In today’s music world, it can be hard finding duos or groups that truly connect and can call themselves what they are. Some have one member who does all the work while the other(s) stay in the shadows wondering why they’re even there. Others can attest to having great chemistry whether it be through luscious harmonies, or great varied instrumentation.
Smooth Hound Smith is a duo that can truly call themselves a duo. Based in East Nashville in 2012, Zack Smith and Caitlin Doyle have remained in the shadows for quite some time now. Ever since releasing their self-titled debut album back in 2013, the duo has gone on to ascend new heights such as opening for the Dixie Chicks on their brand new tour.
Their latest album, Sweet Tennessee Honey is quite the eclectic record, one that will please both traditional country fans as well as Americana fans. There’s blues, country, rock, heck, even some soul on this record that combines to make Smooth Hound Smith’s signature sound.
