62 West is the Country/Pop duo of Dave Smith and Dave McAfee. The two musicians are originally from Oklahoma, but never met there. Dave Smith is from Altus, OK, and Dave McAfee is from Lawton, OK. Both moved to the Dallas area early in their careers, and became successful in the DFW music scene. Their paths crossed a few times, but they never worked together. Each moved to Nashville eventually, and the two finally met on a demo recording session. They hit it off personally and musically. Dave Smith became an accomplished session musician, successful singer/songwriter, and recording studio owner. Dave McAfee landed drumming jobs with artists such as Pearl River, Bryan White, Wade Hayes, and eventually and currently, Toby Keith. The two have worked together in the recording studio for over ten years. Finally, they decided to make a record together. Both careers have taken them to the same part of Nashville ( they live less than three miles apart by coincidence ). Is it a coincidence that Altus, OK. and Lawton, OK. are connected by a virtually straight highway? That highway is Oklahoma State Hwy. 62. Dave and Dave have called themselves and their first CD '62 West'.
