Caitlyn Smith is a name hopefully many of you are going to start hearing more soon. The longtime songwriter just inked a deal with the revived Monument Records this past week. Sony Music is the one who has brought it back to life and has tabbed Sandbox CEO Jason Owen and hit songwriter Shane McAnally to be the co-presidents of Monument. It’s going to be an imprint of Sony Music Entertainment. Smith along with Walker Hayes are the first signees.
Smith released a fantastic EP titled Starfire last year and I highly recommend checking it out. Smith recently performed a track off the album in a bank vault, “Before You Called Me Baby.” Give it a watch and get a glimpse of an artist I believe to be one of the next big deals in country music.
