Granger Smith has earned his first gold-certified song with "Backroad Song." The singer was presented with a plaque during CMA Fest on Friday (June 9th) when label reps showed up on stage during his Riverfront Stage performance. "Backroad Song" was one of the Top 10 most played country singles of 2016, according to Mediabase.
Granger said, "It has been a childhood dream of mine to achieve a national No. 1 song. Now, with this GOLD certification, that dream has been amplified. To my incredible Wheelhouse team, the confidence of country radio, my incomparable band, crew and support team, my family and friends, and all those who make up Yee Yee Nation – I thank you from the bottom of my heart."
Granger's brand new single, "Happens Like That," was just released to radio. The song is the first release off his upcoming sophomore album, slated to come out this fall.
