 “Homegrown is a local band from Carrollton. They were founded in 2005 by two brothers, bassist Kevin Brannon and vocalist/guitarist Craig Brannon.  The band cut its teeth playing the West Georgia/East Alabama music scene for half a decade. In early 2011, the brothers and longtime drummer Jason Cole completed the band roster along with some old high school pals and guitarist Nick Ivey. With the current lineup, Homegrown has created a distinct, recognizable sound. Their unique brand of collaborative songwriting has given them a catalog of heartfelt songs about life as they know it. Together with a country/rock/pop delivery you won’t find anywhere else, Homegrown has created a niche for itself in the world of country music.” Welcome Carroll County’s own Homegrown Band.

Music and Announcements from 7:30pm – 8:30pm
