Wheelhouse Records artist, Granger Smith, dominates the charts this week at No. 1 (Billboard, Mediabase and Music Row) with his national debut hit “Backroad Song.” The record has sailed at country radio since impact and is a commanding precursor to his anticipated new album, Remington, out March 4.

“How do I put this into words? Having a #1 song has been a lifelong dream of mine and to achieve this as both a writer and a singer is surreal,” says Granger. “It has been a long road, but such a great adventure and I have so many team members to thank for that. I’m feeling pretty blessed right now.”

“Thrilled, ecstatic, elated – those words can’t begin to express the excitement in the Wheelhouse Records offices today. Achieving a #1 debut single from a debut artist on a debut label imprint is a pretty rare and extraordinary thing,” says Teddi Bonadies, VP of Promotion for Wheelhouse Records. “We’re so grateful to our friends that helped make this dream a reality.”

Granger Smith has captivated the country music world. His success has been earned through relentless touring, a longstanding social media presence that has generated a massive and rabid following, and a deep-rooted pension for songwriting that has always driven his craft.
