featuring Earl Dibbles Jr. on the grandstand stage
With his country boy alter ego Earl Dibbles Jr., Granger wrote Dirt Road Driveway, a piece that has come to define his strong conviction and a sense of style quite different from what most enthusiasts have become used to when it comes to the genre. His breaking out was largely seen as testimony to the fact that contemporary culture appreciates even what goes beyond the commonplace.
While Dirt Road Driveway stood at number one on iTunes countdown in April 16,2013, Granger Smiths success was quickly followed by the release of 7 studio albums, a single live album and 2 EP’S. He signed his first ever recording deal in 2015.
In his song called “Sleeping”, Smith muses about feeling different and seeing the world from a different set of eyes from the past.
In his bio, Granger Smith says that the music industry has taught him that one cannot really choose life as he is the life itself, an un-escapable truth that applies to everyone no matter what they do or say to refute it.
“Backroad Song” is the lead single from Granger’s highly anticipated new album, REMINGTON, available everywhere March 4, 2016!
