Married singer songwriters Adam Lazio and Frances Lawson are Smoky Mountains, forging classic outlaw country and Americana to create a sound all their own. Hailing from different parts of North America, they fatefully met in Los Angeles and started playing music together in 2019. Their swampy debut single "The Baptism" features pedal steel by Bob (Boo) Bernstein and tells the story of a woman's desperate quest for redemption after comitting a mortal sin.
"Smoky Mountains make us want to sit around the fire after a long day on the trail. 'The Baptism' keeps your head rocking like a ZZ Top country tune... one of the best produced and arranged songs we have heard — from the spurs to the shakers. Smoky Mountains…get on their trail."
"I’m a big fan of country music with a spaghetti western feel, so I was very pleased to hear The Baptism, the latest song from American duo Smoky Mountains."
"Smoky Mountains shows why the South remains a great musical cradle, with 'The Baptism'"
