Claremont, NC – The Claremont Friends of the Library (Catawba County Library System) is presenting a special night of food, stories, and original live music with Radney Foster on Thursday, October 26th at 6:30 pm at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Claremont.

As a singer, songwriter, and author, Foster will be reading and performing from his latest project, “For You to See the Stars”, comprised of two parts – a book and song CD. The book is a collection of fictional short stories influenced by Foster’s upbringing on the Mexican border in Del Rio, TX.

Although the literature can be enjoyed independently, each story is uniquely coupled with a song. The 10-track album, also titled “For You to See the Stars”, features nine new songs and a special re-recording of “Raining on Sunday,” the song Foster co-wrote with Darrell Brown, which became one of Keith Urban’s top Billboard singles.

This project is Radney Foster’s eleventh album. Foster has written eight number one hit singles, including his own “Nobody Wins,” and “Crazy Over You” with duo Foster & Lloyd. His discography contains countless cuts by artists ranging anywhere from country (Keith Urban, The Dixie Chicks, Luke Bryan, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) to contemporary (Marc Broussard, Hootie & The Blowfish, Kenny Loggins, Los Lonely Boys). Although highly recognized and accomplished in the music world, Foster is a true renaissance man. Tickets are now available for $15 through the Claremont Friends of the Library and the Claremont Branch Library. Admission includes a catered dinner along with this live performance with Radney Foster weaving together an evening of stories and songs. Contact the Claremont Branch Library at 828-466-6817 for additional information.

St. Mark’s Lutheran Church is located at 3216 W. Main St, Claremont NC, 28610. This event will be held in the Family Life Center on the church campus. For the latest in library news, visit or stop by your local branch.
