Canaan Smith Becomes the Golden Boy

"Love You Like That" Certified Gold

Canaan Smith has to be one happy guy right after his hit single “Love You Like That” was officially certified gold by the RIAA for selling more than 500,000 digital copies.

The single is inching its way closer and closer to the top of the country charts and has already earned millions in streams. People love it, and they love him.


His upcoming debut album Bronco features the single and a host of other great songs, but it truly tells a story that provides a great introduction to the man behind the voice.

“I wanted Bronco to tell my story of who I am and lead the listener through my life and what I’m all about,” Smith says.

And you’re getting the story straight from the source. Smith wrote all but three songs on the project.

“I am so grateful for this experience and am really proud of the way the album has taken shape. My hope is that the fans can relate and find pieces of themselves in the music,” Smith says.

You can catch Smith on Dierks Bentley’s Sounds of Summer tour with Kip Moore and Maddie & Tae.
