Earl Dibbles Jr. is the alter-ego of country singer Granger Smith, who has racked up a social media following of over 1 million fans. Between drinking beer out of a boot on stage, to waving a flag around like a true country hick, Earl’s followers can’t get enough of his take on country life. In his new illustrated book “If You’re City, If You’re Country”, Earl walks through 50 different scenarios, comparing and contrasting how city folks and country folks do things very differently. Earl addresses many topics such as fast food, huntin’, fishin’, shootin’ the breeze, how to browse the web, and politics. Earl’s hilarious take on the country versus city debate will have longtime country fans and new converts in for quite the laugh.
Smith explained the process, “This book has been several years in the making and I couldn’t be more excited to finally put the idea into fruition. Writing these jokes as a creative outlet has been the product of so many late night after show laughs with the band. Earl in his entire existence has been a walking caricature and finally seeing him in all his glory come to life in illustrations seems so natural. Ultimately, I hope it makes people smile,” he added, “and the thought of that makes me happy.”
Smith is still on tour until the end of the year!
