Eric Smith / Bio

**update** I won the 2012 (humor category) & now the 2013 (children's category) New Songs showcase at the Walnut Valley Festival. It was an honor to perform my tune "hard to be cool" on stage 3 in 2012! And now in 2013, I, along with my oldest daughter Maddie (playing fiddle) will be playing together at the Walnut Valley Festival - aka Winfield. In 2011 - I entered one of my tunes in the Texas Independent Music Expo Performing Songwriter Competition and out of a100+ songs that were entered by 87 songwriters I made it into the top 10 semi-finalists!

These songs are samples - not a final product. When I get the money or better yet; when some BIG star takes one of my tunes to the top of the charts I'll have the money then - ha,ha. I'm dreaming BIG/HUGE I know, but hey why not. Anyway - I've been playing for quite some time now. I love to pick Chet/Travis style, yet here lately, I've really gotten into learning old time fiddle tunes on the guitar and mandolin. I love to write about real life things. I get ideas from my family, friends, pastors, and the sillyness of my kids and weird things in this world. However, I must say, I ultimately thank GOD for the gift of playing music. ...and as you can see from the picture - I'm a proud Dad having my girls play music with me now! What a blessing!!! Thanks for listening y'all.
