As powerhouse duo Smith & Wesley ready their second album For Better or For Worse to hit, they and their Dream Walkin’ Records label have signed with national distribution company BFD via Orchard to handle all aspects of their current and future releases. The new album is due out this fall.
“I have had the opportunity to get to know Scott and Todd over the past couple of years and have watched them put together a top-notch team to promote, market and publicize their music,” said BFD/Orchard’s Chuck Rhodes. “With hit singles and video views online in the millions, we wanted to partner with Smith & Wesley to offer our distribution services and become part of this great team! We are looking forward to an upcoming release later this year.”
Smith & Wesley’s new For Better or For Worse album includes the Top 30 single The Little Things,” their first Top 25 single “Superman ‘For A Day'” and current single “Hook Line & Sinker.” Brothers Scott and Todd Smith, who named the duo after their father, Wesley Smith, donated proceeds from the digital sale of “Superman” to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“We can’t thank BFD and Chuck Rhodes enough for believing in this band and our music,” said Smith & Wesley. “We feel like we have put together an incredible team, and this new relationship will take us to new levels and beyond.”
Deeply rooted in their North Georgia heritage, the Smith & Wesley sound speaks to people of all walks of life. In addition to their chart successes, all of their single releases have topped research categories to become industry and fan favorites alike. The duo wrote or co-wrote 11 cuts on their debut album, Choices & Chances. Their “Sweet Life” single hit Top 30 on the Music Row
CountryBreakout chart, and their third single, “You’re The One,” hit #27 on the same chart and #46 Billboard Country Indicator Chart. In addition to being a top-researching single with all demographics, the heart-tugging “You’re The One” became an in-demand wedding song.
