DUST OFF your boots and head to The Stage on Bay for a night with two of country’s current faves.
Granger Smith got his start as a 19-year-old with a fresh Nashville contract. The Texas native has traveled the world performing for soldiers and has performed at The White House three times.
Smith’s albums have a history of chart favorability—the 2013 record Dirt Road Driveway peaked at Number 15 on the U.S. country charts and Number 11 on the indie charts. The follow-up EP, ‘4x4,’ debuted at number 6 on the Top Country Charts, climbing to number 51 on the Billboard 200.
After landing the Number 1 spot on the iTunes country album charts in 2016 thanks to his album Remington, Granger Smith has been a favorite with genre fans.
The record, produced by Smith himself and Frank Rogers, included the smash hit “Backroad Song.” The song rushed up the mainstream radio charts, becoming the most-played in America on Valentine’s Day 2016 before the album had even been released. That year, Smith took home the BMI Country Award for “Backroad Song.” This year, he was nominated as Best New Country Artist at the iHeart Radio Music Awards.
Appalachia native and The Voice alum Morgan Wallen joins Smith’s tour. The singer, who is influenced by country, classic rock, and hip-hop alike, recently released a hit single “Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line. His debut album is due in 2018.
