Corey Smith, the fan-made man, has sold over 1 million concert tickets, 1.5 million digital singles and over 220,000 albums. Smith has amassed an unfailingly devout fan base, not only in his native Southeast region, but all around the nation, simply by telling it the way it is. He has released 10 albums—including 2011’s Top 20 release The Broken Record. Corey has written every word on every album himself and he produced 9 out of 10 of the records. In Summer 2015, Corey teamed up with producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) for his album, “While the Gettin’ Is Good,”which was released on Sugar Hill Records. Smith’s concerts, which were documented on his last live record, Live in Chattanooga, regularly sell out, with audiences singing along to such fan favorites as the coming-of-age anthem “Twenty-One,” the nostalgic time warp “If I Could Do It Again” and the group hug “I Love Everyone.” Corey consistently tours, hitting around 120 dates per year and has begun releasing singles from his upcoming project, the Great Wide Underground.
There are no tractors, trucks or tailgates here! Growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Chris isn’t your average country singer. Like many kids, Chris grew up listening to whatever his parents listened to but in the Bandi household these were two very different styles! Whether it was rocking out to Bruce Springsteen in his dad’s car or singing along to Garth Brooks with his mom, music always played a big part in Chris’ life. Fast forward a few years and, like most kids, Chris couldn’t stand to listen to the same music as his parents. Being from St. Louis he had to know every word to Nelly’s “Country Grammer”, he also fell in love with artists such as Usher and Fall Out Boy. His mix of pop, rock and country separates him from most other artists out there. After graduating from Ole Miss and spending a few summers traveling back and forth from Oxford to Nashville, Chris decided it was time to make the move. Initially knowing only a few people in the Music City, his drive and determination were quickly noticed throughout town.
A few months after moving to Nashville, Chris began writing with hit songwriters Shane Minor (“Chillin’ It” – Cole Swindell, “Beautiful Mess” – Diamond Rio) and Monty Criswell (“Like Jesus Does” – Eric Church, “I Saw God Today” – George Strait). After a few writes, Monty brought Chris into the studio to provide vocals on several of Monty’s demos. This ultimately led to Chris being introduced to Grammy winning producer and engineer Julian King (Tim Mcgraw, Tyler Farr). Monty and Julian became believers in Chris’ work ethic and fresh country sound. Not long after, the three began working together to further promote Chris.
From almost empty bar rooms to fraternity parties to sold out shows, Chris has been captivating audiences everywhere he goes. Having opened for bands like The Marshall Tucker Band and LoCash, Chris’ stage presence and voice pull the audience in until they are all on their feet! Recently teaming up with Paradigm Talent Agency (Ed Sheeran, Eli Young, Toby Keith) Chris has been on the road touring all over the midwest and southeast regions.
