Last night we saw Billy Strings at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Ga, was fantastic! What Billy is able to do is INSANE! Myself, my cousin and friends lucked into seeing the show from one of the corporate boxes and I can confidently say “Good Time had by All!”

Videos from Billy String’s 2023 Atlanta Show
Took a few videos from the show, wanted to get in the band while capturing the giant screens so you can see the performers up close. I think they came out pretty good.
I’ll Be a Gone a Long Time
The Hobo Song
All I can say is that it was a fantastic show and so glad I was able to see them live. Seeing them live is even more impressive than on the records.
Should You get the chance, I say go!
