Mercury Nashville’s Canaan Smith spent the last few months on the road touring throughout the US and Europe, bringing his energetic live show to crowds across the globe. Noted for his “vocals… charisma and the performance ability to be one of the biggest stars in Country music” (Entertainment Focus), Canaan’s new single “Like You That Way,” goes for adds today at Country radio, following Friday’s world premiere of the song on People.com.
The upbeat Summer anthem has already garnered attention for its catchy lyrics, which include a lyrical nod to one of country’s leading ladies. As revealed to People.com, Canaan credits “my wife [Christy] and Miranda Lambert. I live with one and I listen to the other,” as part of the inspiration for the song.
“Like You That Way” follows Canaan Smith’s debut album, Bronco, which debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart and features the RIAA Platinum-Certified # 1 hit “Love You Like That.” The breakout smash “Love You Like That” marked one of the top streaming tracks from all new artists in country music, besting many songs from the genre’s superstars. After his own headlining tour of the US in the fall of 2016, Canaan embarked on an extensive sold-out tour of the U.K. with London based breakout country duo, The Shires. While there, his album skyrocketed to #3 on the U.K Charts. He recently returned to the UK in March 2017 for the C2C Festival, where he was consistently ranked as one of the festival’s best live acts. Canaan’s reputation as a road warrior and one of the top live performers in country music has earned him touring slots with Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert and Kip Moore, where he played well over 400 shows for more than a million fans. Named a “One to Watch” by The Huffington Post, Spotify, Yahoo Music and USA Today, Canaan continues his run with a full list of US and European headlining tour dates.
