Darden Smith, ‘Everything’ Lyric Video [Exclusive Premiere]

Prolific Austin-based singer-songwriter Darden Smith is premiering the lyric video for his song “Everything” exclusively for readers of The Boot. Readers can press play above to watch it.

A 30-year veteran of the roots music scene, Smith drew on a pile of old songs he’s written over the past few years, both by himself and with major talents such as Radney Foster and Bruce Robison, to produce the album on which “Everything” is the title track. The song itself showcases Smith’s exquisite lyricism and laid-back, folksy sound, while also offering a heavy dose of his own musical history.

Smith says that Everything is the kind of album that an artist just has to get off his chest.

“I crossed the mid-century mark several years ago. I don’t see things the way I did before. More than ever, I believe in love, hope, faith and gratitude,” Smith explains. “It’s a view that only comes with time.

“The stakes are different now, more urgent. I have something to say, and somebody out there might need to hear it,” he continues. “I carried this question around for a few years. It took awhile, but I found the answer — everything.”

Everything was released on April 7. The album is available for purchase via Compass Records.
