No-frills country crooner Granger Smith is all about life's simple pleasures. Whether he's singing about making love in a field or joking about the stereotypes of country living as his alter ego Earl Dibbles Jr., the gifted young songwriter approaches his material with an ease and modesty that never fail to endear him to fans. His down-home personality and friendly voice have long made him a live favorite in his home state of Texas, and now audiences around the country will get a chance to see him perform as he hits the road on tour.
Born in Texas, Smith took up the guitar at age 14, teaching himself to play and penning his first songs. At age 19, he moved to Nashville and quickly landed a songwriting contract. He self-released his debut album Waiting on Forever in 1998, impressing critics with a strong collection of songs that hinted at the future success he would enjoy. In addition to self-releasing five more albums throughout the '00s, Smith has traveled to Iraq to perform for soldiers and played two shows at the White House. In 2013 he made his major label debut with Dirt Road Driveway, landing at No. 15 on the Country Albums chart -- a feat that has fans eagerly awaiting his upcoming tour.
