Mercury Records singer/songwriter Canaan Smith and Tyler Hubbard of the band Florida Georgia Line have the honor of having their song on superstar recording artist Jason Aldean’s new album Night Train which will release on October 16.
“I wrote this song with Tyler one day back in college at Belmont,” Smith says. “I never thought it would be cut by someone as great as Jason Aldean.”
He adds “I think he did a killer job. I respect Jason’s ability to stretch himself and push the envelope as far as songs and production go.”
In an interview for Billboard magazine, Aldean says “Honestly, I think it’s one of the most well-written songs on the record. Like ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ and songs like that, it allows us to branch off in a different direction and try something new.”
Smith has also written hits and cuts for other artists such as Love and Theft, Amy Grant/Billy Ray Cyrus and Craig Morgan.
