As an artist, he has too many hit songs to count. He has recorded and produced his own albums. He may or may not have multiple personalities but heck, that's part of his charm. Texas singer/songwriter Granger Smith is set to release his 9th studio album Dirt Road Driveway on April 16th. With so much under his belt, what can you expect from one of Texas Country's true renaissance men?
Dirt Road Driveway picks right up where his last album Poets and Prisoners left off. Granger does what he does best here with well crafted and very catchy tunes flowing track after track on this new album. Granger has a way to put into words the back-roads, drinking beer in a field, muddy truck tires songs and make them more sincere and enjoyable than most mainstream artists today. In short, you believe he has done those things, or that he may even have a muddy Chevy sitting in his dirt road driveway.
He put his signature ballad stamp on the song "Easy" that is sure to be a hit with couples everywhere. With the coming of age tale "19 Forever" Granger weaves a story all too familiar with young love. And the country boy and girl summer anthem "We Do it in a Field" rounds out a solid album.
Rest easy though, for you fans of his ever popular redneck alter ego Earl Dibbles Jr. there are two EDJ tracks on the album. "The Country Boy Song" is here as well as one new track. Earl contributed a special track to this album called "Country Boy Love." And yes, it is an Earl Dibbles Jr love song... It is a must hear. I really have no words to do it justice.
All in all, Dirt Road Driveway is another in a string of Granger hits. With the release of this album I am sure the momentum will continue for him and his crew. They will sell out show after show and rock crowd after crowd. And I ain't just runnin' my mouth.
