Sugar Hill Records, a label known for sterling releases from artists including Lee Ann Womack, Joey + Rory, Kasey Chambers and Pat Green, has signed Georgia singer-songwriter Corey Smith to its artist roster. Smith’s forthcoming 10th album (and first for Sugar Hill), While The Gettin’ Is Good, is slated for a summer 2015 release.

Smith recorded the project at Ardent Studios (Memphis, Tenn.) and Ronnie’s Place (Nashville) with producer Keith Stegall, the producer for fellow Georgia artists including Alan Jackson and Zac Brown Band.

Smith says, “I’ve poured more blood, sweat, and tears into it, this album, than all of my other records combined. It has taken a tremendous toll on me both emotionally and financially. So I can’t stress enough how relieved and excited I am to have finally found the right label partner to release it with. In the end, it’s Sugar Hill’s high level of enthusiasm and commitment to putting the art ahead of the marketing that makes them the obvious choice. I’m grateful to call Sugar Hill home and looking forward to working with them.”

Sugar Hill’s General Manager and Senior Vice President Cliff O’Sullivan, says, “Over the past twelve years Corey Smith has been building an incredibly loyal following all over the country. We are delighted to welcome him to Sugar Hill.”
Sugar Hill Records is headquartered in Franklin, Tenn.
