Granger Smith to Embark on Patriotic Pledge of Allegiance Tour
Granger Smith is well-known for his patriotism, and he's asking fans to join him in honoring America during his upcoming Pledge of Allegiance Tour, which takes place across two action-packed days in March.
After years of building his avid fan base via independent releases and hard touring, Smith will release his major label debut album, Remington, on March 4. He's already seen its lead single, "Backroad Song," reach the top of Billboard's Country Airplay chart. He has just released a follow-up single, "If the Boots Fits," which is a clever country re-telling of a fairytale theme.
Smith will celebrate the release of the album with a two-day tour titled Granger Across Merica Pledge of Allegiance Tour Powered by Yee Yee Energy, during which he will visit each of the 13 original colonies, as well as Washington, D.C., to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. The tour will take place on March 6-7, with Smith hard at work to keep up with a packed schedule of appearances.
The Texas-based singer-songwriter founded the 100-Mile Boot Walk to raise awareness surrounding the challenges and needs our troops face upon returning home. He has also performed shows overseas for our troops. Remington includes a track from Smith's popular alter ego, Earl Dibbles, Jr., called "Merica," which pays homage to the Land of the Free.
"I've always felt compelled to voice my love of this country," Smith says in a press release. "My granddad and so many countless others have fought for our freedom. That freedom allows us as Americans to pursue our dreams and I am proof they can come true. I feel blessed to have a platform that may inspire others to remember what this nation was founded on. I hope folks will join me in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance as a symbol of our thanks for those who defend our God-given rights."
