Granger Smith just announced a two-part album and the first volume is coming next month.
The singer/songwriter, along with his wife and children, revealed the news on their YouTube channel, The Smiths, sharing that the first installment of the project arrives on September 25.
Dubbed Country Things, the eight-song volume offers fans a glimpse into the family’s life after the tragic passing after River Smith, who drowned in their backyard pool in the summer of 2019. Now, Smith has a new outlook on life and music.
“My life is just…different now. Or maybe a better way to put it is, I see life differently now,” he shares. “This collection focuses on the things that money and politics and status can’t buy. The things that you can center on and I want to live my life for. The things you want to raise your kids with and find joy in. The country things.”
Fans who pre-order Country Things, Vol. 1 will receive three instant grat tracks, including “That’s Why I Love Dirt Roads,” “Hate You Like I Love You,” and the title track “Country Things.”
Country Things Vol. 1 is the follow-up to Smith’s 2017 release When the Good Guys Win.
