In time for the season of love, Shannon Smith releases his profound new single “Valentine’s Day” on February 6th, offering a musical narrative that delves deep into the heart of what it means to truly love and forgive. Crafted aboard a houseboat in Augusta, this song stands as a poignant declaration, born from Smith’s personal journey of reconciliation and his desire to express an authentic love that surpasses the mere act of confession.
“Valentine’s Day” harmonizes the rich tones of Americana with a touch of pop soul, creating a soundscape that is both intimate and resonant.

Recorded across three studios, culminating in the hallowed Compass Studios in Nashville, Smith’s latest work is a testament to the redemptive power of love. The single is an evocative blend of delicate piano melodies, stirring organ, and a lyrical honesty that beckons the listener to reflect on their own experiences of love’s complexities and the courage required to mend them.
With its release scheduled just days before Valentine’s Day, Shannon Smith’s “Valentine’s Day” is not just a song for lovers, but for anyone who has faced the challenge of forging authenticity from the ashes of doubt. It is a reminder that the essence of Valentine’s Day transcends chocolates and roses, touching on the enduring strength of love’s enduring promise.
