Lamar Smyly Releases New LP 'Budlight'

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

The singer and songwriter of country music known as Lamar Smyly has released his latest LP record, titled “Budlight.” The album is comprised of 16 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes, making it the most comprehensive collection of Smyly's songs to date. It is the most significant release by Smyly since his 1993 EP record, “Silence,” originally published on the Buckhead Records music label. An earnest revival of the classic country and western sound, “Budlight” by Lamar Smyly continues the journey begun by such early artists as Hank Williams and Roy Acuff, and is a genuine, modern example of the American country music tradition.

Lamar Smyly hails from South Carolina. The opening title track of his record is an ode to his beloved horse, Budlight.

“I was just a kid when I learned how to accompany myself on the guitar,” Smyly writes. “I started writing country songs in the mid seventies.”

He lives on the very same farm where he was raised, which has been in his family since the late 1700s (or shortly after the American Revolution). He cites as main musical influences the likes of Hank Williams, Sr., Johnny Horton, Gene Watson, Jon Conley, Waylon Jennings, Don Williams, and Tom T. Hall, as well as “many other great country artists.”

Audiophiles familiar with these songsmiths will note the common thread running from each to the others. These are country stars with deep roots in the original and most legitimate style of the genre. Some have even taken to calling it American folk music, and indeed, Smyly himself can be found pigeonholed as such from time to time.

“My songs are about real life,” he explains, “not just a song with a hookline. Most of my songs are about my experiences in life, or someone else’s that I know or have known. Like old Hank [Williams] my songs have deep feelings in them. I’ve written a few that are comical but most are about things that folks have experienced or will experience sometime in their life.”

As anyone who hears “Budlight” can tell you, Smyly is entirely aware of what qualities he has infused his musical style with. The beauty of this mode is that it is absolutely unfeigned, a frank and unadorned recording of a man opening his soul with the mere help of a guitar. He politely invites his neighbors of the world to listen with the following lines:

“I’d like for all persons who love true country music to be able to hear and enjoy mine. The message in my music is true and real. Hope you’ll enjoy it.”

“Budlight” by Lamar Smyly is available online worldwide, and country music is that much better for it. Get in early.
