“I’m Not Gonna Cry” 2020 Out Now!
June 5, 2020
Available now on all streaming platforms is Corey’s new single “I’m Not Gonna Cry”. Originally release in 2003, this re-imagined version is dedicated to the graduating class on 2020. Here is an excerpt from Corey regarding the release: “Ok, Class of 2020, this one’s for you. Though Covid has robbed you of a great rite of passage, and all its traditional pomp and circumstance, you have met it with high spirits and good humor and been a source of inspiration for us all.”

Corey smith, the fan-made man, has sold over 1 million concert tickets, 1.5 million digital singles and over 220,000 albums. Corey’s Spotify channel has amassed over 5.76 million listeners with more than 73 million streams and is currently averaging over 1.13 million streams each month. Smith has amassed an unfailingly devout fan base, not only in his native Southeast region, but all around the nation, simply by telling it the way it is. He has released 10 albums—including 2011’s Top 20 release “The Broken Record”. Corey has written every word on every album and has produced 9 out of 10 of the records. In Summer 2015, Corey teamed up with producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) for his album, “While the Gettin’ Is Good,” released on Sugar Hill Records. Smith’s concerts, which were documented on his last live record, “Live in Chattanooga”, regularly sell out, with audiences singing along to such fan favorites as the coming-of-age anthem “Twenty-One,” the nostalgic time warp “If I Could Do It Again” and the group hug “I Love Everyone”. Corey has a consistent touring history, usually hitting around 120 dates per year, but recently has taken a pause form touring to undergo a risky eye surgery. During his time at home, Corey has begun releasing solo acoustic tracks every week, directly to his devoted fan base via his YouTube series Songsmith Weekly and all music streaming platforms. These tracks, such as “Cellophane”, “Where I Wish I Was” and “Going Blind” have re-energized his fan base. Corey is planning in compiling these releases in a more traditional album format later this year and is looking forward to hitting the road soon in support of all this new music.
