Troy Cartwright Shares New Single “How Smart I Am”

Troy Cartwright shares new single “How Smart I Am,” out now, March 22nd, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the new release below.

Troy Cartwright kicked off 2024 cementing his true sound and style in country music with his song, “Over You By Now.” Now, Cartwright is continuing to stay firmly planted in his artistry with another new release. His new song, “How Smart I Am” adds another layer to the singer-songwriter’s impressive talent.

“Another Friday, another whiskey // Last weekend she was sitting here with me // She gave me nothing // but second chances / so I don’t understand why I don’t understand it // ‘ Cause I can fix a truck if the truck won’t run // I can tell the time by the angle of the sun // Put a rod in my hand, ain’t a brag but I am lights out when I’m fishing not he lake // I did pretty good on my SAT // but I couldn’t ‘do the math right in front of me // I let a perfect girl slip through my hands // so that’ll tell you just how smart // just how smart I am”

While “Over You By Now” is a ballad, “How Smart I Am” is a mid-tempo track that feels fun to listen to despite the content of the song. Written by Cartwright with Zach Abend and Matt Rogers, “How Smart I Am” paints a picture of a downfall of a relationship and the mistakes that were made by the protagonist. The song feels stage-ready, a perfect addition to Cartwright’s growing catalog of music.
