For Smith, being able to share about Jesus is the most important thing he could do.
“There is not another #1 song I can write, album I can release, sold out concert I can perform, that is more important than this,” Smith wrote on Instagram. “I don’t want the Granger Smith name to be famous, instead I want to proclaim the name of Christ! ... I want Him to be known! And I want to know Him more. That is the real reason I’m leaving tour.”
