MESCALERO, N.M. (December 3, 2016) — Get ready for a rootin’-tootin’ good time at Inn of the Mountain Gods this February, as the resort welcomes rising star Tyler Farr on Feb. 11 and country staple Granger Smith on Feb. 17.
Missouri native Tyler Farr has seen a meteoric rise to success, not just in the country music space, but in the entire music industry. Like most of today’s stars, Farr began his career off the stage, penning hits for the likes of Cole Swindell and Joe Nichols before releasing his debut single “Hot Mess” in 2012.
While “Hot Mess” wasn’t a huge commercial success, the critics’ responded positively to Farr’s debut. This critical buzz and hit singles like “Whiskey in My Water” helped launch his debut album, “Redneck Crazy,” to the no. 5 on the Billboard 200 and platinum certification.
His most recent album, “Suffer in Peace,” continued the 32-year-old’s rise to super-stardom peaking at no. 4 on the Billboard 200 and again reaching platinum certification. Tickets for Tyler Farr’s Feb. 11 performance start at $25 and can be purchased at TicketsMaster.com or InnoftheMountainGods.com.
Dallas native Granger Smith taught himself to play guitar at 14 thinking it would be a fun way to get girls, however, he quickly found music to be a passion worth pursuing and moved to Nashville at 19. Smith spent four years in Nashville learning the ins and outs of the industry as a songwriter with EMI Music Publishing before returning to Texas A&M to finish college and start his own band.
Once back in Texas, Granger Smith didn’t seek out a record deal, opting to hit an aggressive tour schedule while independently producing seven albums from 1998 to 2015. His final independent effort, “Dirt Road Highway,” even reached no. 1 on iTunes as it sold 69,000 copies.
Smith finally signed his first recording deal with Wheelhouse Records in 2015, releasing his label debut “Remington,” in March of 2016. His relentless touring and online presence as an independent artist paid off, as “Remington” climbed to no. 3 on the Top Country charts while selling more than 65,000 copies.
