Conner Smith was born to write songs. His mother interviewed songwriters as part of her work when he was a small child; he remembers being in her office, transfixed, listening to the tapes of the people most music lovers never saw telling the stories of where the songs came from. By the time he was 6, he was writing his own. By the time he was 9, he’d signed to BMI as a writer. Being so immersed in songs and where they came from, the 21-year-old rising artist is the rarest of all things: a songwriter from the inside out. Smith penned five of the six songs from his recent debut DIDN’T GO TOO FAR via The Valory Music Co. Produced by Zach Crowell, the collection features his first top 40 hit “Learn From It” and fan-favorite new single “Take It Slow,” which has already amassed nearly 40 million global streams to date. Continuing to feed his growing fanbase with new music, the Tennessee native fittingly released new song “Orange And White” in time for football season. Considered the sequel to his viral hit “I Hate Alabama,” Smith delivers a love story that could end up in the hall of fame. Smith has been giving fans a behind the scenes look at his meteoric rise, while showcasing his “wide vocal range and contagious pipes” (CMT) on Thomas Rhett’s BRING THE BAR TO YOU TOUR, with a five part video series available now on YouTube + Instagram. Named one of Spotify’s Hot Country Artist to Watch for 2022 and Amazon Music’s 2022 Amazon Artist To Watch, Smith is the only Country act named to the Pandora’ prestigious all-genre accolade, Artists To Watch 2022: The Pandora Ten list.
