Most recently, Guthrie has been noted as “the guy from the Jennifer Hudson commercial.” The now-infamous American Family Insurance commercial features him playing in Atlanta’s Woodruff Park when the Grammy Award-Winning singer and performer Jennifer Hudson surprises Guthrie and sings along to Bill Wither’s beloved “Lovely Day.” The commercial has played on national television and radio, resulting in new opportunities and heightened awareness for Alex Guthrie, his band and his music.

Guthrie and his band have performed events including Milwaukee’s Summerfest - which was also featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Music - as well as the 30A Songwriter’s Festival in Florida, Wire and Wood Songwriter Festival in Alpharetta, GA, Jammin’ Java Listening Room in Vienna, VA, the Elbo Room in Chicago, IL and Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, GA.

In the early stages of his career, Guthrie released his first album, Lessons Learned, and also scored the Atlanta Braves Band of the Year in 2014. In 2015, Guthrie and his band were awarded the Georgia Americana Artist of the Year - another astounding achievement bringing his music much-deserved attention and recognition. Within a short span of time, Guthrie was opening up for national touring artists including renowned BMLG Records recording Artist Drake White, RCA recording artist Bleachers, and famous Atlantic Records recording Artist Kelly Clarkson.

Singer-songwriter Alex Guthrie continues to impress and defy conventional expectations, making waves as he makes great music. A new album is currently being recorded and is expected to be released in Spring 2018.

    The Southern Wing Showdown is proud to help support the following charities:


    Angel Flight Soars

    Angle Flight logoIllness isn't stopped by boundaries and cures shouldn't be, either. Whether boundaries are geographic or financial, Angel Flight Soars helps by arranging free non-emergency flights to medical treatment. This nonprofit helps families get to the hope of lifesaving medical treatments, surgeries and clinical programs as often and as long as necessary to ensure that no one has to go without the care they need simply because they can't get there. Angel Flight Soars is located at the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport in Atlanta and arranges free air transportation with volunteer pilots on private aircraft for medically stable and ambulatory patients.

    Second Helpings Atlanta, Inc

    Second Hellpings LogoSecond Helpings Atlanta (SHA) is a non-profit food rescue organization whose mission is to fight hunger and reduce food waste in metro Atlanta by rescuing surplus food and delivering it to those in need. With a team of nearly 500 Volunteer drivers, SHA serves as the link between our network of 59 Food Donors and the 31 front-line Partner Agencies that feed the hungry on a daily basis. Throughout the year, our Volunteers rescue nutritious food from our Food Donors, transport it to one of our Partner Agencies and return home in 90 minutes or less. Since our first food pick-up in 2004, SHA has collected and distributed over 5 million pounds of food, enough food to provide over 4.16 million meals.
