The Kelley Brothers are excited to announce the return of the CSRA’s top charity event – Sticks & Strings Concert & Golf Tournament! Hailing from Augusta, Georgia, John, Josh and Charles Kelley are a trio of brothers who were raised loving family, golf and music. While only one still calls Augusta home, all love the community that raised them and are thrilled to come together for two great days of music and golf!

The concert is scheduled for Sunday, November 20 at the Columbia County Performing Arts Center. The show will begin with an acoustic set featuring the three Kelley Brothers telling stories about growing up together in Augusta and singing the songs they’ve written over the years. Following that will be a celebrity jam where the brothers will share the stage with their friends: musicians, golfers and actors. The golf tournament will be held at Champions Retreat on Monday, November 21.

The healthcare recipient bears the name of the Kelley Brothers father, The John W. Kelley, M.D., Cardiovascular Endowment. This endowment was established to promote education and training of students within the Harry T.

About the Kelley Brothers:
John Kelley, the oldest of the Brothers, grew up playing at West Lake Country Club and Augusta Country Club. He played college golf at Wake Forrest University and has competed in various state and regional amateur events since his college days. After spending 15 years running a construction and development company in North Carolina John returned home to pursue real estate development. He sings in a Led Zeppelin tribute band enjoys time on the golf course with his three children, Walter, Trudie, and Grady.

Josh Kelley, the Brothers’ middle child, released his first CD at the age of 14. After high school, he attended the University of Mississippi on a golf scholarship. In 2001, he released his independent album, Changing Faces, and a year later signed with Hollywood Records. Some of Josh’s notable hit songs include “Amazing”, “Georgia Clay” and “Only You” which reached top 10 on the Billboard Charts. Josh is also responsible for writing the theme song for the hit sitcom, “Mike and Molly”. Josh married actress Katherine Heigl in 2007. The couple lives in Utah and are proud parents to daughters Naleigh Moon, Adalaide, as well as son Josh Jr.

Charles Kelley, the youngest of the Brothers, has not only had success as part of Lady A, but also earned a GRAMMY nomination for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” from his solo debut album’s release, THE DRIVER. As a co-writer on many chart-topping Lady A hits, including the 9X Platinum hit “Need You Now,” Kelley has also penned No. One hits by Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Brett Young and Russell Dickerson. Kelley was recently tapped by ESPN for his rendition of the iconic track “Georgia On My Mind” that was used in the official nationwide commercial leading into the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club. Lady A have long been a model of mainstream success. Their 11 No. Ones, 18 million albums sold, 34 million tracks, five billion digital streams and a global touring footprint prove the point. With a renewed sense of inner strength and hope, the multi-Platinum band released their eighth studio album WHAT A SONG CAN DO (BMLG Records). Working again with producer Dann Huff, the 14 tracks reinvigorate the band’s signature sound and electrifying harmony that has dominated charts for more than a decade.
