Canaan Smith Shows Off Inspirational New Ink
Canaan Smith is now sporting a permanent piece of art on his forearm. The singer's freshly-inked tattoo is a vertical piece of typography created from lyrics to a hymn and reads, “Two wonders here that I confess my worth & my unworthiness,” surrounded by artful filigree and flair.
The beautiful art, tattooed by Eli Draughn at Nashville’s Safe House Tattoo, is a testament to Smith’s faith, as he implied with the hashtag "#truth." It’s not Smith’s first foray into large-scale tats, though, as he has a gothic-style letter S on one bicep — for his surname as well as his Savior, he’s said — and a bucking bronco on the other, in memory of his brother who died in a car crash while driving a Ford Bronco (also the inspiration for his latest record's title).
One of country’s most promising up-and-comers, the singer-songwriter recently played (and displayed his six-pack) at Country Jam in Colorado, as well as performed at a benefit for the victims of the recent shooting in Orlando with several other country artists. He’s been on the road with Brantley Gilbert on the Black Out Tour, where he decided to play a little prank on tour mate Michael Ray, coming out on stage dressed as Jesus during Ray’s song "Real Men Love Jesus."
Bronco was released last year and features his hit single “Hole in the Bottle,” which reached the Top 25 on the Billboard Country Airplay charts.
