Fresh off his debut at the Grand Ole Opry, country singer John King returns home for a Nov. 2 concert at Piedmont College called “Homegrown.”
King’s debut single, “Tonight, Tonight,” has reached the Top 40 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart. The Demorest native formed his first band at age 15 and honed his musical skills in Athens. In 2013, he signed with Black River Entertainment out of Nashville.
Opening for King at the Arrendale Amphitheater will be another homegrown band, Georgia Street. The new band is made up of Piedmont College students Logan Pethel and Preston Graham with area musicians Trey Brantley, Tahd Adams and Maison Clouatre. The group plays a variety of rock, country, and Christian music.
The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. at 359 College Drive in Demorest.
Tickets are $12 and available at www.piedmont.edu/homegrown. They will be $15 at the door. Admission for Piedmont students, faculty and staff is $5.
Proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Northeast Georgia.
The concert is being organized by Piedmont students Chris Goershel and Sumner Gantz as part of a project for their senior capstones in business administration.
