Earl Dibbles Jr., the alter-ego of country star Granger Smith, is releasing his first book on August 21. “If You’re City, If You’re Country” is a collection of “comedic anecdotes comparing and contrasting city life and country life as narrated through a cartoon Earl Dibbles Jr.” a press release explained.
“This book has been several years in the making and I couldn’t be more excited to finally put the idea into fruition,” Granger said. Apparently a lot of the jokes came to be in late-night after show sessions with his band.
“Ultimately, I hope it makes people smile,” he added, “and the thought of that makes me happy.”
Been practicin’ my words, and I wrote a book for y’all! It’s called “If You’re City, If You’re Country”. It shows how country boys do things a little different than city boys…
