Smash Cancer Announcement
This summer, Canaan Smith launched the Smash Cancer initiative. After impulsively smashing a drum at a show earlier this year, and receiving an overwhelming crowd response, Canaan came up with an idea to use on-stage fun as an opportunity to raise money. He now autographs damaged drums after each show, and auctions them off to fans. Prior to the official launch, Smith already raised more than $20,000, and has since caught the attention of Guitar Center (now officially partnering to provide drums for this effort.) As Canaan earns for this cause, proceeds will continue to go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
