After 20 weeks on the Roots Report, the CD climbed the charts as high as #25 nationally. In 2004, Smith released "That's What I'm Talk'n 'Bout," co-produced by Grammy Award Nominee Joanna Connor. This CD shows masterful songwriting, outstanding arrangements, and traditional quality. It features a host of Chicago players including Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, who worked with the Muddy Waters Band for twenty years. 2001 marked the release of Smith's first effort "Midnight Creeper" which brought him international attention. Smith has toured throughout the United States, Eastern Europe, Mexico, South America, and Russia, to sell out crowds. Smith has worked with and shared the stage with notable artists such as Hubert Sumlin, B.B. King, Buddy King, Buddy Miles, Son Seals Willie Bigeyes Smith, Pinetop Perkins, and many more.
