Firefly Music Blue Ridge is thrilled to welcome CMA winning country music star Chely Wright to perform an intimate concert right here in Blue Ridge, GA on Saturday, Oct 6th!
In 1995, she was named Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music, then scored her first Top 40 country hit in 1997 with Shut Up and Drive, from her third album LET ME IN. Two years later, Wrights fourth album SINGLE WHITE FEMALE produced several hit singles, including the chart-topping Number 1 title track and her first gold album certification. In 2000, Wright and artist Brad Paisley co-wrote the duet Hard to Be a Husband, Hard to Be a Wife, performing it at the Grand Ole Oprys 75th anniversary gala. There were other career highlights in the next few years, including a nomination for The Horizon Award Vocal Event of the Year at the annual Country Music Association Awards, Top Female Vocalist at the Academy of Country Music Association, a Top 4 debut for her 2001 album NEVER LOVE YOU ENOUGH, and being named to People magazines 50 Most Beautiful People list that same year.
All proceeds from this event go to charity.
