Critically acclaimed Nashville-based singer/songwriter Mindy Smith, whose “best songs sound like little miracles” (USA Today), embarks on a tour that includes a show at City Winery DC on Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Mindy’s last studio album was her self-titled 2012 record, which featured songs like “Cure for Love.” Mindy has certainly remained busy, however! In 2014, Smith offered her songwriting and vocal talents to the award winning PBS series, “Shelter Me”, writing the shows theme song of the same name, and gathering a consortium of her artist friends to be a part of a special compilation benefiting the cause.
In 2018, Mindy collaborated with country superstar Kenny Chesney on his album, Songs for the Saints, a record for hurricane relief. Chesney announced that all proceeds from his album will be donated to his own Love for Love City Fund dedicated to Virgin Island relief. She celebrated the 15th anniversary of her debut album in 2019 with a tour and a vinyl reissue.
