Canaan Smith, who is signed to Florida Georiga Line’s Round Here Records, recently released the video for his latest track, “Colder Than You.” The Kurt Ozan-directed clip finds smith in the northern Georgia stretch of the Blue Ridge Mountains where he serves up a heartbreak remedy by making what he likes to call “beer-shine.”

The light-hearted clip pairs well with the catchy country tune, which was co-produced by Smith alongside Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, and written by Smith, Corey Crowder and Jared Mullins.
