Singer-songwriter Canaan Smith had himself a Thursday, announcing that he signed with Florida Georgia Line’s newly launched record label, Round Here Records and releasing his first song since 2017, “Beer Drinking Weather”. The track is co-written by Smith, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of FGL and Corey Crowder.
“It’s always beer drinkin’ weather out here / We get it pouring like a storm out here / No there ain’t nothing better whenever we’re together / It’s beer drinkin’ weather out here” The song is comparable to an early Florida Georgia Line song, being all about good vibes and partying.
Announced earlier this week, Smith is the first artist signed to Round Here Records and according to a tweet by FGL, he will be the flagship artist of the record label. Although Hubbard and Kelley will remain on Big Machine Records, they look forward to championing artists like Smith who they truly believe in. The new venture is in addition to Tree Vibez Music, the duos publishing arm which was founded in 2015.
Smith released his debut album Bronco in 2015 which featured the hit single, “Love You Like That” that was certified platinum and hit number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Smith is currently on the Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour with FGL and has already been performing this song for us during his sets. Look out for releases of other new songs the 36-year old has been performing at his shows including “Country Boy Things” and “Poor Decisions”.
