NORMAN — Corey Smith, born and raised in Jefferson, Ga., will heat up the summer scene with a free concert at 8 p.m. on July 18 at the University of Oklahoma.
Smith has released seven studio albums — including 2011’s Top 20 release The Broken Record — all written and produced by himself.
“Summer Must-Stay Weekend creates an exciting atmosphere for students taking summer classes in Norman while still ensuring every event is affordable for all,” Jake Netherton, concert organizer and social work senior, said.
The concert will be the second Must-Stay Weekend concert held this year. In April 2014, pop musical duo Sleigh Bells performed for more than 5,000 people on the East Lawn. Concert organizers plan to continue hosting a Must-Stay Weekend throughout the spring, summer and fall semesters.
The concert will be on the East Lawn of the Oklahoma Memorial Union, near the intersection of Asp Avenue and Felgar Street. The concert has been organized by the combined efforts of the Union Programming Board, Campus Activities Council, the Interfraternity Council, the OU IT Store and OU Summer Session.
