Up and coming star Granger Smith is celebrating his first number one hit with “Backroad Song.” He said, “How do I put this into words? Having a #1 song has been a lifelong dream of mine and to achieve this as both a writer and a singer is surreal. It has been a long road, but such a great adventure and I have so many team members to thank for that. I’m feeling pretty blessed right now.”
As far as the inspiration behind the track, Granger said he wanted to write a very relaxed song about the freedom of the open road that didn’t tug you too far left or right and that wasn’t about gaining and losing love. He said, ” You could roll the windows down and enjoy a sunny summer day, and that’s what I was going for as a single, and so I wrote it from the beginning on back roads in my truck to try to emulate what that could be.”
His debut album Remington is due out in stores on March 4th.
