Canaan Smith Performs New Single on ‘Today’, Announces Headlining Tour
Canaan Smith introduced his new single, "Hole in a Bottle," on Monday's (Sept. 14) episode of Today, and also used the time to announce that he will be embarking on his first headlining trek.
Smith's Stompin' Grounds Tour will kick off on Nov. 6 in Charlotte, N.C., and run through mid-December. Three of the dates are part of the 2015 Taste of Country Christmas Tour, which also features Frankie Ballard, A Thousand Horses, Old Dominion and Chase Rice, each on their own set of shows. A complete list of Smith's headlining concerts is below, and details are available on his website.
"Hole in a Bottle," which you can hear below, is the second single from Smith's debut album, Bronco, which was released in June. The Virginia native co-wrote eight of the record's 11 tracks, but he says that he thinks each song, even the ones he didn't write, carries an important message.
“If I was not a singer of these songs, I would go buy these songs because I believe they’re country songs that people need to hear," Smith tells The Boot.
Video of the singer's "Hole in a Bottle" Today performance is available on the show's website.
Smith is currently wrapping up his time serving as an opening act, along with Maddie & Tae and Kip Moore, on Dierks Bentley's 2015 Sounds of Summer Tour. Bronco is available for purchase on Amazon and iTunes.
