roots in the southern way of living and its musical tradition. Pianos, fiddles and guitars, mingle seamlessly with rich two, three, and four part harmonies along with a thundering rhythm section to create the kind of raw, heartfelt music that only CCSG can provide.
Employing the many talents of producer John Briglevich (Goo Goo Dolls, Edwin McCain) and guest appearances by Joey Huffman (Hank Williams Jr., Lynyrd Skynyrd), Mark Van Allen (the Internationals, Blueground Undergrass) and other special guests, New Hometown (Part 1) sparkles and sizzles, and takes the listener on an emotional ride not soon to be forgotten.
