At Home With Granger Smith
The album was crafted and recorded on the road and at home. Smith says he built a mobile studio on his tour bus for writing, editing and some recording and then did all of his lead vocal parts at his home.
"With the album evolving this way on the road, country fairs, parking lots, green rooms and hotel lobbies, it truly reflects the source of the inspiration: the fans," Smith says.
Frank Rogers and Derek Wells helped Smith produce When the Good Guys Win, his second studio album on Wheelhouse Records and the follow-up to Remington, which featured the chart-topping "Backroad Song."
