– Granger Smith released today a collaboration of his current single "That's Why I Love Dirt Roads" featuring Christian Rapper Lathan Warlick.
Smith's wife, Amber, introduced him to Warlick's Instagram several months ago and was drawn to his rebranding of different songs that portray his own testimonies of life battles and subsequent renewal.
In a May 27 Instagram post, Smith shared Warlick's clip with a note, "A few months ago, Amber found @lathanwarlick and showed me his insta page. He was taking popular tunes, adding his own lyrics and completely rebranding the songs with his own stories of life, struggle, rebirth and testimony. I loved it instantly."
"I reached out via DM and we hit it off right away. (And one day we'll take our boys fishin) This dude, through his own path, has pulled the layers back on life and sees things in a new way...with truth, integrity and God first. I only hope that one day I can see as clearly as he does."
Warlick raps over the track:
"You never know what to expect or what's coming next when riding them dirt roads, the gravel and dust might throw you off if I'm ready or not only God knows.
It's hard trynna hold it together when I lost a couple of people along the ride,
wish I could roll back the hands on a clock just to tell 'em, "I love you" just one more time."
The collaboration is released fresh on the heels of the announce of Smith's new twice-weekly "Live at the Yee Yee Farm: Shop Set." Last Monday, Smith premiered his "Live at the Yee Yee Farm: Shop Set" on YouTube where he and his band come together at the Yee Yee Shop at his farm and host around a 30-minute set in a relaxing atmosphere at 6:30 p.m. CT on Mondays and Thursdays.
