Celebrate Georgia Southern University’s Homecoming weekend with Georgia native, GSU alumnus and songwriting master Tony Arata and his crew of talented friends: Pat Alger, J. Fred Knobloch, Grammy winner Mark D. Sanders, and harmonica extraordinaire Kirk “Jelly Roll” Johnson.

The creative genius behind Garth Brooks’ mega-hit song “The Dance,” Tony Arata is a renowned Nashville songwriter and has written hits for numerous artists, including Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire, Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, and Lee Roy Parnell. Arata has previously played to sold-out crowds at the Averitt Center for the Arts and the Tybee Post Theater, and each member of the group is a fixture at Nashville’s world-famous Bluebird Café. Hear songs like Grammy-nominated and CMA Song of the Year “The Dance”, “The Thunder Rolls”, “Unanswered Prayers”, “I Hope You Dance”, “Out of the Blue Clear Sky”, “If My Heart Had Wings”, and 2015 Grammy Award-winning country song “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”. Join this acclaimed musician and his comrades for an intimate “in-the-round” performance, and listen as they share the stories and inspirations behind the songs you know and love.
