Jo Smith Drops ‘Old School Groove’

SMACKSongs artist Jo Smith has released the first song from her debut EP for the label. “Old School Groove” is a Motown-inspired torcher set to steel guitar. It was revealed as a Highway Find on SiriusXM’s “The Highway” earlier today (March 17).

The four-song project, titled Introducing Jo Smith, was helmed by award-winning producers Jesse Frasure (Thomas Rhett) and Shane McAnally (Sam Hunt, Kacey Musgraves), masters of blending classic R&B with contemporary country.

“Old School Groove,” which was written by Ben Burgess, Bobby Huff and Smith, yearns for the 1960s when a lover’s heart could spin like “vintage vinyl.”

“I love how this song connects with people,” says Smith. “There is a reason that vinyl is making a comeback, and I think this song captures the essence of that time.”

Smith has a lot to celebrate. Earlier this week, the Country Music Association announced that Smith will perform on the 2017 CMA Fest Broadway Stage.
