NEW YORK: Sam Smith has agreed to credit Tom Petty as an author of Grammy-nominated hit "Stay With Me" after acknowledging similarities -- which he insists are coincidental -- to "I Won't Back Down."
Representatives for Smith -- whose soulful ballad about a one-night stand has sent the British singer's career soaring since its release in April -- said that they had been contacted by Petty's side over resemblances to his 1989 song.
