Just a few miles from Athens, the region's musical center, Corey Smith was born in Jefferson, Georgia. After writing songs and performing them at parties, Smith began to release his own self-produced albums since 2003. Singer-songwriter and tour artist did it differently for his 10th album, While the Gettin' is Good, with the help of Sugar Hill Records. The project will be the first time he lets go of his producing his own music and trusting bonafide country music producer, Keith Stegall, who has worked on chart-topping albums for Alan Jackson and Zac Brown Band. Smith has been able to focus solely on performing instead of being bombarded by the decision-making and drilling that comes with producing.

JADE JACKSON opening for COREY SMITH - click here to learn more

Within seconds after a guitar plays the intro to her song "Aden," Jade Jackson's voice, illuminated by experience, sings: "I grew up my father's daughter. He said don't take no shit from no one. You'll never see me cry …" And it's with that voice and those lyrics that imply a thousand stories, this singer/songwriter hints at what she is capable of crafting, of how many tears she can stir in recounting her rambles to the far corners of her imagination, further even than she has actually traveled. Released in May 2017 on Anti- Records, her album "Gilded" introduces her preternatural writing and raw, roots-rough sound. Surrounded by the close friends and gifted musicians that constitute her band, Jackson finds the perfect twist of phrase again and again, to express regret ("Let me walk over the bridges I've burned," on the mournful "Bridges"), foreboding ("He kept his shiny blue gun underneath his dash/Deep inside she knew their lives were gonna crash," a doomsday premonition set to a galloping beat and spaghetti-Western guitar on "Troubled End") and freedom ("I feel my boot heels sink in quicksand, baby, every time we kiss," she tells her baffled lover on "Motorcycle." "Ah, understand, boy, it's been fun, but my motorcycle only seats one.")
