Smith says the National Anthem is a song she is very comfortable with singing as she says it “has always been a staple in who I am. From opening Tennessee’s Boys’ State Conference since I was 10 years old, to opening a Casting Crowns concert back in 2002, to kicking off football games at my high school… the National Anthem has always been a huge part of my life and an honor to sing each time.”

Smith also says she is honored to be representing Belmont this year and hopes to make the University proud.
