ith support from the Dalton-based North
Georgia Electric Membership Corp.
(EMC) Operation Round Up program,
the nonprofit Share America Foundation recently
released the CD "Americana Youth of Southern
Appalachia." The album highlights musical performances by more than 30 young people ages 11 to 27
from the Southern Appalachian region in Georgia,
Tennessee and North Carolina.
The 18-track CD is part of the Catoosa Countybased Share America Foundation's mission to
promote the preservation of the Appalachian musical tradition among young people. With donations
from EMC members who opt to round up their bills
every month in the Operation Round Up program, the
North Georgia EMC Foundation contributed two $1,000
grants in separate funding
cycles. The grants assisted
with mailing costs to distribute the CDs to radio stations
and with studio costs so that
young people from the EMC's
service area could record professionally for the first time.
"This project gave many
of the youths their first opportunity to collaborate with
other musicians and learn
how to play on someone
else's song or tune," said
Randall Franks, president of
the Share America Foundation and producer of the album. "Some wrote their own
songs. It gives them a chance
to see their lessons and practice turn into something they
hopefully wish to share for
years to come."
Wally O'Donald of
Ringgold was 10 when he recorded "Traveler's Lantern,"
a song by one of his favorite

"It was really cool to be in a recording studio and see all of
the equipment," he said. "I didn't know before how much time
it takes to record a song. I am grateful, though, for the opportunity."
The CD has been well-received and has been distributed
worldwide through a partnership with AirPlayDirect.com.
It was the No. 1 album in the AirPlayDirect Americana/
"grassicana" global albums category in June and was No. 9
among all global-album genres.
