Payton Smith Shares New Single, “She’s Going to Town”

Combustion Masters artist Payton Smith dropped his latest song, “She’s Going to Town,” last Friday. Co-written by Jeff Garrison, Jim McCormick, and Payton Smith, the tune puts a heartbreak spin on the idiom “going to town” by describing a city girl who’s done with the country life. She got a taste of it during a fling with a guy from the county over, but when things went south she went back downtown. 

The song is a barn-burner if there ever was one. Equal parts head-banging rock and countrified pop, it delivers all catchy melodies and smooth-talking lyrics that fans of Smith have come to love. It also features one of the best sing-along choruses we’ve heard in a minute. 

“She’s Going to Town” follows five-song short-player Up From Here which he dropped in April. In the short two months since then, the EP has already racked up nearly a million streams on Spotify alone. The new music comes just in time, because Smith’s gearing up to launch a string of shows through July (including two opening up for Hank Williams Jr.). 

See if he’s coming your way this summer here, and be sure to stream “She’s Going to Town” below.
