Nashville, TN. – (October 30th, 2020) – Granger Smith today reveals November 27th 2020 as the release date of the second half of his highly-anticipated 10th studio album, Country Things, completing the two-part album which will total 18 songs, including two bonus tracks, giving fans a glimpse of Granger and his family’s current country-state-of-mind.

Country Things is split into two parts but paints one whole picture. The full-length album is meant to be listened to like a rollercoaster ride. It has highs and lows and, in the end, leaves the listener satisfied. With songs on Country Things, Vol 1 such as “Hate You Like I Love You” (6m+ streams to date), a mid-tempo song, and while the title may sound like a contradiction, it really makes total sense. They say the opposite of love is not hate; it’s indifference. Hate is actually a close relative of love and it takes the same passion and the same extreme emotional effort to hate as it does to love. This song shows the struggle of turning love into hate as a last resort to get over an unreciprocated love. Accompanying this song is the title track “Country Things.” Just as it sounds, this song lists an array of “country things” that hold true to what brings peace and a sense of home for Smith and his family. The album also includes a song called “Country & Ya Know It” and is exactly what the listener would expect to close out this first volume – a take on the popular kids’ song “If You’re Happy And You Know It”….with Earl Dibbles Jr.

While Granger’s good pal Earl Dibbles Jr. made one guest appearance on Vol 1 of this release, rumor has it he put his boot down to make himself more present on this half. Listen to Country Things, Vol 1 now and pre-save the second half of this full-length album HERE.
