JOANNA SMITH FEATURED IN "HORSE DIGEST"
Columbia/BNA artist Joanna Smith is laser-focused on her career, and when she needs some down time from the hectic pace of an up-and-coming artist she hooks up with the main man in her life - her three-year-old quarter horse Jack. Until recently, Joanna had to travel home to South Georgia to ride, but last week her father brought Jack to Tennessee to make Nashville his permanent home.
Joanna opened up about Jack, her father and her overall love of horses in a feature in the current issue of Horse Digest magazine. "I think I was four or five when my daddy bought our first horse for the farm," Joanna told the magazine. "I remember I stood up on the tailgate of his truck so he could hoist me up behind the saddle so I could ride with him. I thought it was the best thing in the world." She credits her father for mentoring her about riding. "My dad taught me to ride, and taught me to respect horses. He grew up riding and is a very natural horseman."
The full issue can be viewed by clicking here, and Joanna's feature is on page 42. As she readies her new Buddy Cannon-produced single release on Columbia/BNA, due out this spring, Joanna continues to write and perform.
