Montgomery Gentry concertgoers will have the chance to hear a song from a local band that should hit the radio waves early next year.
Harlem’s Jeremy Graham recently signed a three-year contract with Dominion Entertainment, and he and his band will perform the single Ride Out to Nowhere on Friday at Lady Antebellum Pavilion before Gentry takes the stage.
“Ride Out to Nowhere is a song when you have a little something on your mind, and you need some alone time,” said Graham, the band’s lead singer and one of its songwriters.
A strong odor prompted the evacution of Warren Road Elementary School on Wednesday.
The odor was initially feared to be a gas leak but later determined to be the smell of diesel coming from equipment at a nearby construction site. Dee Griffin, spokeswoman for the Augusta Fire Department, said students were sent to nearby Good News Church while the gas company investigated.
Callers are scamming Aiken County residents out of money, police warned Wednesday.
The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office issued a warning about callers telling residents they have missed jury duty or have outstanding fees that need to be paid because of an impending warrant.
Police said law enforcement will never contact residents over the phone demanding immediate payment for outstanding fines or warrants. Any outstanding fees should be paid to the appropriate Court of Clerk office directly or by mail, but not by phone.
