Driftwood to make WNC debut

Karly Driftwood. Karly Driftwood.

Nashville country/indie act Karly Driftwood will hit the stage at 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, at The Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville. 

In an effort to bust out of her Virginia hometown and head for the bright lights of Nashville, rising singer-songwriter Karly Driftwood put down her guitar and reached for the stripper pole — eventually gathering up enough dollar bills to fill the gas tank, the hood of the car soon aimed for Music City.

Known for her dark, snarky, yet honest melodic tales, Driftwood is a force of nature, this “hell or high water” presence that is steadily moving up the ranks.

Free and open to the public. Ages 21 and older. 828.456.4750 or
