Conner Smith drops “Creek Will Rise (Acoustic)”

Continuing to super serve his loyal fan base as he readies his forthcoming full-length debut, CONNER SMITH has dropped a fresh acoustic version of his bluegrass-inflected twang rocker “Creek Will Rise” (The Valory Music Co.). The blood-pumping single is currently US Top-20-and-rising at Country radio while amassing nearly 40 million streams to date with Country Central declaring it “an absolute barn-burner from the first note.”
