Smith returns with new single
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
– Canaan Smith, who had a hit single two years ago with "Love You Like That," returns with a new single "Like You that Way."
The song is apparently from Smith's upcoming second full-length release, although there was no word when that would be.
The 34-year-old Virginia native wrote the song with Jesse Frasure and Brett James. Kos Weaver produced the song with Frasure and Smith.
Smith released a self-titled EP in 2015 and a full-length, "Bronco," that June.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: Trampled by Turtles overcome sad songs
There's light in the darkness of Trampled by Turtles. The latter is in the subject matter of the songs - there's a lot of doom and gloom in these relationships. There doesn't seem to be a lot of happy moments. As if to underscore that, the stage was often saturated in dark hues.
So, where's the light? Well, despite the cup... »»»
