David Childers Continues Piedmont Music Legacy

Friday, August 23, 2019

From Arthur Smith to the Avett Brothers, the greater Charlotte metro area has long been a cradle of good music, and more specifically, great songwriters. David Childers is one of them. A renaissance man, Childers is a songwriter, painter, poet and former attorney. The Mt. Holly, N.C. native grew up watching the legendary Arthur Smith show – the first nationally syndicated country music television show – which he cites as a major influence on his love of music. He started playing guitar as a teenager and began releasing music in the mid-90s. Most recently, Childers has toured and worked with Kyle Petty and his newest record, Run Skeleton Run, features Scott Avett and Avett Brother bassist Bob Crawford as an executive producer.
