Country artist Granger Smith makes his Great New York State Fair debut with a show Friday, August 30 at 8 p.m. during the Chevrolet Music Festival at Chevy Court. Smith was last seen in Central New York two years ago, as part of Luke Bryan’s tour stop at the St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview. Concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet and are free with admission to the Fair.
Over the course of his groundbreaking career, Granger Smith has amassed a massive and rabid audience now known as “Yee Yee Nation” built through heavy touring and grassroots fan engagement. He now has a social media following of nearly 7 million and over a quarter of a billion online video views. Flagship artist on BBR Music Group's Wheelhouse Records, Smith broke onto the national scene with Remington, an album that garnered him the No. 1 smash "Backroad Song." Smith was also awarded a BMI Country Award for writing, producing, publishing and performing "Backroad Song" and followed it with the Top 5 hit, "If The Boot Fits." "Backroad Song" was one of the Top 10 Most Played country singles of 2016 according to Mediabase and has been certified RIAA Platinum. He was nominated as Best New Country Artist for the 2017 iHeartRadio Awards and was included in the 2017 crop of artists honored during the CRS "New Faces" show. He released his current full-length album When The Good Guys Win on October 27, which has spawned the Top 15 hit "Happens Like That" and current fast-rising single "You’re In It." Smith recently released his first-ever book “If You’re City, If You’re Country,” which immediately hit No. 1 on Amazon best-selling lists upon its pre-order announcement.
