Country singer-songwriter Granger Smith, touring behind his 2017 album “When the Good Guys Win” (Wheelhouse Records), has set a date for Sarasota. He’ll be playing the White Buffalo Saloon on Friday, Oct. 19. The Texas native, who turns 39 on Sept. 4, has released nine albums. “When the Good Guys Win” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard country album chart.
“What a journey it’s been since I decided to chase this crazy dream,” Smith says on his website, GrangerSmith.com. “We’ve played 10 countries, three continents, even the White House a few times, and I still can’t believe it all started with a few guitar chords.
“I have a song called ‘Sleeping On The Interstate’ where I wrote, ‘Connecting map dots like poets and prisoners, trying to live more like a lover than sinner, slave to dreams so far away.’ That’s me. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from the music business, it’s that you don’t really choose this life, you are this life. That’s the truth no matter if you’re selling albums or not. I do what I love and love what I do, and there’s no sweeter freedom than that.
