If you were to say, "Granger Smith is to YouTube in Texas, what Andy Samberg is to it everywhere else." You wouldn't get much of an argument out of me. Besides writing and singing hit songs, Granger and his band have a reputation for developing characters and funny songs, of which they make videos for -- then upload to YouTube. But Granger's latest "country boy" character is proving to be a game-changer for the guys.

In June Granger's character, Earl Dibble's Jr. released his first single, "The Country Boy Song" which immediately shot straight to No. 1 on iTunes -- above guys named Church, Chesney and Bentley, read more here.

So of course with kind of success, Earl has been making appearances at Granger shows for the past couple months and this Wednesday East Texas will get their first taste of "The Country Boy" Earl Dibbles Jr. as Granger returns to Electric Cowboy.

This week Granger and company will also be hitting up Houston, TX and Rebels Honky Tonk on Thursday (9/6), and then it's on to College Station, TX for Texas Music Aggie Style at Kyle Field Friday (9/7). Click here to see when they'll be coming to a club near you.
Earl is also holding down the RTX Sunday Video this week, with his hugely popular debut single. Click here to download it on iTunes.

Sometimes I wonder what Granger Smith would do without YouTube -- Did you know Granger Smith was Adolf Hitler's favorite artist? Not exactly sure if that's a good thing though.
