Anthony Smith Biography

Anthony Smith is an American country music singer-songwriter and record producer. As a musician, Smith recorded one album (If That Ain't Country) on Mercury Nashville Records in 2002. The album produced three Top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. Although he has not recorded any other albums, he continues to write singles and produce albums for other artists. Anthony Smith's musical interests began at an early age, when he started writing gospel music; by age seven he had also learned to play guitar. At age nine, he had joined a band, and by age twelve he was arranging music at his church. Smith moved to Kentucky in his early 20s and joined several bands. Luke Lewis, the boss of Mercury Nashville Records, received a demo tape of Smith's music, and in 2000, he signed the artist to a record deal. Meanwhile, Smith wrote songs for other artists, including "Run" by George Strait; "I'm Tryin'" and "Chrome" by Trace Adkins; "Didn't I" by Montgomery Gentry; and "That's What Brothers Do" by Confederate Railroad. After exiting Mercury in 2003, Smith continued to write songs for other artists, in addition to producing Trick Pony's 2005 album R.I.D.E.. In 2007, two more songs co-written by Smith entered the charts: "Daisy" by Halfway to Hazard, "What Do Ya Think About That" by Montgomery Gentry. He also co-wrote Tim McGraw's 2008 "Kristofferson" with Reed Nielsen.
