NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 1, 2016) - Poised to be the next breakout duo in country music, Smithfield has been named one of Rolling Stone Country's '10 New Country Artists You Need to Know' for July of 2016.
"Why You Should Pay Attention: The concept of a duo is a beloved country institution - from the early days with Flatt & Scruggs to the wallet chain of friendship linking Florida Georgia Line - though it's also faded over time as the solo megastar has become the genre's most important currency. But SmithField, Texas twosome Trey Smith and Jennifer Fiedler, who have known each other since the preteen years, find their strength in what multiple voices can bring to the table, especially when you add in the allure of a little "are they or aren't they?" sexual tension. Their current single "Nothing But the Night," about skinny-dipping under the moonlight, certainly showcases that chemistry - whether we're talking about harmonies or hormones." -Rolling Stone Country
Also deemed one of People.com and the Huffington Post's '2016 Artists to Watch,' the duo is blazing an infectious trail that has led to SiriusXM naming them a Highway Find and CMT adding Smithfield to their 'Artist Discovery Initiative.' The twosome also recently had the honor of making their Grand Ole Opry debut. Upcoming Opry appearances include July 8 and July 16.

Mixing the heavily rock-influenced background of Trey with the classical country tendency of Jennifer, Smithfield yields undeniable harmonies in their contemporary country sound that is as different as it is compelling. After making the move to Nashville in 2012, the duo quickly began honing their sound, writing and recording. Their vocals blend perfectly together and songwriting showcases their musical chemistry, having co-written every song on the eight-track EP which has garnered national media attention by highly respected outlets including People.com and the Huffington Post. Having grown up together, their live show exudes a genuine and natural affinity that has led them to open for established artists including Eric Paslay, Scotty McCreery, Jana Kramer, Dustin Lynch and Craig Campbell.
