NASHVILLE, Tenn. – SMACKSongs artist Jo Smith throws it back and down with a Motown inspired torcher set to steel guitar on “Old School Groove,” which was revealed as a HIGHWAY FIND on SiriusXM’s “The Highway” earlier today.

“I love how this song connects with people,” says Smith. “There is a reason that vinyl is making a comeback, and I think this song captures the essence of that time.”

“Old School Groove,” which was written by Ben Burgess, Bobby Huff and Smith, yearns for the 1960s when romance reigned and a lover’s heart could spin like “vintage vinyl.” It’s what would happen musically if Smokey Robinson and “Miss Country Soul” Jeannie Seely had a musical love child.

The song is the first release from Smith’s debut EP, Introducing Jo Smith, the four-song project was helmed by award winning super-producers Jesse Frasure (Thomas Rhett) and Shane McAnally (Sam Hunt, Kacey Musgraves) who together masterfully blended classic R&B with contemporary country.

Smith has a lot to celebrate. Earlier this week, the Country Music Association announced that Smith will perform on the 2017 CMA Fest Broadway Stage, with more performance details coming soon.
