Country music sensation Granger Smith is making a stop in Southwest Louisiana in less than a week now. He will be live in Kinder, Louisiana at Coushatta Casino Resort on Friday night, August 5th for a big show.

Granger sure has moved up in the music scene. We can remember when he was a Texas Country artist playing all over the Texas markets and occasionally even playing here in Southwest Louisiana.

I specifically remember one time when Granger Smith played right here in Lake Charles. He played at Yesterday's Night Club which is now where Walk-ons is located. I remember going to that show.

A few years ago when I heard the name Granger Smith again when he signed his first record deal in Nashville and released his first single Backroad Song and we started playing it on Gator 99.5.

I was like, hold up I know this guy from somewhere. You may not know but I like getting hats from the artists at concerts that I attend and I thought I think I have one of his.  Well, I went fishing around in my hat collection and sure enough, I found one.

Granger sure has blown up since then releasing more big hits like If The Boot Fits, Happens Like That, and You're In It. 

Tickets for the show are on sale at Coushatta but keep listening to Gator 99.5 to win tickets all week long. We want to send you to the show right here on Gator 99.5!
