Granger Smith is dominating the country radio charts this week with his major label debut single, “Backroad Song.”

“How do I put this into words? Having a No.1 song has been a lifelong dream of mine and to achieve this as both a writer and a singer is surreal,” he expressed. “It has been a long road, but such a great adventure and I have so many team members to thank for that. I’m feeling pretty blessed right now.”

“Thrilled, ecstatic, elated – those words can’t begin to express the excitement in the Wheelhouse Records offices today. Achieving a No.1 debut single from a debut artist on a debut label imprint is a pretty rare and extraordinary thing,” said Teddi Bonadies, VP of Promotion for Wheelhouse Records. “We’re so grateful to our friends that helped make this dream a reality.”

“Backroad Song” is the lead single from Smith’s forthcoming album, Remington. The 14-track project also features his wildly-popular alter-ego, Earl Dibbles, Jr. Remington is due out March 4.
