Joanna Smith / Kim Paige
September 22, 2017 @ 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Jo Smith is an all-American southern girl, with a heart full of charm and a soul full of songs. Her sound is a fresh blend of the Country and Motown music she grew up listening to in South Georgia. Soul singers Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin spun on her Dad’s vinyl, along with country legends The Judds and Keith Whitley, all influencing Smith to pick up the guitar and find her own unique voice.
Now, forging her trail in Nashville, Smith has teamed up with award winning super-producers, Shane McAnally (Kacey Musgraves, Sam Hunt) and Jesse Frasure (Thomas Rhett, Meghan Trainor) to create her new EP, “Introducing Jo Smith”. The lead single “Old School Groove” was selected as the first 2017 female Highway Find on Sirius XM’s The Highway Channel and is currently available on all digital retailers.
Since graduating from Belmont University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in songwriting, Nashville singer/songwriter Kim Paige has been honing her voice and sharpening her lyrics to fuse the gap between yesterday’s classic country sound of Dolly Parton and today’s contemporary sound of Miranda Lambert. Falling somewhere in the middle, Kim’s smooth vocals and witty words will surely cause a smile and a laugh-out-loud at the same time. This unique and humorous style sets her apart from the masses of country singers and songwriters in Nashville today.
