The WDVX Blue Plate Special live from Visit Knoxville – 3/31 – Brandon Maddox / Kim Smith
March 31, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
From sharing the stage with superstar, Brett Eldredge, as well as acclaimed performances in casinos, clubs, and festivals to having original songs featured in movies and appearing on TV and radio shows, Brandon Maddox, has quickly established himself as one of Country Music’s rising stars. He was named, “Monster Truck Artist of the Year” and was both a Josie Award recipient in 2017 for his hit single “Dixie Chaser” as well as the winner of “Song of the Year” in 2019 for his song “Drive Me to Drink.”
Brandon’s dad schooled him in classic rock, so it was only natural that when the youngster picked up the guitar and taught himself to play, he used a Beatle’s songbook. While teaching himself, he noticed a common thread among the songs—the songs were written by actual members of The Beatles. Brandon wrote his first song at the tender age of 11 and now has an original catalog of over a thousand songs, a few of which have won awards. After college Brandon moved to Nashville from his hometown near Chattanooga, TN to pursue his songwriting passion.
Kim Smith is a Singer-Songwriter / collaborator based in Asheville, North Carolina.
