Decatur songwriter Michael C Smith is continuously churning out an unbelievable amount of heartfelt songs, with a wide breadth and depth of genre that keeps people guessing where to pigeonhole him (which is a great thing). His newest album, Prophet on the Barstool, is being funded through kickstarter. Smith prides himself on being "not corporate country radio compliant...and proud!" "Cold Hallelujah", the last track off the album, showcases this completely. This is not amped-up Bon Jovi with a fiddle playing over the stereo at CVS. This is true Americana with sincere lyrics and honest melodies.
As of this publish date, he has 50 hours left in the campaign and only needs less than $600 to meet his goal. You can donate to the cause here.
