Earlier this month his debut single “Whiskey On You” hit the top spot the US country radio charts which times perfectly for Nate Smith to take his music further afield as he heads across the pond for the first time in March to appear at C2C: Country to Country in London. The breakout track achieved the first multi-week number one on a debut single since 2019 on the Billboard Country Airplay, and since 2018 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart in addition to having sat at the top of the Canadian country radio chart for six weeks.
His journey to Nashville and the challenges he endured along the way are traceable in his gravelly tone, including losing his hometown of Paradise, California to Camp Fire, the deadliest and most destructive fire in the state’s history.
