"96.3 WLYB FM Meridian, MS"

"Bo Smith is a gifted writer and singer who brings a Southern sensibility to his lyrics and melodies. He's destined for great things." -Jacky Jack White - 96.3 WLYB FM Meridian, MS-.

“I love the toe-tapping rhythm of "Fall Together", and the fun guitar work that accents the main melody. His vocals are great, and the words are both fun and funny. This is awesome.” -ReverbNation Crowd Review-

“I love the theme of “Flatwoods Road”, it sounds like a legit and original country song. Everything from the vocals the lyrics are just perfect.” -ReverbNation Crowd Review-

“Flowers Are Gone” has this ethereal and dreamy quality about it and is well produced and really resonates with nostalgia quite well. Great for long drives as well! The swells are absolutely perfect and it makes it feel as though I am up in the clouds. Bo Smith has got himself a new fan.” -ReverbNation Crowd Review- - Jacky Jack White

Bio

Bo Smith is an American Singer/Songwriter from Choudrant, Louisiana. He spent 15 years as a professional, offshore and overseas, in the oilfield and decided to relocate to Austin, Texas from Louisiana in 2003. During his time in Austin, he obtained a degree in Audio Engineering and Music Production and worked with some of Austin’s popular musicians in the production of their music, until he decided it was time to give his own music a shot.

He teamed up with fellow singer/ songwriter and producer, Monty Russell of Ruston, Louisiana, and recorded his latest project Flowers Are Gone. The album was recorded at James Cook’s “Studio On The Ridge” in Pegram, TN. James Cook is known for his master skills as an audio engineer and producer as well as his role as Luke Bryan’s bass player. James recruited his fellow musicians, Luke Bryan’s band mates, Kent Sulcher (drums), Dave Ristrim (Steel Guitar), and Dan Cohen (lead Guitar), for the album production. Dave (P-Mo) Moore of Ruston, Louisiana ripped it up on Harmonica. It was an honor to record with some of the greatest musicians in the business.

The album, Flowers Are Gone, features it’s hit title track that takes country music to the edge, with haunting swells and psychedelic tones. Also included on the album, is a duet with Bo and co-writer, Bethany Raybourn, called “Dance Again”, a heartfelt song about the life of close friends of the family, Joe and Peggy Wilson; which was written after Bo spent time with Mrs. Peggy talking about the times she and her late husband had spent, in their younger years, dancing and enjoying their life together. The duet, “Flatwoods Road”, on the album, was performed by Bo and co-writer Rich Holloway. “Flatwoods Road” is about the Holloway Farm in Mississippi that has been in Rich’s family for hundreds of years, where he still resides today. Popular covers included on the album are, “Josie”, from Kris Kristofferson’s album, Border Lord, and “Clyde Played Electric Bass” from JJ Cale.

A lot of love and dedication went into this album and the hard work is paying off. The tracks “Flatwoods Road” and “Washed Away the Pain”, from the album, can be heard on several radio stations in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. The album is surely gaining momentum online.
