Payton Smith Sings of Summer Love in New Video, “Like I Knew You Would”

"I hope fans feel the positive energy and good vibes," he says.

One of Tennessee’s most overlooked natural beauties is Rock Island State Park, a spot that manages to be rugged and serene at the same time. That outdoor spirit and a hint of summer love help bring Payton Smith’s new video, “Like I Knew You Would,” to life.

Smith, a 20-year-old musician from Houma, Louisiana, signed his record deal after being discovered by Scott Borchetta on a small stage at CMA Music Festival. Dig into Smith’s new EP on Big Machine Records and you’ll hear that he’s equally influenced by ’90s country and rock ’n’ roll radio.
