The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities put on its first concert hosting up and coming female artist, Liz Longley.
The concert took place on Thursday, Jan. 17.
Jordan Thorne opened the show for Longley. Thorne is a 16-year-old from Roswell, GA.
Thorne said one of the most frustrating things about being a young musician is that people think she is too young to have experienced the emotions she writes about.
Longley is a Pennsylvania born, singer-songwriter currently living in Nashville. She is currently on tour and working on her sixth album.
Longley has been writing songs since she was 14 years old. She comes from a musical family. Her grandfather was an Army band leader and made her father and his siblings learn to play instruments.
Her first album, "Take You Down," was released in 2007.

Longley is working on her next album with Grammy-nominated producer, Paul Moak, and it is expected to come out later this year.
"It's the best record I've ever been able to make, by far," Longley said.
Longley said she gets a lot of inspiration from singer Joni Mitchell. Longley said she hopes her music inspires people to reflect on and tap into a deeper part of themselves.
