FRONT OF THE HOUSE

Fresh off his show-stealing performance at BMLG’s CRS 2020 luncheon, guitar savant Payton Smith made his debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage, receiving a warm welcome from the genre’s most dedicated audience as he stepped inside the iconic Opry wooden circle. Honoring the genre’s traditions while moving the sound forward, the CMT 2020 Listen Up artist recently began covering some of his other heroes, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. The latter serendipitously scored him a record deal. When Payton landed a slot on one of the smaller stages at CMA Fest in 2018, he decided to play as if he were headlining an arena, tearing through original songs all while delivering supercharged guitar solos. Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta happened to be walking by that afternoon and shortly thereafter offered him a deal on the Big Machine Records imprint.
