Noah Hicks, singer/songwriter, will perform beginning at 8 pm. Get ready for a great show!
With a vocal warmth that emulates the feel of his Carrollton, Ga. upbringing, country newcomer Noah Hicks tells his story through song in a way that’s strangely familiar and universally relatable. Raised in a musically inclined family (predominantly on his father’s side), Hicks was naturally drawn to the art form. A singer from birth, he and his best friend got their first guitars in third grade. Hicks spent the next several years honing his craft, while watching, listening to, and supporting fellow artists from his area, including up-and-coming stars Dylan Marlowe and Riley Green. He continued to play throughout Georgia and Alabama, releasing his first single – a Marlowe-penned “Raised on the Radio” – in 2018.
In January 2020, Hicks made his final trip to Nashville, officially moving to Music City and in March, he released his sophomore single “Drinking Alone,” and soon began receiving inquiries from publishing companies in town – including Stover-owned RED Creative. With a hit songwriter and producer now at the helm of Hicks’ career, he found himself in writing rooms with other esteemed writers like Rhett Akins, Brandon Kinney, Cole Taylor, Jordan Walker, and Justin Weaver, further leaning into his sound as a writer and artist and, true to form, making a few friends in the process. That hard work-meets-people first mentality leads Hicks to where he stands now: a promising up-and-comer with a series of market-friendly singles due out in 2021 – starting with “No More Of ‘Em,” which released on May 14 followed by “Miss You Back” which dropped May 28. What’s more – he takes his musical prowess and packages it in an unparalleled, high-energy live show journey that seals the deal for potential fans every time he takes the stage. “I never thought being a singer was even possible – I intended to do what everyone else did. I’ve worked farms, built fences, tended cows, tinted windows… Becoming an artist was always just a dream. Now I’m blessed to call it my job.”
