"McIntyre Smith’s flair for storytelling and her killer voice set her head and shoulders above the rest""
Raised in the endearing small town of Oliver Springs, Tennessee, singer-songwriter Rachel McIntyre Smith learned to play piano at the age of 9 to one up a classroom rival and has been making music ever since. Drawing inspiration from Kacey Musgraves, Linda Ronstadt, and Taylor Swift, Rachel blends country & vintage pop with her signature clever & catchy lyrics.
In the beginning of 2020, Rachel launched a 7 state concert tour of cat cafes to raise money for feline rescue. Sadly, the tour was cut short but Rachel did not let that interfere with her music plans as she released her single “High School Reunion” in the fall. Rachel’s brightly colored wardrobe fits her upbeat live shows where she has opened for Lee Roy Parnell, Larry Fleet, Paul Thorn, Boy Named Banjo, and Caleb Lee Hutchinson who calls Rachel’s latest release High School Reunion, “Real country music, smart wordplay, excellently written and sung even better. 10/10”.
Now in 2021, Rachel has already released a groovy breakup anthem “Baggage” and lighthearted beach tune "Blue Hawaii".
