Hey this is Conner Smith, and that was my new single “Roulette On The Heart” with Hailey Whitters.

Conner: I’m going to start with ‘Roulette On The Heart,’ that’s one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. I just love the classic country storytelling of it, and I knew right away that it would feel even more special if we could have a female vocal on it and the first person I thought of was Ms. Hailey Whitters and we called her and she said yes.
Hailey: I think the first time I heard you play this song was on a show we were playing together in Kansas and instantly like the first time I ever heard it too I was like, I think I even told you, I was like “dang”
Conner: No, I remember you leaned over and you were like “that song’s really special,” and in the back of my mind I was like well good I’m about to ask you in a week to be on it, and so a year later here we are.
Hailey: Ahhh look at you! That’s sweet. Meant to be.

Just 23 years old and already a seasoned veteran of Nashville’s elite songwriting community, Conner Smith has emerged as one of Country’s most hotly-anticipated artists – one knows the past can still inspire the present, and good things come to those who wait. An uncommon talent mixing prime-of-life passion with old-soul perspective, the rising singer/ songwriter has spent 15 years matching a honeyed vocal to propulsive hints of bluegrass and the warmth of ‘90s Country, an instant-classic sound infused with riveting modern appeal. Moving Country forward while remembering its all-natural roots, Smith’s crtically-acclaimed full-length debut album SMOKY MOUNTAINS  (The Valory Music Co.), available now, is meant to stand the test of time. Featuring GOLD-certified “Take It Slow,” viral hit “I Hate Alabama,” multi-week UK chart-topper “Creek Will Rise” and “Roulette On The Heart” featuring Hailey Whitters, his deeply personal 12-song project is one of classic style and contemporary spirit, and a reflection of the artist himself. These songs, among others, laid an artistic foundation that earned Smith 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 secured 2023 recognition from MusicRow Next Big Thing and CMT  Listen Up as well as joining the CRS New Faces Class of 2024. Deemed “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. Recently touring alongside some of Country’s biggest artists including Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Chase Rice and Jordan Davis, the “future entertainer of the year” (Morning Hangover) puts on his signature “high energy fan forward show” (All Country News) while headlining his CREEK WILL RISE TOUR.
