Loyal readers, have I got a unique treat for you. On Monday, December 17th, Country Music rising star Granger Smith set up his YEE YEE Clothing pop-up store and performed a surprise acoustic set to hundreds of fans in Pflugerville, Texas. The surprise occasion took place… all in the parking lot of the Living Spaces furniture store in Pflugerville. Can’t make this up. But an incredible time was had by all as the Texas-native took the stage and offered his sincerest thanks for a great year from the local Country Music fan community. Greeted by massive cheers, Smith started strumming his most recent hit, Happens Like That, and set the tone for the brisk December night. From there he swept the crowd away single-handedly with such powerful hits such as You’re In It and Silverado Bench Seat. Amazingly certain acoustic renditions took on whole new life, such as the boot-stomping anthem The Country Boy Song which managed to maintain its hard edge and bite. He also used the time onstage to perform his newest song, They Were There, which is the tie-in single for his Documentary regarding fallen veterans. At the end of the night, Smith brought the tailgate to a close with the fan favorite, If The Boot Fits, and urged concert-goers to stick around for the signing saying he wanted to meet everyone in attendance!
