I just got back from a week away in Colorado and was so happy to start the work week with country artist Nate Smith. I’ve been a big fan of Nate for a few years now and I am so happy that Nate joined my podcast to share his story with us. Nate overcame a lot to get to where he is today. In 2018, Nate lost everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire which tore through Paradise, California, now known as the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. Although his family was safe, he struggled to cope and turned back to music for comfort, using a loaned guitar to co-write a song called “One of These Days.”
Listen below to hear about his journey, what he’s learned from touring with Brett Eldredge, what Honky Tonk Bars and restaurants he recommends that you visit in Nashville and more!
p.s his song WHISKEY IS YOU is climbing the charts!! wahoo
