Columbus is the first stop after the release of new album, Volume 1. Also being added to October lineup: Country Music group Eli Young Band

COLUMBUS, OH–September 18, 2020–On Saturday, October 10, Prime Social Group is bringing Shinedown’s frontman Brent Smith and guitarist Zach Myers’ acoustic project appropriately named, Smith & Myers, to the Westland Mall Drive-In.

“We are excited to be the first show after the release of the pairs’ new album “Volume 1” on October 9. Columbus fans will be in for an awesome night of music,” said Zach Ruben, President of Prime Social Group.

Smith & Myers evolved from a contest held asking fans what songs they would like them to cover acoustically. Because of the overwhelming response, the duo ended up releasing an acoustic EP “The Acoustic Sessions Part 1” and “The Acoustic Sessions Part 2” in 2014.

Now the pair are set to release their first full-length album “Volume 1” and is the first time music was created specifically for the Smith & Myers project. The music on the album focuses on the storytelling and songwriting with a rawness and vulnerable edge.

Smith & Myers will perform at the Westland Mall Drive-In on Saturday, October 10. Doors open at 6 pm. Tickets range from $120-280 per vehicle.  Each ticket to the Westland Mall Drive-In admits one standard passenger vehicle (car, truck, SUV) with up to (4) passengers, with additional passenger tickets being offered for a maximum vehicle capacity of up to six (6) people per vehicle.
