Round Here Records’ PLATINUM-hitmaker CANAAN SMITH bottles up bygones with a homemade heartbreak remedy in his brand-new video for “Colder Than You” out today.
Serving as the perfect visual for Smith’s “solidly country” (MusicRow) track, the clip highlights the Virginia native’s love for the great outdoors alongside his drink of choice – a nice, cold beer. Directed by Kurt Ozan, the video finds Smith creek-side in northern Georgia’s stretch of the Blue Ridge Mountains, brewing and bottling what he describes as “beer-shine,” while singing along to the twangy backcountry-infused anthem – and rumor has it that Smith might have something new brewing off-camera as well.
Co-produced by Smith alongside Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, and written by Smith, Corey Crowder and Jared Mullins, the mid-tempo track tells the story of a man who lost his lover and finds solace in a 12-pack of cold ones – with Billboard raving, “From the moment it opens with an impersonal note on the refrigerator door, ‘Colder Than You’ pairs two familiar country themes — a broken heart and a potent swig of alcohol — praising the latter for its frosty refreshment and zinging the woman behind the former for her icy disposition.”
“Colder Than You” has been stacking praise since its release, with fans and critics alike applauding the “slow grooving, tear-in-your-beer waltz for the modern era” (Sounds Like Nashville) and raising a glass to Smith’s “honey-and-bourbon-drenched southern drawl” (The Virginian-Pilot). Continuing to pick up steam, the rootsy track is also featured on several of the top Country streaming playlists – from Spotify’s New Boots and All About Country to Pandora’s Backroads and New Country Now stations.
ABOUT CANAAN SMITH Canaan Smith is back with his clever new single, “Colder Than You”- a backcountry-infused, twangy twist on heartbreak – or lack thereof. Continuing to build on his signature sound, which he describes as “Canaan Country,” more new music is expected to release this fall. A burgeoning Tree Vibez Music songwriter, Smith’s credit is on hits by Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, Mason Ramsey and more, which paved the way for his signing to Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line’s record label, Round Here Records. Debuting with a fresh set of songs – “Beer Drinkin’ Weather,” “Country Boy Things”, “Life Ain’t Fair,” and “Pour Decisions” – the releases follow Smith’s 2014 PLATINUM-certified #1 “Love You Like That” and fan-favorite “Hole in a Bottle.” A featured performer on FGL’s 2019 CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR, the Williamsburg, Virginia-native wrapped his headline POUR DECISIONS TOUR earlier this year.
