Corey Smith, a regular at the Newport Music Hall, is coming once again to play his wide variety of country music. He has a pure and refreshing approach to writing country music. His songs range from picking up girls on the backroads in his truck to reminiscing on a true love’s first dance. Smith lays it all out there for the audience.
His three-piece band looks like a group of friends on stage. They don’t do anything fancy or over the top. Their performance is really all about the music. It is also clear how relaxed all the band members are on stage. They have just as good a time as the crowd. Smith isn’t afraid to have a jam session with his bassist or slow down the performance to engage the audience. Smith and his audience have a unique dynamic where they play the same venues on their tours as often as possible. They are with the venues they play and the crowds they get to see.
Smith’s most recent album While the Getting’ is Good is a complete feel-good album. There is not a sad song from start to finish (except maybe “Bend,” the last song on the album). So expect a show full of old hits and songs that, if you don’t already know them, you’ll be sure to get your hands on after the show.
