Interview with GRANGER SMITH

Interview by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

Texas-based country music singer/songwriter Granger Smith is in Australia with a headline appearance at the Groundwater Festival on the Gold Coast, along with sideshows in Sydney, Melbourne and Townsville. Granger kicked off the mini-tour at the Rooty Hill RSL in the heart of Western Sydney.

We sat down with Granger in Sydney shortly before he hit the stage and got to talk about his career to date.

Granger has been writing, recording and performing for nearly 25 years, with much of that being self-financed and produced, before landing a publishing deal in 2000 and moving to Nashville for a few years to learn more about song-writing and recording gear, after which he went home to Texas to finish his college degree and start a band.
