Small Town Spotlight: DJ Lavine


When it comes to music, I know what's good and what's not. Searching on YouTube one day I found this video of a young man from Georgia singing a Brantley Gilbert cover. Then it happened…goosebumps. My search started there, I knew I had to find this guy and see what he was about.

DJ Lavine grew up in Bloomingdale, GA. He has been singing since he was just a kid and even sang in choir during elementary school. Although music wasn't enough to keep him out of trouble as a teenager. It wasn't until after he was out of school that he started taking music seriously. He started singing karaoke at some of the local bars and even began to post YouTube videos of himself. He became very popular locally and within one year he had over 300,000 views via YouTube. DJ is currently residing in Savannah, GA where he works as a house DJ for a local bar called Bootleggers. He has a full band and books shows often around town. He dreams of playing on the Grand Ole Opry stage one day and is determined to make a name for himself in country music. Currently, he is working on a EP album.
