Caitlyn Smith, an in-demand songwriter who has penned tunes for Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Cassadee Pope, Kenny Rogers and Meghan Trainor, is set to release her own music.

Caitlyn SmithThe singer-songwriter released five tracks on Friday (July 8) from her Paul Moak-produced, full-length debut album, Starfire, expected early next year. The tracks include the breakup ballad “Do You Think About Me,” the title track, and her rendition of “Tacoma,” which was also recorded by Garth Brooks for his 2014 project Man Against Machine.

Her catalog also includes Jason Aldean’s “It Ain’t Easy,” “You Can’t Make Old Friends” by Parton and Rogers, “Wasting All These Tears” by Pope, and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” by Trainor and John Legend.

“I’ve been writing and working hard for the last couple years on this project, and am so excited to finally be getting this music out there. It was extremely fulfilling to create this new music without boundaries or any agenda other than making music that I love,” Smith says. “It also feels quite magical to be releasing a handful of these new songs the same month as having my first child. A time of life I will never forget.”

“Before You Called Me Baby” from the EP is part of Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. CMT will premiere the music video for “Tacoma” on Tuesday, July 12. Smith co-wrote the track with Bob DiPiero.

Caitlyn Smith performs "This Town Is Killing Me" at a listening party for her new EP Starfire, available July 8. Industry guests were invited to a sneak peek of the EP at her publishing firm, Cornman Music on Thursday, July 7 in Nashville.
