Ernie Smith Teams up with CD Baby for Haiti

by Jasmine Gordon



Ernie Smith is known for his original hits such as 'Life is Just for Living', winner of the 1972 World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo , sponsored by the Yamaha Foundation; 'Tears on My Pillow' the Johnny Nash million seller; 'Duppy Gunman' and more.

Ernie has hit another milestone with his latest CD Album - 'COUNTRY MILE', produced and recorded at Mikey Bennett's Grafton Studios.

COUNTRY MILE has 14 tracks plus a bonus (Heal Jamaica.) written for the American Chamber of Commerce in Jamaica as their signature song for the Grants Pen Project.

CD Baby will donate US$1.00 toward Haitian earthquake relief for every CD and Album download sold at

In addition to what he has already given, Ernie will donate US$2.00 for each of his CDs or Album download purchased on CD Baby for the next six months.


Country Mile shows that time has no boundary for this singer songwriter of over four decades.

Ernie still makes poignant social commentaries with his usual incisive take on national and international issues and presents his material with quality arrangements, clear diction and his evergreen vocal talents.

Country Mile makes you want to dance even as you laugh at some of the problems now facing the world.

Everybody, no matter where you are from, can identify with his chosen topics ? love, karma, migration, nation building, and family. Plans are afoot to take this latest presentation of his vast catalogue of songs to the world.

The tracks to look out for are: Thats the Kind of People We are, (with his friend for decades - Pluto Shervington); You are a Lion, (featuring popular Radio DJ, Ron Muschette from IRIE FM), Country Mile, the Title song and Somebody Here,
(a conversation with his son).
