CELEBRATE GEORGIA'S OFFICIAL TROUT FESTIVAL IN THE TROUT CAPITAL OF GEORGIA!
The small town country boy from Dahlonega, Georgia, has recorded four CD’s and opened for some of the biggest names in country music including Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, LeAnn Rimes, Gary Alan, Darius Rucker, Zac Brown Band, Ronnie Milsap and Josh Turner. Kurt has a unique ability to captivate an audience – whether playing old favorites or his own songs. “I have always tried to stay in touch with the fact that a good song tells a story and most of my songs always do,” says Kurt.
Local Blue Ridge artist Shannon York covers many genres and decades, and when asked her favorite to play, her answer is always, “Whatever the crowd wants to hear!”
Music has always been an important part of her life, but Shannon didn't begin singing and playing the guitar until a few short years ago, after being inspired and encouraged by her family. Since then, she has opened for Travis Tritt and Confederate Railroad, and has performed with recording artist Bryan White.
