Smith spent the summer touring with Thomas Rhett and will hit the road this fall with Cole Swindell. Following his headline tour next year, Smith will join Morgan Wallen for his ONE NIGHT AT A TIME 2024 tour. He will open for Wallen in stadiums across the country, including stops in Arlington (TX), Charlotte, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Nashville, Oxford (MS) and Tampa. Smith will also return to Stagecoach next year after his debut appearance at the festival this year.
Following his Platinum-certified, multi-week No. 1 hit “Whiskey On You,” Smith’s current single “World On Fire” has reached Top 20 at country radio. With over 80 million global streams to date, the breakup hit is one of 26 tracks on Smith’s self-titled album / deluxe version released on April 28. Upon its release, the project achieved the largest album debut from a new artist this year (2023), as well as the largest full length album debut from a new artist since 2020. The album hit #6 on Billboard’s Country albums chart and #30 overall on the Billboard Top 200. Nate Smith also includes RIAA Gold-certified hits “Wreckage” and “Under My Skin.”
Press raved about the album, with The Tennessean sharing that it “lends itself well to country’s radio-ready expectations, but also is so well-delivered that it explodes them, too… Smith’s vocal is a flexible instrument that is so genuinely powerful that, aided by intentional musicianship, it achieves songs that feel familiar in a heart-warming and instantly connective manner.” Billboard lauded his “formidable, rangy and raw vocal power” while Holler noted that his range bears “resemblance to country legend Vince Gill, whose vocal control could cause fainting spells three states over,” adding that “this is Smith’s superpower.”
Smith, who is known for his “strong voice that grips a lyric with ferocity” (Billboard), was nominated for NEW MALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR at the 58th ACM Awards in addition to his 2023 CMT Awards nomination for BREAKTHROUGH MALE VIDEO OF THE YEAR for his smash single “Whiskey On You.”
