When The Good Guys Win is his sophomore national release on BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records. The “Happens Like That” singer shared a little about recording this album with such a busy schedule.
“With most of 2016 and 2017 spent on tour, there wasn’t much time for working on an album,” says Smith. “In fact, we only spent three days in a real studio for an entire year’s worth of work. Instead, I set up a mobile studio in the back of my bus for all the writing, editing and even recording. I sang all of the lead vocals at home in Texas, and did a lot of file sharing back and forth with my co-producers. With the album evolving this way on the road, country fairs, parking lots, green rooms and hotel lobbies, it truly reflects the source of the inspiration: the fans. Without knowing it, my fans were involved in every step of this project and I believe they will hear that through the music. Looking back, I don’t think there could have been a better way to do it.”
Pre-order starts October 6.
The 14-track album is produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells and Granger Smith.
