Round Here Records’ PLATINUM-hitmaker Canaan Smith is kicking off the new year by bringing his latest reflective tune, “Cabin In The Woods,” to life in a brand-new video – world premiering exclusively on CMT, CMT Music and CMT.com tomorrow (1/8).
Serving as Smith’s co-directing debut alongside Kurt Ozan, the stunning clip was shot in McEwen, Tennessee, and perfectly follows the lyrics of Smith’s rootsy, midtempo tune, as it takes fans on a visual trip down memory lane to a backwoods hideaway – a place that Smith couldn’t get enough of.
“The whole filming process was a blast,” Smith explains. “I feel most at home when I’m out in the middle of nowhere, just enjoying nature – and that’s exactly what we did. Plus, since this was my first time co-directing, it was that much more exciting for me. I hope fans enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
Co-produced by Smith alongside Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, and written by Smith, Kelley, Josh Miller and David Garcia, “Cabin In The Woods” is the latest introduction to Smith’s new musical chapter and has continued to garner praise since its release, with Sounds Like Nashville hailing, “the rustic track transports listeners far away from the modern rat race.” Continuing to channel his Virginia roots, the track follows “Colder Than You” – a “solidly country” (MusicRow), “deliberately stripped down” (Rolling Stone) tune that highlights Smith’s “raw tone” (Billboard) and serves as a “slow grooving, tear-in-your-beer waltz for the modern era” (Sounds Like Nashville).
And this is just the beginning, as Smith is set to roll out a brand-new project in the coming months.
KEEP UP WITH CANAAN SMITH
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,” his latest release, “Cabin In The Woods,” serves as yet another taste of what’s to come from this new chapter in Smith’s musical career, with more new music expected to release in the coming months. A burgeoning Tree Vibez Music songwriter, the Virginia native’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 shortly after announcing his partnership with RHR – “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, Smith embarked on his headlining POUR DECISIONS TOUR last year.https://www.countryschatter.com/2021/01/tune-in-canaan-smith-premieres-cabin-in-the-woods-on-cmt/CMTNew ReleasesPress ReleaseVideos"Cabin In The Woods" "Colder Than You",Caanan Smith,CMT,cmt music,McEwen,Music Row,Pour Decisions tour
