Marty Stuart, a five-time Grammy winner and platinum recording artist, will return to the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, Aug. 29. This time, he’s bringing his wife and well-known country music singer, Connie Smith. The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $32 each.

Marty Stuart is best known for his success in country music, but he has strong roots in gospel and bluegrass music, too. He is a selftaught guitar and mandolin player which led him to join Johnny Cash’s backup band where he played for five years before breaking out on his own. Thirty-five years later, this singer, songwriter, photographer, and historian continues to lead the charge in preserving the roots, culture, and heritage of traditional country music.


Fine art, rustic furniture, and a variety of quality crafts will be the order of the day at the Village Square Art & Craft Show Aug. 29 & 30 in downtown Highlands from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Enjoy live music, food, and regional artisans, such as furniture maker David Tripp of Franklin.

Sponsored by the Macon County Art Assn., this free event is at the K-H Founders Park on Pine Street.

Call (828) 787-2021 for information.

Group delivers disco classics and a high energy show.

What do you get when you have a cop, a soldier, a construction worker, a biker, a cowboy, and a Native American all together in one room? The Village People, that's what, and they are coming to Franklin.

It doesn't matter what you are doing, where you are, or how old you are, when the song "YMCA" by the Village People comes on, it's a given, you do "The YMCA." That song, along with other original disco sensations by The Village People such as "Macho Man" and "Go West" have been solidified as classics that will continue to span generations of music lovers.


Hot off the heels of advancing to the third round of NBC’s television show “America’s Got Talent,” the Sylva-based bluegrass/gospel group Mountain Faith will perform in front of their hometown crowd on Friday, Aug. 14.

The performance is scheduled from 7 to 9 p.m., at Sylva’s Bridge Park Pavilion as part of the Concerts on the Creek summer music series. The free show will be the last one before they perform live in the third round of America’s Got Talent at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

The Mountain Faith band has been singing and traveling together for 14 years. Members include Summer McMahan (fiddle/vocals), Brayden McMahan (banjo/vocals), Sam McMahan (bass), Cory Piatt (mandolin), and Luke Dotson (guitar/vocals).
