42 Thoughts I Had The First Time I Listened To Granger Smith’s New Album “Remington”

What a major label debut from Granger Smith.

Remington is Granger Smith’s first project under the major label umbrella of Broken Bow Records and it sure didn’t disappoint. Granger’s smooth twang is just flat out easy to love. Every track on Remington sounds like it could be a number one single, regardless of the topic. Whether it is a love song, party song, small town anthem or heavy hitter like “5 More Minutes,” Granger is able to speak straight to your soul and make it sound really damn good. You might as well call it “Granger Smith’s Greatest Hits: Volume 1.”

I sat down, played every song and wrote down what I was thinking while I listened to it. Here it goes:
