“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.

Featured Artist of the Month – Jerry Moore

This month, The Paper features Jerry Moore – also known as J’Mo – who as a lifelong Coweta County resident and family man from the Welcome community, became a multi-talented musician, retiree from the Coweta County school system as a skilled craftsman, a mentor to the young and a source of inspiration to the more seasoned musicians. 

You can find his previously-published story HERE.
