There is never a shortage of new artists putting out country music. Over the last 3 years WGNA has taken pride in bringing you the ones that count.

The WGNA Rising Stars concert series is back for 2011 at the beautiful GE Theater at Proctors in Schenectady, New York.  These shows are acoustic so you can hear the artists and get a real feel for who they are and what they bring to the country music family at WGNA.

Colombia Records recording artist Joanna Smith will be our fist rising star. The show will be January 13th at 7:30pm. Tickets are $17 and on sale now at the Proctors box office, phone charge at 518-346-6204 or buy online at www.proctors.org Joanna Smith debuted with her first hit "Gettin' Married", in July of 2010 and has been turning heads and ears since day one.  Don't miss this one with WGNA. The GE Theater seats about 350 people and last year our 3 shows were sold out.
