Fresh off the heels of being named MusicRow’s 2020 Independent Artist of the Year, country music duo Smith & Wesley has announced a third studio album, Greetings from the Land of Y’all, to release Friday, Sept. 18 via BFD/Audium Nashville.
“The songs on this album represent a number of styles that Scott and I grew up on,” says the duo’s Todd Smith. “From the old school country vibe to the twin-guitar feel of southern rock to upbeat feel good tunes, Greetings from the Land of Y’all, like our two previous albums, remains true to who Scott and I are and remain to be. Shayne Hill and Cody McCarver did an excellent job of producing this album in the Smith & Wesley way.”
Brothers Scott and Todd Smith wrote five of the albums’ dozen songs.
“I am very excited with the progression and trajectory that we have been blessed with as artists,” explains Scott Smith. “Although we have typically written all the songs for the previous albums, it was exciting to invite other talented songwriters into the process for the development of this project. We look forward to the release of new music to our fans and hope to see them out on the road all across this great nation soon.”
“Land of Y’all,” the duo’s second single from the upcoming album, was written by Bernie Nelson and Phil O’Donnell.
