“Side Effects” is the driving title track from Smith’s 2016 Top-Selling Canadian Country album (based on first week sales). Released last August and produced by studio ace and long-time collaborator Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line), “Side Effects” (604 Records), features 12 tracks, including the albums first #1 single “Autograph” – the only song to top the Country airplay charts from a Canadian Country artist in 2016. The album showcases Smith’s incredible artistry and confirms he’s in his own lane – earning critical acclaim, commercial success and one of the most talked about journeys in Canadian country music.
Last September, Smith joined superstar Keith Urban as special guest and direct support on the Canadian leg of his ripCORD World Tour. The tour included the first ever show to take place at the all-new Rogers Place in Edmonton, making Smith the first Canadian artist to step on the main stage. Smith is currently in the planning stage for his own 2017 cross-Canada tour.
