Smithfield Strip Down for Acoustic ‘Nothing But the Night’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Smithfield's current single is all about stripping down, so it's appropriate that they went acoustic for a new performance of the song.
The duo currently reside in the Top 10 on SiriusXM's The Highway with "Nothing But the Night." They have been designated a Highway Find, garnering the support of fans with the fresh, fun sound of the song, which unabashedly celebrates the idea of a daring couple who "find a little spot where the water's right / And creep on in wearing nothing but the night."
Band members Jennifer Fiedler and Trey Smith wrote the song with Ben Stennis, and they perform the fun summertime track (with all their clothes in place) live in the studio in the clip above, with Smith accompanying them on guitar for an arrangement that focuses on their unique vocal harmony blend. The clip is premiering exclusively with Taste of Country.
"'Nothing But the Night' is a fun and flirty song about skinny dippin'," the duo tell us. "It's the song that helped us find the Smithfield sound, and it's meant to be the perfect song to add to your playlists this summer."
The Texas natives have been named an Artist to Watch by both People.com and the Huffington Post, and CMT named Smithfield to its Artist Discovery Initiative program. They have opened for Eric Paslay, Scotty McCreery, Jana Kramer, Sara Evans, Dustin Lynch and Craig Campbell, and made their Grand Ole Opry debut in May, with more Opry performances scheduled for June 25, July 8 and July 16.
The official music video for "Nothing But the Night" will premiere on CMT in June, and Smithfield's debut EP — for which they co-wrote all eight songs — is currently available at iTunes.
