His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace. My Dad’s love of country music and America set me on my life’s journey, and shaped so much of who I am today.

The Voice: Is Jordan Smith the One to Beat? – “I am very open,” he says when asked what kind of music he will pursue. “I hate to limit myself. I hate to put myself in a box because, I think, as artists we should be open to exploring new things. So far on the show I’ve shown myself as a pop singer, but the music that I write is more singer/songwriter with a little more meat in the lyrics, and not as much meat in the actual music. I do think that my roots are in soul music and pop music, which is kind of what I’ll stick to, but I don’t just want to be an average pop singer. I don’t think the world needs another pop star. I think we need someone with some something to say. So whatever I do, I want to write music that inspires people.” – Read more at Parade.com
