    Corey Smith @ UK

    I saw Corey Smith tonight at the Singletary Center for the Arts on UK's campus, and he put on a GREAT show. Has anyone else been to one of his shows? If not, I recommend it, he is a real talent.

    Off the top of my head, I'm not really sure who that is.

    I had a buddy who texted me yesterday and said he had met Corey Smith. I had never heard of the guy before then.

    He's a guy & guitar (for the most part) that (IMO) sings exactly what college and high school aged people want to hear: running from the cops, drinking, girls, etc. I think he is like 35, he is a pretty good singer, and from what I hear had a good show last night.

    If you at his wikipedia entry it would seem that he is trying to re-tell the experiences that he never had, or someone really doesn't like him.

    I don't know if he is 35 or not, but he is a 2001 UGA alum who is well known around the South. He plays mostly bars, clubs, small theater venues, etc. and like CCH said, he sings exactly what the kids want to hear. One of my favorite songs is called Twenty-one, it's pretty much him talking about being 17 and wanting to be 21, then being 26 and wanting to be 21 again. Here is his website if you wanna check it out.

    I love Corey Smith's songs. He has a super unique voice. One of my favorite songs of his is "21". I just downloaded it on Itunes last night.
