NASHVILLE, TN (June 30, 2023) – Rising singer/songwriter CONNER SMITH’s authentic storytelling and rich, soulful voice has resonated with audiences nationwide, earning him a dedicated and passionate following. He’s come to know exactly what his fans want – and he’s delivering. Encapsulating his “high energy fan forward show” (All Country News) from his first-ever headline tour, Smith arrives today with a live version of his Top-30-bound single “Creek Will Rise” (The Valory Music Co.) that has quickly become an anthem among his loyal fanbase and amassed over 16 million streams to date. Captured during at-capacity home state stops in Knoxville and Nashville during the final trek of the tour this past spring, his rollicking performance is fully realized with its accompany music video – watch here.
“I’m beyond thrilled to release a live version of ‘Creek Will Rise’ and share special moments from my first headline tour with my fans,” said Smith. “Performing for sold-out crowds and witnessing the incredible support from so many has been a dream come true. I hope those who have been able to see my live show relive the magic through this track and those who haven’t yet, I’ll see you out on the road with Luke Bryan this summer!”
Smith has already had a jam-packed summer with his recent homecoming performance at CMA Fest in Nashville with upcoming festivals including Faster Horses (7/14) and Watershed (8/6) on the horizon. Next week, Smith joins Luke Bryan’s COUNTRY ON TOUR this summer beginning July 6 in Wantach, NY before supporting Jordan Davis and Cole Swindell on select dates through the fall.
After penning his first song at 6 and scoring a publishing deal at 16, the Country prodigy wrote five of the six songs on his Zach Crowell-produced debut collection DIDN’T GO TOO FAR (The Valory Music Co.). Featuring his first Top 40 hit “Learn From It,” viral smash “I Hate Alabama,” and GOLD-certified “Take It Slow,” the charismatic effort laid an artistic foundation that earned Smith 2022 Artist to Watch status from Spotify, Amazon Music and Opry NextStage, while also making him the only Country artist on Pandora’s Ten List 2022 and securing 2023 recognition from MusicRow Next Big Thing, CMT Listen Up, and more. As Smith continues to grow up in full view of his fans – both on the page and the stage – CMT calls him “an unstoppable force to be reckoned with.” Looking ahead, he promises fans a new batch of “next level” music, further mixing in-the-moment energy with timeless meaning.
