Continuing to super serve his loyal fan base as he readies his forthcoming full-length debut, CONNER SMITH drops a fresh acoustic version of his bluegrass-inflected twang rocker “Creek Will Rise” (The Valory Music Co.) today. The blood-pumping single is currently US Top-20-and-rising at Country radio while amassing nearly 40 million streams to date with Country Central declaring it “an absolute barn-burner from the first note.” Listen to “Creek Will Rise (Acoustic)” here.

Smith continues to put on his signature “high energy fan forward show” (All Country News) on the road as direct support on Cole Swindell’s TWELVE TOUR, following a packed year touring coast to coast with some of Country’s biggest artists including Luke Bryan, Chase Rice and Jordan Davis. Next up, he’ll embark on his second headline trek of 2023 on the CREEK WILL RISE TOUR with special guests Lauren Watkins and John Morgan beginning November 2 in Athens, Georgia.


Just 23 years old and already a seasoned veteran of Nashville’s elite songwriting community, Conner Smith has become one of Country’s most hotly-anticipated new artists – an uncommon talent mixing prime-of-life passion with old-soul perspective. After penning his first song at 6 and scoring a publishing deal at 16, the Country prodigy wrote five of the six songs on his Zach Crowell-produced 2022 debut collection DIDN’T GO TOO FAR (The Valory Music Co.). Featuring his first Top 40 hit “Learn From It,” viral smash “I Hate Alabama,” and GOLD-certified fan-favorite “Take It Slow,” the charismatic effort laid an artistic foundation that earned Smith 2022 Artist to Watch status from Spotify, Amazon Music and Opry NextStage, while also making him the only Country artist on Pandora’s Ten List 2022 and securing 2023 recognition from MusicRow Next Big Thing, CMT Listen Up, and more. Deemed an “an unstoppable force to be reckoned with” by CMT, Smith’s authentic storytelling and rich, soulful voice has resonated with audiences nationwide, earning him a dedicated and passionate following. He’s come to know exactly what his fans want – and he continues to deliver “next level” music to them as reflected with his blood bumping Top-20-and-climbing single “Creek Will Rise,” which has quickly amassed nearly 40 million streams to date. Recently touring alongside Thomas Rhett, Parker McCollum, Ryan Hurd, Chase Rice and Jordan Davis. Smith spent the summer on Luke Bryan’s COUNTRY ON TOUR and is currently servicing as direct support on Cole Swindell’s TWELVE TOUR before kicking off his second headline trel of the year – CREEK WILL RISE TOUR with special guests Lauren Watkins and John Morgan.
