Granger Smith released part two of his highly-anticipated 10th studio album, Country Things. With two parts totaling a sum of 16 tracks, in addition to two bonus tracks on the physical and digital full-length album, Granger (and his good pal Earl Dibbles Jr.) give fans a glimpse of their current country-state-of-mind.
Granger’s street-week is jam-packed with exciting appearances.
On Monday, November 30, Granger will be Facebook’s Artist of the Day featured on the Music on Facebook Page where he will talk about his new album live on set of his “Diesel (feat. Earl Dibbles Jr.)” music video shoot.
Split into two parts, but painting one whole picture,Country Things is all about the things that money and politics and status can’t buy. The full-length album is meant to be listened to like a rollercoaster ride. It has highs and lows and, in the end, leaves the listener satisfied.
Released in September, Country Things, Vol.1 showcases the man, the father, the performer, and bona fide artist Granger has become. With songs such as “I Kill Spiders,” “Heroes,” and “Country & Ya Know It feat. Earl Dibbles Jr.”, Vol. 1 takes listeners through the up and down journey leaving them with heartfelt belly-laughs.
Country Things, Vol. 2 is the final loop of the rollercoaster ride with songs such as “6 String Stories,” “Buy A Boy A Baseball,” and “Workaholic (feat. Earl Dibbles Jr.” that bring it all home.
The physical full-length album makes for the perfect stocking-stuffer. Old or young, this album is for anyone who appreciates (or needs a reminder) of the little things in life that are sometimes overlooked.
To celebrate the release of Country Things, Granger launched an unprecedented contest for fans to win a chance at bringing home his very own truck. The contest runs until December 4 at 11:59pm CT and five lucky fans will be chosen to win a trip to the Yee Yee Farm in Texas and participate in a contest to win Granger’s truck.
For every $1 spent on the Yee Yee Apparel website is an entry to the contest. One lucky winner will bring home the truck, while the others will receive mini prizes.
The album and contest are just another layer of Granger’s multifaceted life. Granger has his own outdoor apparel company called Yee Yee Apparel in which they have been able to donate over $230,000 to various charities they feel passionate about with the revenue generated from this company.
From his family YouTube show “The Smiths,” to well-known alter ego Earl Dibbles Jr., to his No. 1 book “If You’re City, If You’re Country,” to his Granger Smith Podcast, to his hero-honoring documentary “They Were There: A Hero’s Documentary,” to his work with The River Kelly Fund, the chart-topper continues to build a brand synonymous with those who cherish hard work and those who want to live life to its fullest.
