BIG SMO for PRESIDENT
“I believe in true America, people who made this country what it was, and those who strive to see it remain free. I am Smo, and I am NRA Country all the way.”

Always showcasing a sound and genre all his own, SMO celebrated 10 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 of the country and rap charts with his album Kuntry Livin’.
The Tennessee native has amassed more than 50 million views on YouTube, nearly 40 million streams and has sold over 450,000 tracks.

There’s hip hop, and then there’s ‘hick hop. Country artist Big Smo a master at the latter made a debut at No.31 on the Billboard B200 and #9 on Billboard Top Country Albums with KUNTRY LIVIN (Warner Music Nashville | CD - MP3 - UK iTunes - Amazon.com) selling 8,724 copies (chart dated June 21, 2014) showcasing his “talents” on his album. It peaked at #6 Country maintaining first week sales aided by his TV debut of “The Big Smo Show”. Big Smo, a.k.a. Hick Ross and Boss of the Stix starred in his own original A&E Network series produced by Brownstone Entertainment. The Reality TV show Kuntry Livin' aired every Wednesday on Smomotiontv

Smo's got charisma and partly because he's a crafty, scrappy fellow with a Lil Wyte affiliation linking him to the underground and an approach that says "Hell, I can do this!," - Allmusic

His recently released new album, We The People, was produced by Jason Mater/executive produced by Dan Nelson, and features 11 tracks all co-written by Smo including “Say My Name,” the “catchy as all hell” tune “Movin’ On Up” and the patriotic title cut.

Released 21 July 2016

NOTE: The National Rifle Association (NRA) is a formidable opponent, however, when it comes to grass-roots organizing. It has more than 4 million members who feel passionately about gun rights. Nearly 90 percent of NRA members oppose the banning semi-automatic weapons.


About SMO
“This album is definitely about growth.”

So says Smo, whose growth as a force in American music cannot be denied. Having topped 50 million views on YouTube, sold more than 450,000 tracks and dominated both the country and rap charts, the charismatic Tennessee-bred artist, outdoorsman and family man draws fans from across all social boundaries.
How does he do it? He speaks truth. He lays down epic rhymes that challenge listeners to party when they can, to champion the values on which they were (or should have been) raised, to look straight into the eyes of life, to laugh and love and even get angry every once in a while, if that helps make things right.
These many sides of Smo are represented proudly on his latest album. Yes, We The People is about growth, in creative horizons as well as in a worldview nurtured by time and trial. But it’s also about the growth it inspires among his ever-expanding audience, who see their own stories mirrored in his.

I see things today in a clearer way than I ever have, as a father, as a son, as an American,” Smo insists. “It’s about that growth for me as an individual and hoping I can influence my listeners to grow with me.”

From working dawn to dusk on his family farm to riding border to border on his bus, from meeting and entertaining his fans, aka “Kinfoke,” from fusing elements of raw country and hip-hop in a makeshift studio to the private moments he shares via his “Smo On The Go” video posts on Facebook, Smo incorporates all that has come his way into a unique and personal sound.

A new and especially difficult turn impacted Smo’s approach to music and life in general.
Last year Smo underwent quadruple bypass surgery, an experience that can’t help but change those who survive.

“When you’re facing death and you’re given a second chance with life, you find that you value that life much more,” he reflects. “I’ve been guilty in the past of taking the simple things for granted. Today I stand here, clear-minded, with my eyes set on my target.”
Smo addresses this in his “manifesto,” a creed laying the foundation for the album. It pulses throughout We The People, in the empowering proclamation of the title track, the determination to succeed that drives “Say My Name,” the spice and sass that conjures P-Funk on a backwoods parade with “Struttin’ In The Stix,” an irresistible call to rock the house from “sunup to last call” on “Retox” Read More therealbigsmo.com
