Since forming 7 years ago, country duo Smithfield has formed a solid fanbase, while the genre has been slowly embracing them. The duo has resonated well with audiences and are coming into their own as a duo that’s about to take the world by storm. The possibilities for Smithfield are endless and the beginning starts with their breakout single “Hey Whiskey”.
With Spotify and Sirius XM championing them, it’s only a matter of time before we see them headlining their own shows and winning the awards that so often belong to other artists. “Hey Whiskey” is just as powerful as it is fierce, and their recent success with the song proves just that. The track has been called a “Highway Find” on Sirius XM’s the Highway, and now the song is about to heard by millions across the country as it makes its debut on the radio.
We had the time to catch up with Jenn and Trey to chat about “Hey Whiskey,” the song hitting radio and what’s next for the duo. Check out the interview below:
FANGIRLISH: ‘Hey Whiskey” isn’t a song we hear very often on the radio. Can you talk about penning the song? What was the process like?

FANGIRLISH: What is a lyric from the song that resonates most with you guys right now in your life?
FANGIRLISH: Vocally, there are a lot of outstanding moments throughout the track. What are sobme of your favorite moments to sing vocally on the song? Are there ever times where you find some moments vocally challenging?
FANGIRLISH: The song is hitting country radio this Spring. What are you most looking forward to about it finally being played on the radio?
Smithfield: We are looking forward to new fans discovering it! It has been around for a bit now on major platforms, but never on the terrestrial radio. It’s a special song and deserves to be heard by millions. We can’t wait to see more people singing along with us at our shows and her the response from country radio!
