Granger Smith just released two of his “favorite” songs “Hate You Like I Love You” and “Country Things” from his upcoming new album, Country Things Vol. 1.
The Yee Yee Nation pack leader shared the album news via Instagram on Thursday (Aug. 27) saying “this is my 10th studio album and I feel like it’s also my best.”
“All that to say, this is my 10th studio album and I feel like it’s also my best. (Including Vol 2 coming later) My hope is that these tunes…from the light hearted windows down songs, to the more deep thinkin’ ones, connect with you like they do with me.”
He continued to tell fans that much has happened over the last 20 months of his life so he wrote some songs about it, as he says music helps him forget about life.
“A lot of life has happened these past 20 months and on & off, through it all, I’ve been hunkered up in my little home studio singing about it,” Smith explained. “Sometimes I use music to forget about life. Sometimes I use it to remember it. Most times I use it to feel the emotions deeper. I think we all kinda do that.”
The album will also feature his already released single “That’s Why I Love Dirt Roads.”

Country Things Vol. 1 is scheduled to be released on September 25, you can pre-order and pre-save the new album HERE.
