Feb 3, 2014. Throw on your boots and head to campus! Country music star Corey Smith will be making his way back to Appalachian State University for yet another spectacular show at Legends.
Corey has amassed an unfailingly devout fan base, not only in his native Southeast region, but all around the nation, simply by telling it the way it is. He has released seven studio albums—including 2011’s Top 20 release The Broken Record—all written and produced by Corey himself.
One of the nation’s most popular top country artists has graced stages around the globe with his unique sound and will be visiting Appalachian State University for a special concert starting at 9 p.m. for guests 18 and up.
“Corey Smith has been coming since 2007, with the exception of just one year,” said Randy Kelly, advisor for the Concerts Council of the Appalachian State Popular Programming Society.
“He is such a well known artist, and we usually sell out or get pretty close. Legends can hold 1,000 people, and we always have a great crowd for this show.”
Tickets are $15 for students when purchased in advance and $20 at the door for the general public. Legends is located at 190 Hardin St. on Appalachian State University’s campus in Boone. Legends is BYOB with a six-pack limit per guest with valid ID.
Legends has just announced two huge upcoming shows for this spring.
The bluegrass group Punch Brothers will be coming to the Holmes Center on March 19 and comedian Craig Robinson of “The Office” fame will be appearing at the Holmes Center March. 2.
“The tickets that we posted on the Punch Brothers’ website have already sold out, and we hadn’t even announced it until just now,” Kelly said.
Tickets for all shows are available at the Ticket Desk at Plemmons Student Union or online here.
