Canaan Smith

“Hole In A Bottle“ (Canaan Smith, Brett Beavers, Dan Couch) – I think this one is the most accessible, it’s called “Hole In The Bottle” -- Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Country
Hometown: Williamsburg, Virginia
Born: Canaan Lee Smith on  August 24, 1982 (age 32)
Canaan Lee is singer-songwriter signed with Mercury Records (division of UMG Recordings, Inc). His debut single, "We Got Us" (#44 Hot Country Songs) was released January 24, 2012. His sophomore single, >> "Love You Like That"  (5 million+ views on YouTube) came out on July 21, 2014 which charted at #13 on Billboard Hot Country Songs and #12 on Country Airplay.
He was a reality television contestant on The Amazing Race, Smith and his girlfriend at the time, Mika Combs, were the sixth team to be eliminated in the 15th season.

In 2014 Smith became engaged to his long time girlfriend Christy Hardesty and Smith took the words of his romantic single "Love You Like That" to heart when he tied the knot with her over the Labor Day Weekend (Aug 30, 2014). The couple got married on the front steps of a venue called The Taylor Mansion in Columbus, OH. Smith said his new wife was “fun and can outdrink most of his guy friends. "She holds the parking lot record at Ohio State for shot gunning beer, so she's a trooper," added the proud groom.

Website Blurb: Smith is an intriguing blend of the everyday working man and rowdy thrill seeker with a poet’s heart and pirate’s ambition. A native of Williamsburg, Virginia, he grew up singing along to everything from George Strait to Rage Against the Machine. He relocated to Nashville during college and began to perform around Music City’s local bars. He landed a publishing deal with Disney Music and teamed with Brett Beavers (Dierks Bentley) to produce his Mercury Records debut.
In addition to writing for his album, Smith co-wrote Love and Theft’s top ten hit “Runaway” and co-wrote Jason Aldean’s “Black Tears” with FGL’s Tyler Hubbard as well as “Party Wasn’t Over” with Hubbard and Cole Swindell.
Canaan Smith is a songwriter of considerable depth and authenticity, and he possesses a voice that drives audiences to their feet dancing one minute and can have them crying in their beer the next. “I’m an everyday guy, but I want people to see the layers,” he said. “I’ve known my share of pain and I’ve got a lot to say.”

Smith released a self titled 5 track  EP (MCA Nashville) on March 24, 2015. He co-wrote all five tracks with Brett Beavers.
He will join Dierks Bentley’s Sounds of Summer 2015 tour with Kip Moore.  
Canaan has a new album BRONCO set for release on June 23, 2015 - Amazon UK - Amazon.com
