The first time a country singer hears their song on the radio is always a special and momentous occasion. However, for Smithfield's Trey Smith, certain circumstances made the moment even more memorable.
At the time of the big moment, the country duo was on a radio tour, traveling across the country to promote themselves and their music. When the time came for Smith and musical partner Jennifer Fiedler to hear themselves on the radio for the first time, not only were the bandmates together, but the station that played their song was in Smith's hometown of Houston, Texas.
