March 19, 2013. A favorite among students, Corey Smith returns to Legends on Wednesday March 20, 2013 for the first time in 2 years. Since the last time he played in Boone, he has released a new album, “Live in Chattanooga” where he performs a combination of songs from all of his past albums. Patrons attending the show will be sure to hear a few if not many of the songs on this album.

Corey Smith was named one of country music’s hottest new artists and Music Row Magazine and was featured on the cover of Pollstar as a Hotstar Top Artist. He has hundreds of sold-out performances under his belt and a dedicated fan-base. A pure singer- songwriter, Corey is in a league of his own in the country world. In the past five years he has played 700 shows all over the nation, sold over $700,000 tickets, and grossed $9 million in revenue.

Tickets for the March show are $15 for ASU students in advance and $20 for the public or day of the show. Doors will open at 9 p.m. and the event is BYOB for guests that are 21 or older.
