After penning his first song at six and scoring a publishing deal at 16, Smith, 23, wrote five of the six songs on his Zach Crowell-produced 2022 debut collection "Didn't Go Too Far" (The Valory Music Co.). He had a hit with "Learn From It."
Watkins, 24, a Nashville native, signed with Nicolle Galyon's Songs & Daughters Records.
Morgan has enjoyed success as a songwriter. Jason Aldean cut eight of his songs, including Aldean's hit with Carrie Underwood, "If I Didn't Love You" and a second number one, "Trouble With a Heartbreak." Aldean ended up signing Morgan to Night Train Records, his imprint with BBR Music Group, and tapped him to open his Rock n' Roll Cowboy Tour in 2022.
