Granger Smith announced on Friday (Aug. 28) that he's releasing a two-part album honoring all the Country Things in his life.
Country Things, Vol. 1 will feature eight tracks, including the previously released "That's Why I Love Dirt Roads" along with "Hate You Like I Love You" and the title track.
"Hate You Like I Love You" is a soft, pop-country-leaning tune that finds the narrator attempting to numb the pain of a breakup by trying to make himself feel disdain in place of love. "Country Things," meanwhile, is a traditional-style number, in which a fiddle greets the listener before Smith lays out all the familiar elements of country life including dirt roads, fried catfish and corner stores.
