Alex Guthrie will perform in the Dogwood Center's Black Box on Friday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m. Guthrie is an Atlanta based "earthy, soul, pop" artist who is turning heads across the states. With the infusion of different genres, Guthrie brings audiences together through brilliant lyrics and an expressive voice.
Most recently, Guthrie performed the National Anthem at SunTrust Park for the Atlanta Braves, voted “Most Popular” Emerging Artist at the 2018 Summerfest in Milwaukee, opened for Smash Mouth at the Coca Cola Roxy for the Arby’s Foundation Dream Big Event, and perhaps, most notably, Guthrie has been noted as “the guy from the Jennifer Hudson commercial.” The now-infamous American Family Insurance commercial that features him playing in Atlanta’s Woodruff Park when the Grammy Award-Winning singer Jennifer Hudson surprises Guthrie and sings along to Bill Wither’s beloved “Lovely Day.” The commercial has played on national television and radio, resulting in new opportunities and heightened awareness for Alex Guthrie, his band and his music.

In 2015, Guthrie and his band were awarded the Georgia Americana Artist of the Year, an astounding achievement that brought his music attention and recognition. Within a short span of time, Guthrie was opening up for national touring artists including Kelly Clarkson. A new album is currently being recorded and is expected to be released in spring 2019.
