The City Parks of Clarksburg has announced that chart-topping country music trailblazer, Granger Smith, is set to perform at the Clarksburg Amphitheater on Thursday, May 24, 2018. 
 
The award-winning country star is known for his big hits “If the Boot Fits,” “Happens Like That” and the Billboard No. 1 Single “Backroad Song” – one of the Top 10 Most Played country singles of 2016 according to Mediabase. With over 6 million social media followers and over a quarter of a billion online video views, Smith has amassed a massive audience now known as “Yee Yee Nation” and also has a comical country boy alter-ego known as Earl Dibbles, Jr. who regularly appears on CBS Sports Network’s “Inside College Football.” As Earl Dibbles, Jr., Smith’s hits also include “The Country Boy Song,” “Country Boy Love,” and “City Boy Stuck.”
 
Granger has been lauded by outlets such as People, New York Times, Variety, Forbes, Fox News, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Huffington Post and CMT. He has also performed and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Today Show and Fox & Friends. 
 
John Cooper, Superintendent of Parks, said, “We’re very excited to kick off the summer season with Granger Smith! This will certainly be a great night of country music that you won’t want to miss!”
