Corey Smith to release live album recorded at Chattanooga's Track 29


CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -- About a year after his first appearance at Track 29 abruptly ended during a controversial song selection, Georgia country-blues rocker Corey Smith is gearing up to release an album recorded at the venue.

According to a Sunday entry on Smith's Twitter account, "Live in Chattanooga" will be released in "late October." The album will be the singer's sixth and was recorded during his second show at Track 29 on Sept. 14, said venue owner Adam Kinsey.

"About a week after [the show], they asked us if we were OK with him releasing it as a live CD, and we said absolutely," Kinsey said, adding that Smith's crew recorded the performance directly through the soundboard.

"We're excited about it. That night, Corey and his band sounded really good," he continued. "There was a lot of energy in the room, and Corey picked up on that and that came through in the recording."
