His 2016 album, Beneath Still Waters, is his first solo record in almost 20 years and sees him pick up an acoustic guitar too. A classic country record, Granger reimagines old country hits like “Warm Red Wine," "Back in My Baby's Arms Again" and "Lovin' on Backstreets," all of it reminiscent of George Jones.

Stopping by our trucks to sit on the tailgate at Pickathon, Granger and Dan Cable of the podcast Dan Cable Presents had a great chat about his deep Cajun roots stemming from his great uncles, The Balfa Brothers, and his love and talent for songwriting.
