About Michael W. Smith

Michael Whitaker Smith was born October 7, 1957, to Paul and Barbara Smith, in Kenova, West Virginia. His father was an oil refinery worker, and his mother was a caterer and church secretary. He has one sister, Kim.

As a child, Michael was active in church activities, baseball, and playing piano, writing his first song when he was five. When he was ten years old, he decided to give his life to Christ. An early dream was to play professional baseball. During his teens, he was surrounded by a solid support group of fellow believers who frequently gathered to play music. After graduating from high school, the group split up.

Awesome God LyricsMichael attended a semester of college at Marshall University in West Virginia but dropped out and moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. He played with local bands. Unable to get a record deal, Smith experimented with drugs and alcohol quickly before reclaiming his direction and renewing his faith in October 1979.

He started performing with a Christian group called Higher Ground, playing keyboards. While playing with Higher Ground, he signed his first songwriting contract with Paragon/Benson Publishing Company. The sixteen-hour days writing music was a labor of love for Michael.

It was during this time in 1981 that Smith met his wife, Debbie. Quoting from his book, It’s Time to be Bold:

“…one afternoon while I was working in my office, Deborah Kay Davis walked by. I thought she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. When she passed by, it was all over for me. I was blown away—Head over heels in love. I frantically picked up the phone and called my mother in West Virginia. ‘Mom, I can’t believe it. You’re not going to believe this, Mom. I just saw the girl I’m going to marry.’ ‘What’s her name?’ ‘I don’t know, Mom. I haven’t met her yet. But I have to go. I’ll find out and call you back.’ My poor mother! She must have thought I’d lost my mind. But I’d never been so clearheaded in my life. I left my office and went searching for this girl in the warehouse. Sherlock Holmes couldn’t have done a better job of tracking her down, and eventually, I found myself standing outside the ladies’ restroom, waiting for her to emerge. She walked out. I introduced myself. We were engaged three and a half weeks later – and married four months after that!”

Michael’s next break came soon after being asked to play keyboard in a young Amy Grant’s band. He began touring, and Amy’s managers, Mike Blanton and Dan Harrell saw a wealth of potential in Michael (and another young new talent, Kathy Troccoli). Still, they were unsuccessful in finding a record company to sign them. One door closing is an opportunity for another door opening, and as a result, they started Reunion Records. In 1983, Michael released his first album, The Michael W. Smith Project. Debbie, Michael’s wife, wrote the lyrics for Project. This debut album was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Gospel Performance. Michael’s trademark song, Friends, debuted on this first album.

Multi-Platinum artist, best-selling author, and acclaimed actor Michael W. Smith continues to live out his dream; he releases new music regularly and performs around the world to sold-out crowds of loyal and inspired fans. Smith is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in Contemporary Christian music and has achieved considerable success in the mainstream music industry. Throughout his storied career, Smith has recorded 32 #1 hit songs, including “Place in This World,” “Here I Am to Worship,” “Friends,” “Awesome God,” and “Great is the Lord.” The Australian singer-songwriter weaves his journey of sorrow, doubt, hope, and expectation into songs that echo far beyond his life, compelling listeners to long for their One, true home, and the One who will never leave them.
