James Kelly

CL Correspondent

A proud resident of Cabbagetown — the home of Fiddlin' John Carson, the first person to record a country record — Kelly has been rolling in his sweet baby's arms writing about Country music and Atlanta's Redneck Underground in the pages of Creative Loafing since the Austin Avenue Buffet was still the place to grab a cold PBR. His knowledge of the music was handed down from his father, himself a country musician, who taught his son well. You may also know Kelly from his time in Slim Chance & the Convicts.
