Corey Smith's last studio album, 2011's The Broken Record
, reached the top 30 on Billboard
's country, folk and rock charts. It's a testament to the wide appeal of the Georgia native, whose songs blend country, blues and a host of other influences with heartfelt lyrics about everyday life. Since quitting his job as a high school teacher to pursue music full time, Smith has built a loyal following by word of mouth, selling more than a million concert tickets in the last five years. His aptly named Movin' on Up Tour
comes as his career is reaching a new level: He's touring in support of his upcoming album, whose debut single, "Ain't Going Out Tonight," was released in October. Smith recorded the album with Grammy-winning producer Keith Stegall, whose other clients include the Zac Brown Band, George Jones and Alan Jackson.
