Granger Smith To Recite Pledge Of Allegiance In 13 Original Colonies, Washington D.C.

Granger SmithWheelhouse Records artist Granger Smith is set to embark on a two-day tour on Sunday, March 6, through this trek doesn’t involve musical performances. Instead, Smith will recite the Pledge of Allegiance at each stop at all 13 original colonies, plus Washington D.C.

The Granger Across Merica Pledge Of Allegiance Tour Powered By Yee Yee Energy will coincide the release of Smith’s album Remington (available March 4).

“I’ve always felt compelled to voice my love of this country,” said Smith. ” My granddad and so many countless others have fought for our freedom. That freedom allows us as Americans to pursue our dreams and I am proof they can come true. I feel blessed to have a platform that may inspire others to remember what this nation was founded on. I hope folks will join me in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance as a symbol of our thanks for those who defend our God-given rights.”

Smith has shown a strong support for military men and women in a variety of ways. He personally founded the 100-Mile Boot Walk to raise awareness surrounding the challenges and needs troops face upon returning home and has benefitted the Boot Campaign. He has also performed several shows overseas for troops. Granger’s popular country boy alter-ego, Earl Dibbles Jr., even pays homage to the United States with his new song, “Merica,” featured on the new album.

Granger Across Merica Pledge of Allegiance Tour Powered by Yee Yee Energy is built into Granger’s album release week activities, which include appearances on the Today Show, Fox & Friends, AOL Build, KTLA and more.

In February, Smith celebrated his first national No. 1 country single with “Backroad Song.”
