Born in Montgomery, Alabama and raised in the small neighboring city of Prattville, Kel Smith no doubt knew she wanted a career in music. Growing up, some of Kel Smith’s most prominent musical influences included: Alicia Keys, Jamey Johnson, and Chris Stapleton. It wasn’t until 2 years ago, that Kel knew country music was what she wanted to pursue. Kel picked up her second guitar in September of 2018 after attending her first country concert seeing Dylan Schneider. Till this day, Dylan has been a very big inspiration to Kel.

After teaching herself guitar in 4 weeks, Kel wrote her first single while in Tuscaloosa in February of 2019, moved to Nashville April of 2019, and released her first single July of 2019. Kel’s love for the simple things in life, are perfectly described in her first release, “Small Town Night” This song was written by Kel Smith herself and it paints the picture of the enjoyment of the simple things worth enjoying in a small town. Always having a buddy’s yard to have a bonfire at, or simply riding the back county roads with the windows down are all lyrics we can relate to. Kel Smith is shaking up the Country Music Industry little by little with her unique voice, sound, and style.

If you haven’t heard of her yet, then you will. Kel Smith is here to make her mark one guitar string at a time.

Kel’s sophomore release “Don’t Count My Shots” is scheduled for release on her birthday of August 26th this year.
