In the contemporary country music scene, there are more than enough songwriters and artists who are overly
eager to tout their credibility as authentic representations of "country." Corey Smith, on the other hand, is the genuine
article. He expresses the complexities and joys of country life with a subtlety and honesty unmatched by any other country
artist working today. Hailing from Jefferson, one of Georgia's more pastoral towns, Smith would grow up in close proximity
to the musical hub of Athens. With more than enough country artists celebrating the bonfires and pickup trucks of rural America,
Smith focusses instead on the more subtle and unexplored aspects of small town life.
Because country music is, at heart,
about people, Smith prizes the genre's ability to hold the mirror up to the artist himself and his own everyday experiences
of rural life. More than a few country music fans agree with him. Smith's audience is unshakable in their enthusiasm for his
honest approach, and his fans abound not only in his native Georgia but across the nation. His unmatched ability to tell it
like it really is is evident in his seven sterling studio albums that Smith would write and produce entirely on his own. Smith's
innumerable concerts inevitably sell out, and are unmissable experiences that are renowned for the legions of fans singing
along to the pounding tunes, from the warm and fuzzy "I Love Everyone" to the yearning reflections of "If I Could Do It Again"
to the definitive rite-of-passage song "Twenty-One."
Currently, Smith has set his mind to reaching out to an even wider
fan base around the world. He is now, for the first time ever, collaborating with a producer. Keith Stegall will be working
together with Smith after his stellar work with country music heavyweights and kindred spirits Zac Brown Band and the iconic
country music figure Alan Jackson. Together, Smith and Stegall have already come up with Smith's most globally appealing hit
track yet, the intriguing "Ain't Going Out Tonight." This single will be destined to appear on Smith's next studio album,
and its seemingly effortless sound takes the theme of staying in with your significant other and blends it with the realistic
attitude that there comes a time when love requires a few sacrifices and settling down. This theme – of transitioning
to another exciting life stage – is concurrent with Smith's upcoming album. In addition to developing a new attitude
to his career, Smith has been working on the lineup of a touring band that will display a musicality and technique of the
highest caliber yet.
Corey Smith's first album to chart would be his 2009 release Keeping
Up with the Joneses. This thoughtful LP would be a meditation on maintaining personal integrity after rising to celebrity
status. The acoustic tracks would showcase Smith's soothing vocals and poignant lyrics. His elegant and deliberate guitar
picking is a welcome and measured approach to the traditions of the genre. The tracks would complement each other, from swaggering
radio-friendly jams to raw and lonely ballads. His honest and deeply personal portrayal of himself is both touching and challenging,
and Keeping Up with the Joneses would establish Corey Smith as a refreshing new voice in country music.
Live in Chattanooga would rise even higher on the charts. This retrospective on Smith's biggest songs over the course of his
entire career would have a clear party feel and an infectious sing-a-long energy. With a smattering of his more serious tracks,
Live in Chattanooga would confirm Corey Smith's credibility as a very real representation of American country life.
One of Corey Smith's little known talents is his gift as an educator. Before deciding to pursue his musical
career full time at the age of twenty-eight, Smith would be a guitar, world history, and world geography teacher at North
Gwinnett High School in Georgia.
