Smith announces debut coming in February

Tuesday, November 8, 2022 – Arista Nashville/Sony Music Nashville singer Nate Smith announced today that he will release his debut, self-titled album on Feb. 17, 2023.

"It has been so much fun making this album, and I really believe in every one of these songs," Smith said. "Releasing an album has always been a goal of mine, but at the end of the day it's really not about me. It's about being able to reach other people with music that means something."

"I'm not trying to be cool or reinvent the wheel, or chase musical trends. I'm going after the heart of the matter."

The 20-song release will include his current single "Whiskey On You," which is Gold-certified and Top 15 at country radio plus recent releases "I Found You" and "I Don't Wanna Go To Heaven."

Smith grew up in Paradise, Cal., which suffered the most destructive fire in the state's history. Following the fire, Smith turned to music to cope, going on a cross-country road trip to Nashville to pursue music. Coincidentally, the announcement of his debut album arrives on the four-year anniversary of the start of the fire (Nov. 8, 2018).

Last week, Smith said he would join Thomas Rhett on his Home Team Tour 23. The tour will kick off May 4 in Des Moines, Ia., hitting 40 cities next summer.

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. ...
