World Premiere Video: Caitlyn Smith’s “Tacoma”

Song Featured on Her New Starfire EP

Prepare to be impressed by the incomparable Caitlyn Smith.

Since moving to Nashville years ago to focus on writing, the singer-songwriter has penned songs for everyone from Jason Aldean to James Bay. Her credits also include Meghan Trainor and John Legend’s No. 1 hit, “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.”

Now, she’s taking her turn behind the microphone again.

“Tacoma” is featured on Smith’s just-released five-song EP leading up to her upcoming album, Starfire. The EP is filled with musical gems, and “Tacoma,” co-written with veteran Nashville songwriter Bob DiPiero, was so enchanting, Garth Brooks cut on his latest record Man Against Machine.

Smith’s take is breathtakingly emotive, honest and laced with soul and blues. Enjoy her version now.
