On the heels of a career album (Lifted) earning critical acclaim, commercial success including a #1 single and an armful of JUNO and CCMA Award wins and nominations, Smith continues one of the most talked about journeys in Canadian country music with the newest marker, his third studio album “SIDE EFFECTS” (604 Records) set for release on September 2 and available for pre-order this Friday (8/19).

Produced by studio ace and long-time collaborator Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Chris Lane), “SIDE EFFECTS” features 12 tracks, penned by some of country music’s most popular songwriters including The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston who has written #1 songs for the likes of Tim McGraw and Keith Urban.
