Smith debuts "Whiskey on You" video

Thursday, July 21, 2022 – Nate Smith debuted the music video for his new single, "Whiskey On You," today.

Directed by Chris Ashlee, the video stars Smith along with TikTok creator Katie "Demps" Dempsey, who plays the singer's crazy ex-girlfriend. The video follows the breakup between the two during Smith's band's practice. The garage band turned Nashville superstars then take the stage at a jam-packed Whiskey Jam in Loser's parking lot, featuring real footage from Smith's performance last month.

"I am thrilled for the 'Whiskey On You' music video to come out," Smith said. "I really wanted everyone to get to know my fun side. I couldn't have had a better costar than Demps, She absolutely crushed it and will definitely make you laugh."

Smith will kick off his opening stint on Brett Eldredge's Songs About You Tour this weekend.

Smith combines soul and rock in his music. A California native, Smith learned guitar at 13. Garth Brooks, Elvis Presley and Bob Seger were among his influences.. He first went to Nashville in his early 20s, but returned home.

In 2018, Smith lost everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire which tore through Paradise, Cal., the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state's history. Although his family was safe, he struggled to cope and turned back to music. He did a month-long road trip across the U.S. to Nashville, writing music and playing dive bars along the way.

He released the song "Wildfire" and landed a publishing deal with Sony ATV. Since then, he's released new music including "Sleeve" and "Under My Skin." He later released "Raised Up" and "I Don't Wanna Go To Heaven."

It's a whole lot of pounding and roaring because it – like many (too many?) contemporary country albums – is extra-long. The deluxe edition, in fact, sports 26 songs and clocks in at nearly an hour-and-a-half. All this loud music is just a bit much, though, by the time all's said and done. ...
