Bonnie & Taylor Sims Brings Nostalgia with “Cigarette Song” (Exclusive Premiere)
RIAA-certified Gold Americana artists Bonnie & Taylor Sims shares an incredibly relatable acoustic-filled new single “Cigarette Song.”
“This was a song I wrote a few years ago in about 30 minutes. It was one of those songs that just poured out of me. At the time it felt too much like a diary entry and I was a little nervous to share or play it so I shelved it. Two years later while feeling stagnant at songwriters in the round night, I flipped through my journals and found this song and saw it in a whole new light and really loved it. I have a big personality and powerful stage presence so it’s hard for me to embrace the softer, more vulnerable side of myself, but I’ve found there is a lot of strength in softness,” tells Bonnie.

The stunning visual paired with the track makes the song nostalgic and relatable. As the song begins, it starts with lyrics such as “8 years old I smoked my first cigarette / I stole it from my mom and dad” and captures the listener’s attention almost immediately.
Born and raised in Texas, these two artists achieved remarkable international acclaim with their track “I Saw Red.” Garnering more than 280 million streams under their former project, “Everyone Loves and Outlaw,” they secured a significant record deal with Columbia.
Their musical journey included global tours and performances at major festivals. However, recent shifts in the global landscape prompted them to feel a calling to explore a new artistic direction. As a result, they decided to release music under their individual names, embracing a fresh path of creativity.
