Shawn Mullins and Mindy Smith

Event Details

March 3, 2013 | 7:00 PM | Pollak Theatre


Grammy nominated singer songwriter Shawn Mullins has undergone a series of transformative experiences leading to his eleventh studio release, Light You Up. His experiences included delving into the collaborative creative process by intensive co-writing, and in one instance putting him atop of the country charts via a key contribution to the Zac Brown Band’s “Toes,” marking his fourth #1 single, following 1999’s “Lullaby” and the 2006 Triple A/Americana chart-topper “Beautiful Wreck.” 

The world got its first introduction to Mindy Smith nearly a decade ago, when she won over Dolly Parton lovers with an elegantly pleading cover of “Jolene,” then promptly added to their number fans of wide-ranging Americana, connoisseurs of confessional songcraft, appreciators of mature pop melodicism and seekers of spiritual heft with her Vanguard Records debut One Moment More and the three albums that followed.
