LUMBERTON, NC – Join WKML and the Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater for a very special evening benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Stepping outside of one of the world’s most popular groups, Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley explores new territory with a raw sound that pushes his vocals into a lower, grittier key than what listeners have been hearing from him in a group setting. “The Driver” serves as the lead single from his upcoming first-ever solo release and was born in a ratty studio in the back of producer Paul Worley’s office. His unmatched perspective of hours spent on the road pursuing a life-long dream is present through his impeccable voice. In addition to his success as part of seven-time GRAMMY award-winning trio Lady Antebellum.

When Morgan was 12, inspired by seeing a Dierks Bentley concert, the youngster began playing out in public, and soon formed a band with local pickers. Morgan was 16 when he started visiting Nashville, Tennessee on a regular basis for songwriting sessions, and at 18, Morgan moved to the Music City to follow his dream.
From the one stoplight town of Salemburg, North Carolina to the spotlight: Music City, TN, Brittany McLamb brings to the table a unique blend of powerhouse vocals and a grassroots sound. The small town girl with big-time vocals was immersed in country and gospel music from a young age. “I grew up watching Hee Haw, listening to Alabama and Randy Travis tapes in my mama’s old, white Monte Carlo and watching early 90’s country music videos that my sisters recorded on our VCR”.
