Jodi Smith lives on a huge family farm in a town that's little more than a stone's throw away from Des Moines, IA. When she was six years old, Smith began vocal lessons and joined a local choir. Three years later she became a member of a children's variety group that performed hundreds of shows over the next four years.

In 1998, at the age of 15, Smith traveled to Nashville's Country Music Expo. That's where Moraine Music found the young talent. A year later, she was featured in a best-new-talent showcase put together by Music City Music. She walked away with her first music deal. The young singer/songwriter graduated from high school in 2000, a whole year ahead of schedule. That same year, while other young ladies in her class were picking out prom dresses and preparing for college, Smith was touring and reading the positive reviews about her debut album, All I Wanna Do, and the single "Livin' for the Minute."

Smith has toured endlessly, opening for major acts like Sons of the Desert and country's fabulous Martina McBride. Smith has also performed at festivals with artists including John Michael Montgomery, Keith Urban, and Teri Clark. Some of the country tracks on Jodi Smith's fantastic debut album are "Wrangler Butts," "If You Could Have Anything," and "Messin' With My Heart Again." She wrote a few of the album's numbers herself.
