The Foundry in Athens hosts the second installment in the 2nd annual Songwriter Series featuring Mike Dekle, Levi Lowrey and Abby Owens. Doors open at 7 p.m., show starts at 8 p.m.; tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. The intimate concerts feature the artists sharing the stage and playing off of one another as they take turns sharing their songs and the stories behind them.

Mike Dekle is a State Farm insurance agent…and a hit country songwriter. Dekle has numerous top ten smashes under his belt that have been recorded by artists including Brantley Gilbert, Joe Nichols, Kenny Rogers and Tracy Bird. He has recorded four albums and is a favorite performer among songwriting rounds in Nashville and among fans and friends in his hometown of Athens.

Levi Lowrey is the great-great grandson of fiddler Gid Tanner, who led the pioneering string band. Lowrey, who also plays fiddle, has recorded five albums including the double-length Roots and Branches, released last year. Though he co-wrote the #1 Zac Brown Band hit, “Colder Weather,” and has appeared on numerous ZBB projects, Lowrey’s solo work is less Nashville pop and more reflective of his folk, bluegrass and old-timey music bloodline with gorgeous melodies and incredibly honest lyrics.

Like Gram Parsons before her, Abby Owens grew up in Waycross, Georgia, where she bought her first guitar at a pawnshop as a teen. After cutting her teeth playing locally, she moved to Macon and recorded two albums, Fore the Light Comes In, produced by David Barbe and Indiantown, produced by Jason Isbell. Owens is a prolific writer and intense performer who will be back in Athens for the first time in too long.
