Granger Smith Country Things Vol. 2

Country Things Vol. 2 shows Smith’s appreciation for the life lessons he learned growing up in the country and a tribute to the people who made him the man he is today. No matter where you’re from, these new songs will give you an appreciation for how you were raised.

The eight-track album is filled with valuable messages and life lessons, starting out with “Man Made”. Written by Swag Spotlight alum Brett Sheroky and Ian Christian, “Man Made” pays tribute to the importance of women, especially mothers. It raises the question where would men be without their moms? The answer? Absolutely nowhere. “If a man made anything it’s cause / A woman made that man, yes she did.”

Lessons come from “That’s What Love Looks Like” and “Where I Get It From”. Teaching you not only that love is everywhere you look, but to also appreciate the traits your family gave you.

Being a parent may be one of the hardest jobs out there, but Smith reminds us it can be the greatest reward with “Buy a Boy a Baseball”. Written by Brad Rempel, Jon Nite, and Justin Ebach, this song is a reminder that spending quality time with your kids and teaching them how to play sports, how to get their hands dirty, how to pray, the value of a dollar, etc. are the most valuable lessons you can teach them.

This wouldn’t be a Granger Smith album without the appearance of his alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr. He is featured on “Workaholic” and “Diesel” portraying his fun, beer loving self.

Country Things Vol. 1 came out in September and with the two albums combined into one, what a story Smith shares. The greatest lesson of all that’s learned is to appreciate the things that money can’t buy especially quality time with the people who matter the most.
