Cam checked off some major boxes for her career this year by opening for Sam Smith this year in June and July, like playing at Madison Square Garden. The pairing seemed like fate as Cam, Smith and Tyler Johnson co-penned “Palace,” featured on Smith’s most recent album. Prior to heading out on the road, Cam called Smith “...one of the greatest singers of our generation. To be associated with his show – that voice, those songs, that heart – it’s a tremendous compliment, and I can’t wait to share my music with his audience every night.”
