Country music’s hottest rising duo and one of Sirius XM’s prestigious picks for a “Highway Find”, Smithfield will be the Grand Marshals and featured entertainment at this year’s Okatoma Festival, scheduled for May 4 in Collins.
Smithfield released their new single, “Our World,” to country radio recently. “Our World,” written by Jaden Michaels, Jordan Minton and Ben Johnson, is available now at all digital retailers. “Our World” was produced by David Fanning. “Our World,” an anthemic song capturing the feelings of youth and being invincible against the world, again embraces their unique energy-charged and unparalleled vocal chemistry between the longtime childhood friends Trey Smith and Jennifer Fielder.
Trey’s rock-influenced vocals blending with the sounds of Jennifer’s classic country influences add an even deeper dimension to the lyrics and energy in their new single “Our World.”
“We are so excited to not only be releasing a brand-new radio single, but a brand-new EP in 2019,” said Smithfield. “We always try to create music that connects with our fans as much as it does with us. We can’t wait to share what’s new in ‘Our World’!”
Smithfield will release their new EP We Make Our Own on March 1 and will include all new songs from the Texas-born singer/songwriters. “Our World” will be included only on the physical EP which is also available March 1. We Make Our Own, the title track of the EP, represents and is symbolic of Trey and Jennifer’s philosophy and personal anthem in how they live their life and how they handle their music careers by paving and making their own way and doing it all a little differently. The EP will be released by Deluge Records. Smithfield has teamed to work with multi Grammy-award winning producer/songwriter Seth Mosley and Mike “X.” O’Connor to produce and co-write the EP. Their credits including producing albums for Francesca Battistelli, for KING & COUNTRY, Newsboys, Mandisa, Tyminski, Jaci Velasquez and another country duo High Valley among many others.
“Our World” is the follow-up to their critically-acclaimed single “Hey Whiskey” which garnered rave reviews and was the song that caught the eye of not only Sirius XM and CMT but it put them on several “Artists To Watch” lists including People, Billboard, Huffington Post and Rolling Stone among others. Rolling Stone included “Hey Whiskey” as one of the “Best Country/Americana Songs” in their picks of the week and the Grand Ole Opry invited them to make their Opry debut and CMT championed the duo including them in their Artist Discovery Program to name a few. Smithfield was founded in 2011 with a dream as big as their home state of Texas. Vocalists Trey and Jennifer took the stage by storm with their memorable music and stunning harmonies. Having grown up together, their on-stage chemistry is undeniably genuine and natural. Country duos are unique in the music industry. Two voices have to blend perfectly together, and that combination is often hard to find, even in two great singers. Against all odds, the duo has continued to persevere with their music and develop their sound. Trey and Jennifer have found that with a lot of hard work and passion that anything can be accomplished.
After only one year in Nashville, Smithfield had already landed opening gigs for established artists including Kane Brown, Scotty McCreery, Granger Smith, Dustin Lynch, Brothers Osborne and Old Dominion. Mixing the heavily rock influenced background of Trey and the classical country tendency of Jennifer, Smithfield creates a unique blend of country sound that’s different and compelling.
