Corey Crowder to Open for Josh Kelley at August Concert
(Augusta, Ga. – Aug 3, 2010) – Georgia native Corey Crowder will join Josh Kelley for a special benefit concert in Augusta on Aug. 28. Josh, a singer/songwriter best known for his top five hit Amazing, will be debuting songs from his upcoming country album for his hometown at the Bell Auditorium concert.
The Young Philanthropist concert will benefit the John W. Kelley, M.D., Cardiovascular Endowment, which was established to honor Josh’s father, who retired from the Augusta medical community in March 2006 after practicing cardiology in the CSRA for 28 years. The endowment will be used to further education and training for cardiac and vascular students as well as nurses and technologists within University Hospital’s Heart & Vascular Institute.
Josh Kelley grew up in Augusta and discovered his musical talents at age 11, when he started a band with his younger brother, Charles (now of the Grammy Award-winning country trio Lady Antebellum). Josh recently joined the Universal Music Group Nashville family, signing with MCA Nashville in September 2009. His first country album is due out later this year and is expected to release his debut single, Georgia Clay, in August.
Opening for Josh will be singer/songwriter Corey Crowder, whose music is a unique blend of folk, jazz and country. Corey is on tour promoting his new album, Lost & Found – a mixture of rock, soul and country that showcases his broad musical talent and deep Southern roots.
Tickets are on sales at the Augusta Entertainment Complex.
