Tuesday night my husband, my granddaughter, and myself headed off to Senoia, Georgia, the location of the new Southern Ground Social Club. The club is the brain-child of country music star, Zac Brown, bringing together a lot of his ventures, hopes, and dreams. Atlanta’s Lifestyles Magazine recently wrote a short, descriptive article of it HERE. It was a fascinating place, uniquely and thoughtfully decorated and packed with people all there to hear their favorite finalist in an open mic competition.

In our case, my older son, Dave was competing, singing duets with a young lady named Melodie Gonzales. We ate a modest dinner, enjoyed some fantastic peach cobbler, and waited. Eventually we were joined by our younger son, Daniel and a couple of his friends. Have to say, by the way, that the servers were sweet and helpful, despite a few requests I made that were out of their normal routine.
We listened to some awesome talent that night, solo artists, duets, bands, none of them disappointed. In the end, we heard Dave and Melodie announced as winners and offered the opening slot at a multi-band event in Senoia this Saturday that features Zac Brown and multiple artists and bands from his label.
I’m pretty sure it goes without saying, but…I was a very proud momma!
So, since you couldn’t join me that night, I’ve given you the ability to hear for yourself if you are so inclined. Keep in mind, there was a large crowd and I had to video from below the stage due to the set-up at Southern Ground. Bear with it a few seconds and you’ll hear more clearly. And one last warning, the announcer has a rather unique sense of humor….
They did a total of three songs. I’ve included the first, Flowers in Your Hair, below. To hear the others, Billie Jean and Little Talks, follow the links below to my YouTube channel.
