Concerts Presents: Corey Smith
Corey Smith was named one of country music's hottest new artists by Country Weekly
and Music Row Magazine and was featured on the cover of Pollstar as a Hotstar Top Artist.
He has hundreds of sold-out performances under his belt and a growing, dedicated fan-base
whose passion for Corey's music has led to some of the music industry's leading professionals
shaking their heads in astonishment at his rise as a touring sensation. A pure singer-songwriter,
who owns every word of every song in his catalog, Corey is in a league of his own in the country
world and commands the maturity and confidence to connect with crowds like few others can.
His newest release, Live in Chattanooga, showcases songs from across all seven of his previous
albums and demonstrates how he has managed to evolve stylistically while maintaining a powerful
bond with his fans. "I didn't intend on making this album. It just sort of happened. We pushed the
record that night and captured a little magic. It's just a stereo mix from the monitor desk, but you
can hear the energy in the room. It's unpolished, but that's why I like it. I think fans will too."
