The Music: Local and Live in November
By KRIS YOUMANS, Special to The Paper
“Music gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination & life to everything.” … Plato
Newnan’s Kris Youmans fronts the Kris Youmans Band which has a unique roots, country sound with a bit of Western swing that makes them a perfect edition to GPB’s Georgia’s Country Connection series at GBP.org/country.
We are fortunate that Kris writes The Music column for us each month.
