Bicentennial Birthday Bash

The City of Florence will celebrate its 200th birthday, and this will kick off almost a year of events as part of this very special occasion. The rain location is the Florence-Lauderdale Public Library.

Corey Smith Concert

Corey Smith is coming to Singin’ River LIVE in February 2018! Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 22nd at 9:00am! Tickets within 15 ft of the stage in the front will be $40. General Admission will be $20. Everything is STANDING ROOM ONLY.

The way Corey Smith sees it, he owes a debt to his fans. And it’s one he is determined to repay with his 10th album, While the Gettin’ Is Good. The project, released on Sugar Hill Records, marks the first time that the singer-songwriter, a wildly popular touring artist who has produced all of his past efforts, has turned over the reins to a bona fide country music producer in Keith Stegall. The result is Smith’s most ambitious record yet, as well as a return on the investment made by the fans who have supported him since his first album in 2003.

Hops & Hymns

Stop by the Singin’ River taproom for beer and singing hymns and folks songs with friends! It’s a fun, casual environment for everyone to enjoy music regardless of belief or disbelief.
