Smith, Dibbles join forces

Monday, April 1, 2019 – Granger Smith teamed up with Earl Dibbles Jr. for their first duet ever, "Holler."

In reality, Smith and Dibbles, a hillbilly character, are one and the same because Dibbles is the alter ego of Smith.

The two debuted the video over the weekend set to the backdrop of a throw down at the Yee Yee Farm.

"Earl shows up at some of my concerts and occasionally takes to the stage to perform one of his hits, which is always an honor. When we were recording 'Holler,' it just became obvious that Earl's stamp needed to be on this track. And the treatment for the video was a perfect backdrop to pair up," said Smith.

"They said they was gonna blow'd stuff up, so I said 'kay," added Dibbles.

The video also includes appearances by Jared Outlaw, Mat Best, Dale Brisby, Chad Prather, Robert Terkla, Matt Carriker, Justin Rackley, Nick Irving, Robert Oberst and Kent Rollins, who have received notoriety for social media, and several Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

The high-energy track was written by Smith, Jordan Schmidt, Andy Albert and Justin Wilson and produced by Jordan Schmidt and Smith.

Instead, he has existed in the underground, never quite getting his break on country radio until now. "Remington" is full of radio friendly country music complete with elements of hip hop beats and Auto Tuned vocals, the same sound that Jason Aldean frequently tops the charts with. Smith's recent signing to Aldean's Broken Bow Records imprint, Wheelhouse, suggests ...
4x4
CD review - 4x4 Granger Smith may be new to some, but the Texas native is a seasoned veteran. The University of Texas grad has seven studio albums and a live one to his credit. Now he adds an EP, "4x4" to his discography. It is essentially an 18-minute country music state of the union with an unoriginal four-song collection of boilerplate redneck bro country. The opener "Backroad Song" is a catchy mandolin driven road anthem in the vein of Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise. ...
