The Original Smoky Song

Smoky Mountain Way was originally recorded in 2011 with Rob Moore on percussion (view video). 

In 2019, Craig, with the help of Rob Moore, Wes Bakken and Steven Acker, re-mixed the song adding guitar, pedal steel and backing vocals. We hope you enjoy our enhancements. Downloads available below.


Smoky Mountains

2019 marks the 85th anniversary of Smoky Mountains National Park, established by an act of Congress on June 15, 1934. 

"As a poet & tunesmith, one of my favorite compositions is Smoky Mountain Way. I was inspired to write about the natural wonder of this part of America and hope my song captures the experience we all feel when being one with nature."  - Smoky
