“It’s so cool to be on the very first Highway Find Tour. We are very honored SiriusXM picked us to be apart of it.”
The 26-city tour kicked off Thursday, March 16th in Charlotte, NC and will make stops across the country in cities including Denver, Minneapolis, Boston, New York, Chicago, and more.
Consisting of Trey Smith and Jennifer Fiedler, the Texas bred twosome’s journey with Moakler and Baldridge is their first real tour, and they are loving the fact that everyone is singing along to their songs each night.
The duo has also been working hard on new music and can’t wait to show everyone the new sound they are crafting.
“Our new music kind of an evolution of what we do. We’ve always been pretty blended with country, rock and pop mixture. We wanted to experiment with some different sonic things this time, and we’re going to work with some different people this time and figure out a new direction, but not in a way that it changes who we are and what our sound is. So, it’s definitely a little more progressive, but it stays true to who we are as a duo, and our vocal blend. And other people we have had listen to it, talk about it being a little bit of a departure from our last EP, but it still keeps that constant Smithfield sound going on so—we’re definitely a little more on the pop side, that’s all,” Trey explains.
“We’re definitely still us. That’s important to me to be true to who we are in our music throughout our career. I mean if you listen to like Keith Urban like Ripcord, that’s the most pop album I’ve heard in a while, but it’s still Keith Urban,” Jennifer adds.
The “Highway Finds” spotlight on SiriusXM’s Highway channel is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to discovering, introducing and breaking new artists. Moakler, Baldridge, and Smithfield are in some good company since other past “Highway Finds” artists including Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, Maren Morris, William Michael Morgan, and Chase Rice.
