Midnight Rodeo is giving the Azalea City a chance to tune up for the Halloween weekend with a stellar country music up-and-comer who gives you two for the price of one. WeMo’s premiere honky-tonk could not have picked a better country act for the Halloween season than Granger Smith, but when you book Smith you also get his alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr.
Dibbles is a Beech-Nut-spittin’, backwoods redneck with “a 12-gauge by his waterbed.” He prides himself on his dedication to the white-trash lifestyle, which he lauds at great length in songs such as “The Country Boy Song.” Smith is a country artist with a wholesome, good-ol’-country-boy-next-door image. Both can be found on Smith’s latest EP, “4X4.” This appropriately named four-track release should satisfy fans until Smith’s next full-length recording. “4X4” is filled with the memorable hooks and smooth vocal work that has made pop country a popular sub-genre.
