Daniel Smith Hits the Emotional Bullseye Again With His Stirring Ballad “Sometimes Love”
As regularly as spring rolls around, Daniel Smith emerges from his winter labors to deliver another mood-setting song to his expanding circle of fans. This spring the song is “Sometimes Love,” a melodic but sobering observation about our common emotional vulnerabilities:
Sometimes love can mean the bitter with the sweet,
There'll be times when you'll find it knocks you off your feet.
Sometime love reminds what’s been lost and left behind,
The heart can ache and sometimes break unexpectedly
Sometimes love can bring you to your knees.
The 6-foot-5 Kentucky troubadour is well-known for his always-on-target lyrics, whether it’s the sun-and-sand perfection of “Livin’ The Good Life,” the loud-and-liquid uproar of “Life, Liberty & The Pursuit Of Happy Hour” or the tenderly passionate “Until I Close My Eyes For Good.”
“Sometimes Love,” which Smith both wrote and produced, has just been delivered to radio via CDX Vol. 540 and PlayMPE and is now available to fans through most digital music retailers, including iTunes and Amazon.com.
The new song, "Sometimes Love", is now available on iTunes.

Daniel is preparing to release his first new song of 2012 to radio later this month.

The Country Network To Debut Daniel Smith’s “Until I Close My Eyes For Good” Jan. 24“The world has gotten cynical about the idea of love lasting forever,” says Smith, who also wrote the song. “But it happens all around us.

Singer Daniel Smith Promises Forever In “Until I Close My Eyes For Good”
From the Guy Behind “Livin’ The Good Life,” “Life, Liberty,
& the Pursuit of Happy Hour”
(Nashville, TN. 9/29/10) In 2008, Daniel Smith rocked America’s beaches with his irresistibly sunny “Livin’ The Good Life.” The next year, barflies everywhere raised their glasses to toast Smith’s personal declaration of independence, “Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit Of Happy Hour.”
Now the strapping, 6-foot-5 heartthrob has set a new standard for love songs with his tenderly passionate “Until I Close My Eyes For Good.” The single version of this Valentine-strength ballad will be released October 11 and can be found on Smith’s latest album, The EP, on DLS Records.
“The world has gotten cynical about the notion of love lasting forever,” says Smith, who also wrote the song. “But it happens all around us. Just look at the obituary pages. The one beam of light you’ll see is how long most of the marriages mentioned there endured. That always moves me.”
The single impacts radio on October 11.

Well here we are, getting close to the end of summer and we've had a lot of folks asking us what's been going on. Daniel took a brief hiatus away from music this summer, doing various projects around his house. He built a new deck, garden shed, new driveway, laid 2,500 square feet of sod and a lot of small projects.
"There's a lot of things I've been meaning to do around the house," said the 6'-5" singer,"and it was kind of nice taking a breather away from music, getting my hands dirty and banged up. I smashed my thumb a few times but that goes with the job. And sometimes you need to get away from your passion, clear your head and re-energize."
A new single will be heading to radio in early October, along with a cool contest. We'll have more details very soon!
Here's wishing everyone a great Independence Day! Stay safe and say a prayer for our military folks' safety.
Here's Daniel's version of the Brooks & Dunn classic, "Red Dirt Road".
As some of you may have heard, Nashville, Tennessee suffered an unimaginable flood last weekend. So many folks were displaced from their homes, lost all their belongings, and have been subjected to utter misery.
There hasn't been much national news coverage, but the people of Nashville have rallied in support of their neighbors and the assistance offered by strangers to those who have lost everything is nothing short of heartwarming. The price tag for the flood is expected to top $1 billion.

God bless the people of Nashville.

By Matt Bjorke
-Daniel Smith is an independent artist but you wouldn’t know that from listening his recently released “The EP.” Collection. Featuring six tracks, The EP sounds as good as anything currently coming out of the label system in Nashville. With a solid banjo-backed melody, “The Memories Go On” rolls easily across the ears while Daniel is able to use his expressive voice to good use on radio single “Man Like Me,” which is –for my money – one of the best singles of the year. The EP also features the country rocker “Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happy Hour,” which melodically recalls hit 80s pop/rock songs. Everything on The EP is tastefully produced, well-written and performed. I can’t wait to hear a whole record from this artist.
Nice comment by Roughstock.com about Daniel.
Check out the new video for "Life, Liberty & The Pursuit Of Happy Hour"! It was shot at the local Nashville pub, The Batter's Box. A big thanks to everyone who participated! To watch it full screen click
We'd like to thank the fine folks at Country Weekly magazine for having us over to perform for them, including the new single, "Life, Liberty & The Pursuit Of Happy Hour". They're a great bunch!

Singer Daniel Smith Offers His Own Stimulus Package, “Life, Liberty & The Pursuit Of Happy Hour”
Song Also Signals Release of His New Album, The EP
NASHVILLE, TN ( JULY 20, 2009) American patriots around the world will thrill to the release of Daniel Smith’s stirring (or shaken) new single, “Life, Liberty & The Pursuit. Of Happy Hour.” This tribute to our nation’s most cherished values—especially the two-for-one principle—will begin spinning at radio stations July 27.
“These are the times that dry men’s soul,” Smith says solemnly. “Take away our happy hour and you’d have another revolution.”
Written by Smith and Charles Moore, “Life, Liberty & The Pursuit Of Happy Hour” is the lead single from Smith’s newest album, The EP, which has just been released on DLS Records.
Last summer, the strapping 6-foot-5 singer/songwriter inspired a rush of happy hour toasts with his lyrical celebration of sand and sun, “Livin’ The Good Life.” More recently he won over legions of new fans with his single and music video, “Man Like Me,” and his round of appearances at the CMA Music Festival.
Next Tuesday, the EP will be available for purchase. It will include the new single, set to go to radio July 27, "Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit Of Happy Hour", “Man Like Me,” “Livin’ The Good Life,” “Things You Keep,” “The Memories Go On” and “Until I Close My Eyes For Good.”
Here's wishing y'all a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend!
Here's an interview and review of the EP by Today's Country top dog, David Pierce:
A review of Daniel's performance by the CMA's Alyssa Smith [no relation]:
Daniel Smith Takes Acoustic Corner Visitors to the Islands and Back for Hot Wings
After meeting Daniel Smith at his booth in Greased Lightning Fan Fair Hall, Pam and Ray Lee along with their friend Alan Bradburn, all from Liverpool, England, took seats to see him play at the Durango Acoustic Corner.
Smith performed eight original songs, starting off with “What U See Is What U Get” and “Welcome to My Reality.” He took the audience to the islands with everything but the tropical drinks as he sang “Living the Good Life.” In “Ain’t No Place Like Home” he crooned of destinations he had traveled to, though his “heart lays in Tennessee.” Smith’s next song, “Thank You,” a tribute to all the servicemen and women, won a standing ovation.
Whether singing about gaining unintended weight and having cholesterol problems in “What’s Wrong with That” or relationships in “Right Side of Love,” Smith forged a connection with listeners who could relate easily to his narrative.
As Smith introduced his final song, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happy Hour,” the audience laughed, cheered, and clapped at the playful nature of the title. He crooned about consuming hot wings and cold beer as “exercising our God-given constitutional right… to throw back a long neck.” Though listeners spilled in throughout Smith’s set, most settled down, enjoyed the air-conditioning, and remained for the set.
Upon exiting, Pam and Ray Lee raved that Daniel Smith sounded “just like the record” and were absolutely glad that they were able to see such a great musician in such an intimate setting.
