Round Here Records’ CANAAN SMITH flexes backroad muscle in his brand-new track, “Country Boy Things,” another full throttle blast of energy hitting the scene.
Standing tall as an unapologetic chest-thumper, “Country Boy Things” has a single, anthemic focus – paying respect to the blue-collar Joes of the world who know exactly who they are and what they’re about.
Co-written by Smith with Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley, Jaren Johnston of The Cadillac Three and Corey Crowder, the tune’s loud-and-proud guitars, hard-charging drums, and roughneck lyrics celebrate country-living and backwoods essentials – from muddy tires and bonfire hangouts to working hard and having an independent spirit.
“This song reminds me of moving to Nashville – when those four-on-the-floor songs were making a comeback,” says Smith. “I’m proud of the way the band came together and made this one burn. Banjo, baby!”

The track follows Smith’s return to the spotlight with his hopped-up and chilled-to-the-max “Beer Drinkin’ Weather,” highlighted by Rolling Stone Country as an easygoing “summertime throwdown.” Serving as the beginning of an elevated new chapter in his career, the tune’s music video, filled with suds and sun, premiered on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown last weekend
