Granger Smith and Earl Dibbles, Jr.
Granger Smith is more than just an accomplished singer/songwriter. He’s more than a great live performer. Smith is an all-around entertainer. Smith has gone so far as to create an alter-ego — and overall-wearing, dipping, shotgun-toting hillbilly named Earl Dibbles, Jr. — to show off a different side of his music and add another dimension of entertainment to his live show. Abilene will get the best of both worlds, as Granger will be performing, and bringing Earl to the Lucky Mule Saloon on Friday night, February 8th.
Cost: 21 and over $10.00 in advance, 18+ welcome with ID for an additional $3

Granger Smith, the Texas born-and-bred singer/songwriter, has been busy reinventing the face of traditional country one chart-topping single at a time. By consistently providing blended hits that are well outside the realm of “typical,” Granger’s music provides a refreshing and unique variation on the growing independent country music scene.
Over a decade into his career, the Texas A&M alum has already checked several items off his bucket list. Played by invitation at the White House? Check. Paid his respects to American soldiers? Absolutely, both through multiple tours in Iraq and Kuwait and through his annual 100-mile soldier walk. This year, he was asked to partner with The Boot Campaign to further raise awareness of our troops’ needs as they return home from combat.
Granger has seven top-10 Texas Music Chart hits to his credit, including ‘Colorblind’, ‘Don’t Listen to the Radio’, ‘I Almost Am’ and ‘Sleeping on the Interstate’.
His game plan has been good to him so far. Granger has had 8 Top 10 singles on the Texas Music Charts and he’s even successfully launched a crowd-pleasing alter-ego, “country boy” Earl Dibbles Jr. The idea was born when Granger and his brother were having some fun with a camera on their childhood ranch. “Earl represents at least half of my family, so it was easy to jump in my old truck, grab my shotgun and slip right into character,” Granger admits. They could never have imagined the viral success Dibbles has become, with his own single ‘The Country Boy Song’, music video and legions of fans.
