GREENEVILLE – From the Grammy Award Winning music of Switchfoot, to one of CMT’s Documentary Series top southern comics in the business, Etta May, a great weekend is in store for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville.
In celebration of their triple platinum album’s 20th anniversary, Switchfoot released their new LP The Beautiful Letdown. The audience will hear re-recordings of the chart-topping hits “Meant To Live,” “Dare You to Move” and more when Switchfoot makes a stop in Greeneville on Saturday, Sept. 30.
“Do we believe in these tunes? Are these songs still worthwhile? Ultimately, we came to the conclusion that the record label’s opinion didn’t matter. We believed in these songs. And no record company logo or opinion could take that away. We decided to do what we had always done: singing in spite of whatever opposition we might face, paving our own road, and finding a way forward,” lead singer and guitarist Jon Foreman reminisces.
It’s knee-slapping comedy when Etta May and the Southern Fried Chicks come to town Sunday, Oct. 1. Winner of the prestigious “Comic of the Year,” this Kentucky woman is hailed as the “Polyester Princess,” and the reigning Queen of Southern Sass. Joining in on the fun are Jodi White and Sonya White. These ladies deliver a high powered, take-no-prisoners performance full of truth, irony, humor, and wisdom.
You can catch Switchfoot, The Beautiful Let Down 20th Anniversary Tour on September 30 at 7:30 p.m., and Etta May and The Southern Fried Chicks on October 1 at 3 p.m.
