One of Music City’s hottest up and coming songwriters, Minneapolis native, Caitlyn Smith, started singing at the age of seven, began playing guitar and writing songs by the age of eleven, and hasn’t stopped since.
By the age of 20, Caitlyn had released three independent records and toured throughout the U.S.
Her undeniable ability to grab someone by the heart strings with only a guitar and her astounding voice proves to be an experience one does not forget.
In 2010, Caitlyn moved to Nashville and signed on as a staff songwriter with Brett James’ Cornman Music/BMG Rights Management. Within the first few months of signing the deal, she garnered a cut with multi-platinum selling artist, Jason Aldean. Shortly thereafter, Caitlyn co-wrote with Rascal Flatts and the song,
“Let it Hurt”, was released on their new album Changed. Over the past few years, her songs have also been featured in countless TV shows, such as ABC's "Make It Or Break It", MTV’s “Jersey Shore”, “The Real World”, and “One Tree Hill”.
Musical influences include Patty Griffin, Alison Krauss, and the Dixie Chicks. Caitlyn was honored to spend last summer on tour with Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson and is currently in the studio finishing a new record, co-produced by Brett James, Troy Verges, and Gordie Sampson.
