Terry B. Smith
Terry Smith grew up in Benton, Arkansas. His fascination with country music came at an early age, from listening to his father, Jay Smith, spin records on the state's most popular radio station, KSSN-96 .
He wrote his first country lyric in college at the University of Central Arkansas, where he earned his bachelors and masters degrees, but put his pen away until he was 36.
He began writing again in 2009. He joined the local NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association) chapter in Little Rock.
Now it's a juggling act between raising two young boys, coaching basketball at Perryville High School and writing songs.
Terry co- writes primarily in Central Arkansas and travels frequently to Nashville. He has co-written with Matthew Huff, Lance Carpenter, Jim Pollock, Sandy Ramos (“Let ‘Er Rip” by the Dixie Chicks), Jason Campbell, Micheal Lee Collins, Anne E DeChant and others.
He is a member of BMI and NSAI and lives in Conway, Arkansas with his wife, Erika and their two boys, Braxton and Brock.
