Country Boy Things - Available Now!

Canaan Smith flexes backroad muscle in his brand-new track, “Country Boy Things,” another full throttle blast of energy.

Standing tall as an unapologetic chest-thumper, “Country Boy Things” has a single, anthemic focus – paying respect to the blue-collar Joes of the world who know exactly who they are and what they’re about. 

Co-written by Smith with Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley, Jaren Johnston of The Cadillac Three and Corey Crowder, the tune’s loud-and-proud guitars, hard-charging drums, and roughneck lyrics celebrate country-living and backwoods essentials – from muddy tires and bonfire hangouts to working hard and having an independent spirit.

“This song reminds me of moving to Nashville – when those four-on-the-floor songs were making a comeback,” says Smith. “I’m proud of the way the band came together and made this one burn. Banjo, baby!”

Canaan Smith may not be a weatherman, but I sure like where his forecast is going.

According to Smith, it looks like we’re heading into the second half of summer with the perfect balance of sunshine and cold ones in his “Beer Drinkin’ Weather.” The song is Smith’s first release as the flagship artist on Round Here Records, the label started by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley.

Smith co-wrote the new tune with Hubbard, Kelley and Corey Crowder. The video directors were Thomas Heney and Adam Romaine, and it was shot all over Holmdel, NJ, Mansfield, MA and Camden, NJ when Smith and Florida Georgia Line were out on their Can’t Say I Ain’t Country tour.

NASHVILLE, TENN. (August 15, 2019) — PLATINUM-certified hitmaker CANAAN SMITH storms back onto the Country scene today (8/15), predicting buzzy good vibes and can’t-bring-me-down fun with his new song, “BEER DRINKIN’ WEATHER.”

Featuring a maxed-out mix of cans-up Country and hard vibing party Rock, the up-tempo track was co-written by Smith with Florida Georgia Line superstars Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard plus chart-topping Tree Vibez Music writer Corey Crowder. All about taking life as it comes and making the most of any situation, it showcases his new, elevated mindset – and the beginning of a whole new creative chapter. Also co-produced by Smith with longtime friends Kelley and Hubbard, “BEER DRINKIN’ WEATHER” stands as a true live-for-the-moment anthem, filled with positivity and do-it-my-way edge.

“I always love a drinkin’ song, and this one here is a double-fister!” shares Smith. “I really like how we approached it musically – just a live band in a room with a whole lotta energy. I hope people crank this song way up and it makes ‘em thirsty for a good time.”

Just announced as the first artist signed to Kelley and Hubbard’s newly-formed label, ROUND HERE RECORDS, Smith will also celebrate his resurgence with an expanded role on Florida Georgia Line’s party of the summer – the ongoing CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR. So far, the sold-out run has found Smith keeping massive crowds energized in between sets by Dan + Shay, Morgan Wallen and HARDY, but fans have been calling for more, and now Smith’s stepping up with a full band performance of his own.

All this follows Smith’s romantically-charged breakout in 2014 with the PLATINUM #1 hit, “Love You Like That,” and his acclaimed Top 5 album debut from 2015, BRONCO. The undeniable talent went on to tour internationally, releasing a handful of other singles, including 2017’s “This Night Back,” which has tallied 30+ million digital streams.

There’s more big news and even more new music just over the horizon, so keep your eyes on the sky.

 

Florida Georgia Line Launch Round Here Records With Flagship Artist Canaan Smith: Exclusive

 

As Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley continue to expand their business interests, the pair has founded Round Here Records. The label’s flagship artist is Canaan Smith.

“The label started with a passion to create music and to make records,” Hubbard tells Billboard via phone. “It happened organically [as] we continued to find the artists and friends that we love, believe in and thought had a gift and talent that we wanted to try to nurture. It turned into something that we are really excited about. [We’re] trying to do some trailblazing in this record label space.”

Last year Smith signed to Tree Vibez Music – the duo’s publishing arm founded in 2015 – and Kelley says the pair have believed in him for years as a songwriter and artist. Previously signed to Mercury Records Nashville, Smith saw success in 2015 with his second single, “Love You Like That,” which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.
