JoAnna Smith in concert here Saturday

Early County’s own JoAnna Smith, a native of Arlington, returns to Blakely Saturday to perform at Christmas on the Square. This has been a banner year for “Jo” and she’s excited to bring her music home.

In May, Jo was named one of “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” by Rolling Stone and she was just named to County Music Television’s 2018 class Women in Country.” She was also named a “Highway Find” on SiriusXM The Highway in 2017, joining acts like Florida Georgia Line and Cole Swindell.

Jo Smith’s music has a rare cross-demographic appeal to adults and kids, guys and girls. And Jo Smith is catching on.

In addition to a successful songwriting (Taylor Hicks’ current single “Six Strings and Diamond Rings” and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Flyin’ By, among others), Jo is a Rolling Stone One To Watch in 2017.

Her “JoTown Sound” as she likes to call it, is gaining steam. In addition to her other accomplishments, she is a regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry.
