Granger Smith Announces He’s Leaving Music to Focus on Ministry
Granger Smith made an announcement that shook the Texas Country world, however, we respect his announcement. In the video, Granger tells us, "This summer will be my last tour. I am so encouraged and hopeful and excited and joyful about the next chapter, but to a large extent, I have no idea what it will look like. I just want to glorify God the best way that I can. I want to learn and grow and serve my local church and allow my pastors to equip and affirm those next steps. Lord willing, I want to be used to help people find their purpose." Blessings on your next chapter, Granger!
We were so fortunate to have Granger and of course, his alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr, play in our backyard at Schroeder Hall many times in the past. He has such a huge fan base in the Crossroads area. Check out the awesome picture I found of Granger posing in front of the iconic Dancehall!
SO MUCH HISTORY:
There is so much history within the walls of Schroeder Hall. My absolute favorite part of Schroeder Hall is the back wall with all the autographs. The amount of musical history on those walls is absolutely incredible Including the spot where Charlie Robison bumped his head on the low ceiling on his way to take the Schroeder Stage. Here is a snapshot of some new guy's autograph back in 2011. Maybe you have heard of Cody Johnson? If only these walls could talk.
From the early days of Ray Price, George Jones, Ernest Tubb, Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson to the more recent shows of Aaron Watson, Old Dominion, and Midland. As of late, they have also given us comedy, and rock shows featuring Saliva and Everclear and even Tejano shows with David Lee Garza and Jay Perez just to name a few. Schroeder Hall has brought so much music and history and we are very thankful for that!
