If you love the Bronco stylings of Canaan Smith then you will love Diamond on the Dresser.
A stunning duet which should appeal to country fans of traditional and modern, Diamond on the Dresser is a truly emotional breathtaking track that feels so beautifully honest. The picking of the guitar is so perfect in it’s simplicity that each note pulled on the guitar string, pulls at the heartstring too.
Emily Weisband and Smith’s vocals blend together like the perfect musical marriage.
This song deserves much recognition and I hope it gets the appreciation that it deserves.
Diamond on the Dresser featuring Grammy-winning songwriter and singer Emily Weisband, is out now via ONErpm. Written with James McNair the song is self produced by Smith.
Of the song Smith says: “The subject of ‘Diamond on the Dresser’ hits close to home as I have family members struggling with alcohol addiction. There have been many instances where it has impacted on me and my family, which is why this is such a personal song for me to share,” explains Smith. “I hope I can shed light on this tough subject and raise awareness for anyone else going through a similar situation, and that this song is a wake-up call for whoever needs it.”
Diamond on the Dresser’ marks the first time Smith has recorded a collaboration with a female artist sharing vocals. Speaking about putting her vocals on the track Weisband says:
“I was writing with McNair and Canaan and they played me this song they’d written together… I had chills, it just felt classic and sincere. It reminded me of a modern-day ‘Whiskey Lullaby’. When he asked me weeks later to sing it with him I was just really honored that he thought I could add something to it!”
Smith adds, “It was so cool to get a reaction like that from such a fantastic songwriter and it validated my belief that this song is something special. I’d envisioned the song as a duet so it was a no-brainer to ask Emily to put her vocals on. The end result surpasses my hopes and expectations.”
‘Diamond on the Dresser’ is Smith’s third release since embarking on his path as an independent artist in 2022. It’s the follow-up to last year’s ‘Heartbreak Heaven’ and this year’s ‘Down in Flames’, which picked up support from Apple Music.
