A Texas native raised in Dallas, country singer and songwriter Granger Smith began his professional recording career while he was attending Texas A&M, completing his first album, 1998’s Waiting on Forever, during his freshman year. He self-released five more studio albums during the next 15 years before earning wide distribution with 2013’s Dirt Road Driveway (written, recorded, and produced by Smith himself in his home studio). His breakthrough came in 2015 when his 4×4 EP yielded three big Top 20 country hits. He carried that success into the next decade with hit albums like When the Good Guys Win (2017) and Country Things (2020). Smith’s 11th studio set, Moonrise, appeared in 2022.
