SMO Releases "This One's For You" On Average Joes Entertainment

For his first new album, This One’s For You, SMO has partnered with Average Joes Entertainment. The album was released this week.

After being with a major label for the release of a well-received pair of albums and semi-independent EP release last year, SMO signed with Average Joes, the powerhouse label which has featured, at one point or another, most of the top artists in the Country/Hip Hop genre. It’s the right pairing and the right path for the superstar.

This One’s For You features a dozen tracks including “Boss 2.0,” the album’s first single. The album features production from David Ray, Eric “WeeWee” Flemming and DJ Orig.” The record is 100%, 100-proof old school SMO. The goal for “This One’s For You was to release a record which would be a legendary part of his fan’s lives. SMO serves as a co-writer on each of the 12 tracks.

The album features prideful anthem “How I Roll” with Colt Ford and David Ray, a chronicle of SMO’s cannabis journey on “Colorado Bound” with (who else but) Afroman and the track “Tear Da Mud Up,” featuring DJ Paul of Three 6 Mafia. Cypress Spring and D-Ray guest on “Bone Splitta” and the title track “This One’s For You,” which describes what the record is about: The fans, his kinfolke.

“As always, I have handcrafted a buffet of backwood adventures and life lessons for my kinfoke to enjoy," said SMO. "This album is a true representation of where I am in life as a man, a father, a son, and a leader for my people.”

In addition to releasing This One’s For You last week, he has also released his autobiography, My Life In A Jar: The Book Of SMO. The hard cover of the book will release in September after the e-book rollout the past week. The book was co-written with noted biographer Jake Brown, best-known around here for his pair of Nashville Songwriter books.
