ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
7 years ago, in a cramped Texas A&M dorm room, suddenly studying for a history test didn’t seem to matter. A lot of things changed that night as 19 year old Granger Smith scrambled to hear what was playing out of the radio alarm clock on his desk. It was his song. It was a distant dream on the edge of reality, and hearing it for the first time on the local Texas radio station seemed a lot bigger from that tiny wooden bunk that he slept on. It was the first real taste of a journey fueled by passion that was destined to grip him for the rest of his life.

Raised in Dallas, TX, Granger fell in love with country music early on. By age 14, he was balancing football, playing the guitar, and singing cover songs on a regular Texas Opry circuit. A few years later, he decided to start writing his own.

Following graduation from high school, Granger enrolled in Texas A&M University and Corps of Cadets Company E-2. During his freshman year, he completed his first album with ten original tunes appropriately titled, “Waiting On Forever.” The local dancehalls packed ‘em in to watch Granger and his band win over fans one smoky bar at a time. Juggling school, songwriting, local radio performances, and a growing live schedule, Granger signed a contract with the prestigious EMI Music Publishing and agreed to move with them to Nashville,TN.

Upon arriving in Nashville, Granger immersed himself in writing and singing. Spending his days in the studio and writing with his musical heroes, he has garnered the adoration and support of many of country music's most successful writers and executives. Singing his songs in the local clubs and bars in Tennessee and Texas, and even touring with other bands as a steel guitar player, Granger launched his second original album,“Memory Rd.”

After four years in Nashville, and as he continued to grow with his music, he was then able to take what the years had taught him and headquarter his career back in his home state of Texas. In the spring of 2005, he released his third album, “Pockets of Pesos” which once again hit home the distinct driving traditional style that fans expect from Granger Smith. While writing songs for a new publishing company and management team under singer/songwriter Phil Vassar, Granger is currently touring with his band and finishing his education at Texas A&M.

Granger's music has a flair that traditionalists flocked to; its simple sophistication makes it appealing to the masses as well. Through the simple honesty of his lyrics and melodies, combined with his undeniable charisma and quiet charm, Granger is poised to carry on his own musical legacy.

"I have plenty of patience," quips Smith. No one doubts that his patience will pay off.

This is a must buy!
This CD is the best he's done yet. There are of course your upbeat and fun to dance to songs like No Chance for a Slow Dance, Till the Wheels fall off, and a few others, but this CD shows more maturity. Cest La Vi, 16 stiches, and the World is Flat are all deep songs that will move you.

Trey
