EARLY LIFE

Granger Smith was born in Dallas, Texas. When he was fourteen, he became interested in music and taught himself guitar and by the age of 15 he was playing smalltown stages in North Texas. At 19, Smith recorded and self-released his debut album with funds coming from friends and peers on campus who pre-paid him for the album. The non-traditional approach to an album release paid off when Smith landed a songwriting deal with EMI Music Publishing.

Granger Smith's self-release debut album opened the doors to Music City, with a publishing deal under his belt he made the move to Nashville, Tennesse. The following years would prove crucial for Smith as he focused on all aspects of the industry, from songwriting and guitar playing to learning the ins and outs of studios and recording equiptment. Smith would tour and independetly release several more albums over the years before making waves in 2013 with his album Dirt Road Driveway, which hit No.1 on the iTunes Store. Peaking at No. 15 on the U.S. country charts, Smith rode the wave of success into 2015 when he signed a record deal with Broken Bow Music Group label imprint, Wheelhouse Records.
