On Saturday, May 27, Larry Fleet will perform at the F.M. Kirby Center!
Don't let Larry Fleet's humble demeanor fool you: the Chattanooga-based Country singer-songwriter is the real deal, with fans in contemporary heavy-hitters like Jake Owen and living Country legends like Willie Nelson. He's a thoughtful songwriter with a knack for a one-liner, an ear for a good hook and a powerhouse voice that strikes the perfect balance of soul and twang.
You can hear all this and more on Fleet's new single "Where I Find God." Written alongside award-winning songwriter Connie Harrington, "Where I Find God" is a beautifully heartfelt ode to family, fishing and Fleet's unyielding faith. "Sometimes, whether I'm lookin' for him or not / That's where I find God," Fleet sings, with his soul-drenched twang adding an element of gospel to the track's stripped-down Country arrangement.
Fleet first showed off his masterful musicianship on his acclaimed debut album Workin' Hard, which released via Big Loud Records in late 2019. Sonically, Workin’ Hard draws from Fleet's eclectic musical influences, which include Outlaw Country icons like Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson as well as classic Soul singers like Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding. Fleet's blue-collar roots shine across the album's lyrics, which show him to be a hard worker, a family man and the kind of guy you'd want to slow-sip a beer with.
Larry Fleet is a tireless artist who knows who he is and what he wants to do. And he may be humble, but Fleet has paid his dues and he's rightfully poised for stardom. Turn up the volume and see what all the fuss is about.
