When Granger Smith and Smithfield team up for a winter tour around the country, fans can expect the best and nothing less. The crowd in Philadelphia definitely got their money’s worth when they witnessed Smith’s Don’t Tread on Me Tour on Saturday night (1/27).
Smithfield started off the show with a bang, combining their backgrounds of country and rock for a fun-filled medley featuring hits like Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River,” Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands,” Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris,” and Faith Hill’s “This Kiss.”
They exploded onto the scene even more so with their own originals, including “When You’re Gone” and “Nothing But the Night.” It wasn’t until “Hey Whiskey,” though, that the audience solidified their love for the up-and-coming country duo hitting radio later this March.
Then it was Smith’s turn to wow the crowd with his kickstarting “Gimme Something” off his recent release, When the Good Guys Win. With Yee Yee clothing scattered all throughout the fans, Smith lived off the energy during his set and incorporated his redneck vendetta into his time on stage.
Playing a lot more of his new record as well as cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles in the upcoming Super Bowl, Smith got the crowd riled up even more on hits and his tour track, “Don’t Tread on Me.”
But Smith didn’t stop there as he switched up his look for the encore into his Earl Dibbles Jr. persona for a clodhopping good time. Everyone sang along to “The Country Boy Song” and put their drinks in the air for the end of a night they’ll remember from here on out.
The Don’t Tread on Me Tour will carry on throughout for the next few weeks. More dates can be found on Granger Smith’s website now.
