Corey Smith at CMA Fest
April 13, 2016
The Country Music Association announced the Riverfront Stage lineup for CMA Fest this morning, and Smith will perform again on June 11. Last year Smith’s performance at the Riverfront Stage during CMA Fest was named “Best Capacity Crowd by Rolling Stone Country. Joe Hudak says, “Shortly into the Jefferson, Georgia singer-songwriter’s set on the Riverfront stage, CMA Fest organizers were forced to close the gates. Such was the demand to see Smith, an artist wildly popular among college kids (and those long since out of the dorms) for coming-of-age songs like ‘Twenty-One,’ ‘If I Could Do It Again’ and the winking ‘Ain’t Going Out Tonight.’ In a denim-vest-on-denim ensemble, Smith may have looked like the cool guy who never leaves campus, but his set revealed a soul-searching that only comes from equal parts experience and intellect.”
Smith will also continue to tour in support of his newest release, While The Gettin’ Is Good, featuring stops in Oklahoma, Arkansas and South Carolina, amongst others.
