Ben Smith: Guestbook


May 30, 2014

Hey Ben,
Just started hearing your music on Pandora and have been hooked ever since. I'm just learning guitar and got to say your music makes me want to keep at it. It would be great to see you live, but I'm sure you don't make your way to Bozeman, MT that often haha. Anyway, great music man!

Ben: I still have the CD of your music you gave me when a student at A&M. Glad to see you are doing well.

Hey Ben! I was the guy that probably bugged you at Possum Kingdom last weekend. Just wanted to tell you that I love your music and my wife does as well. I took those cd's home and let her listen to them and she LOVED your voice and music. I really thank you for visiting with me. Im not sure that the crowd at the party really understood the music style, but I did. I will keep checking your website for calender info. I would love to see you again. I did not get to spend a whole lot of time in the house due to the cooking that I was involved in outside most of the evening. Once again, thanks for taking the time to talk to me and I hope to see and listen to you again.

Ben - I saw you/heard you in Arlington about 4-5 years back at a barbeque place and I bought your CD and it was eaten by a in house CD player of a friend and they lost the cover too. I remembered I loved your music but could only remember you had a song called Gasoline and your first name. I asked my godaughter if she remembered you and she said oh yes he was really good so she found you and sent me this link! Se was with me that night, you were oh so handsome sitting on a stool in a little restaurant bar and our party of five were the only ones there and it didn't matter you gave a great performance regardless. Glad to see you are still going strong. Blessings and good luck - Kim Meriwether

Wow Ben. I met you last night at the Grand Lodge in Forest Grove. I didn't have the priviledge of hearing you sing in person but I listened to all of your music. My favorite song is River Road. You have a beautiful voice and this song takes me back to my roots in Montana.

Sing your heart out.



August 19, 2010

Great job tonight at McMenamins Edgefield. The crowd wasn't great (i.e. the "Oregon" dancing was suspect for sure) but your groove was good. My wife and I really enjoyed your style - super talented for sure. Your CD's will be a part of our memories of our 17th anniversary. Someday when you're on the big stage we'll tell people "hey, we talked with that guy!"

Hi Ben-
I realize my personal opinion may mean nothing, but......A few years ago I was a student in two of your father's writing courses at North Central Texas College. He's a great teacher, one of the best I ever had, and I often wonder how he is. He helped me become a better writer. He told me about you and I bought your CD, which I enjoy very much. You have a great voice. I wish you and your band nothing but the best.
Love and Peace Be With You,
Justin, Texas

Very impressive c.d. Ben!! I was pleasently suprised. I facebooked you a comment so I'm not gonna say it all again on here. But curious if your whole band is playing at this Hanks place on thursday still cuz I would like to see the performance with all the band. It is a great c.d.!!!

Ben saw you in colorado and really enjoyed your performance and attitude. I do a lot of benifits for different charties, and will contact you later. Your name is not one that is recognized so will have to bring you on with another act, you by yourself with the venue I do would have a hard time selling. I usually do benfits for the Crisis pregnancy centers, special olympics, and Texas Childrens hospital Christmas feed and toy drive. Take care and hope to talk to you later. Kent Black 2817349617

Hey! I seen you at the Summer Balloon Classic in Mansfield/Waxahachie this past weekend. I loved your music and have had the CD playing in the car all weekend. I think I'm going to make the drive to Lindale to see you again in August (I needed a reason to check out Miranda's winery). I took a few pictures from the show I'll have up on my myspace later today, you should check them out. One's pretty cool with the hot air balloon inflating behind you.

Thanks for a great show!

red neck Jedi
You might be a Redneck Jedi if...

* You ever heard the phrase, "May the force be with y'all."

* Your Jedi robe is camouflage.

* You have ever used your light saber to open a bottle of Bud Light.

* At least one wing of your X-Wings is primer colored.

* You can easily describe the taste of an Ewok.

* You have ever had a land-speeder up on blocks in your yard.

* The worst part of spending time on Dagobah is the dadgum skeeters.

* Wookiees are offended by your B.O.

* You have ever used the force to get yourself another beer so you didn't have to wait for a commercial.

* You have ever used the force in conjunction with fishing or bowling.

* Your father has ever said to you, "Shit, son come on over to the dark'll be a hoot."

* You have ever had your R-2 unit use its self-defense electro-shock thingy to get the barbecue grill to light up.

* You have a confederate flag painted on the hood of your land-speeder.

* You ever fantasized about Princess Leah wearing Daisy Duke shorts.

* You have the doors of your X-wing welded shut and you have to get in through the window.

* Although you had to kill him, you kinda thought that Jabba the Hutt had a pretty good handle on how to treat his women.

* You have a cousin who bears a strong resemblance to Chewbacca.

* You suggested that they outfit the Millennium Falcon with redwood deck.

* You were the only person drinking Jack Daniels during the cantina scene.

* If you hear . . . "Luke, I am your father... and your uncle..."

Hello Ben,

we want you to know that we really enjoy your CD "Pendulum" that we got at Hondos, Fredericksburg in April! We really liked your show, too! We will have to come back to have you sign the CD, since we were too shy to ask that day. We are probably back in September, hoping to see you in TX. Unless you are on your music tour around the world then.
