Award-winning songwriter and recording artist Anthony Smith will perform an acoustic concert locally tomorrow (Friday).

Smith, a native of Scott County, will join fellow Nashville recording artists Lucy Angel, and local aspiring singer RJ Jeffers, at the Oneida High School Performing Arts Center for tomorrow’s show.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the Play With No Boundaries playground currently being constructed at Oneida City Park.

Tickets are available at NAPA Auto Parts, Mark’s Family Pharmacy, B&B Metals, Phillips Drive-In and Oneida High School in Oneida. In Whitley City, tickets are available at Bluegrass Candles Plus. Tickets can also be purchased online at

Tomorrow’s show will be Smith’s first local concert since he performed at Brimstone Recreation’s inaugural “White Knuckle Event” on the courthouse lawn in Huntsville in 2008.

Smith is best known for his 2002 debut album, If That Ain’t Country, which produced three Top 40 singles, including the title track. But he is also a noted songwriter, with songs recorded by Tim McGraw, George Strait and others.
