Support the Carroll County Chapter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta by attending this year’s second annual West Fest on April 20 from 3 pm to 10:30 pm. Sponsored by the University of West Georgia, Greenway Medical Technologies, RA-LIN and other corporate leaders, West Fest is a family-friendly outdoor music festival for anyone looking to have a good time while supporting a great cause.
West Fest includes a morning 5K, family activities throughout the day and an evening of music from local bands Homegrown Band, Roadhouse Atlanta, Jessi Lynn and nationally recognized headliner, Corey Smith. Corey Smith was named one of country music’s hottest new artists by Country Weekly and Music Row Magazine. He has hundreds of sold-out performances under his belt and a growing, dedicated fan-base due to hits such as “Twenty-One,” “Maybe Next Year” and “If I Could Do It Again.”
