Who We Are
We are a team of real people
Headquartered in Fort Worth Texas, Smith Entertainment Distribution is one of the leading independent music distribution and marketing companies in the industry. Starting in 1998 with the releases of live-recorded albums at the World's Largest Honky Tonk, Billy Bob’s Texas, under the Smith Music Group label founded by Rick Smith. That labeled paved the way for what was to come. In 2004 Rick passed away and his brother Randy Smith took the helm and the Smith Entertainment Digital Imprint was launched. One of the first digital record labels of its kind, SE-Digital is quickly becoming a Texas-based artist's first step into the world of digital retail and onto websites such as iTunes, Amazon.com, Google, Tidal, Apple Music and many more. Many of our Digital artists have also gone on to enjoy success on our Smith Entertainment Digital platform.
In 2011, Smith Entertainment began its own distribution company, Smith Entertainment Distribution. Ushering in a new era of opportunity to help its artists, labels, and managers. At this moment Rick's son Ricky is at the helm and beginning yet another chapter in the ever-changing music business while providing transparency, creativity, collaboration, direct feedback, and the independent spirit drive of Smith's culture. We place music & people over profits.
