Round Here Records’ Canaan Smith washes down goodbye with his brand-new single, “Colder Than You” – available on all streaming platforms, digital retailers, and hitting the Country radio airwaves.
Co-produced by Smith alongside Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line and written by Smith, Corey Crowder and Jared Mullins, the mid-tempo track puts a twangy twist on heartbreak, as it tells the story of a man who lost his lover.
“We wrote ‘Colder Than You’ a little over a year ago, and I just kept coming back to it,” Smith explains. “To me, this song leads with its lyrics, and as a songwriter, that’s something I always look for. I love the clever wordplay – I’ve always been a sucker for that – and I’m just really proud of how country it feels, overall. Hope everyone who’s been in a bad breakup gets a laugh out of this one and enjoys listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.”
“Colder Than You” not only serves as Smith’s first single back on Country radio since 2017, but it also marks his valiant return to his Virginia roots, drawing inspiration from the backcountry-sound of his home state with its traditional Country vibe.
