Granger Smith Debuts ‘Tractor’ Music Video, A Tribute to His Late Father
Granger Smith's touching new music video “Tractor” was inspired by dealing with the emotional aftermath of the death of his father.
“I’ve been working, and my brothers have been working for so long on music and traveling and doing our thing, and Dad was always my biggest fan,” Smith told Taste of Country. “He was always back home in Texas, on his ranch, doing his own thing … he was on his tractor every day, all day long.”
After his father passed away, Smith and his brothers tried to fire up his tractor to do some work on the ranch, which Dad was no longer there to do. But the battery was low, and it needed oil, and they didn’t know where he kept his oil can. The incident made them realize they had been so busy that there were things they didn’t even know or ask about their father, who was supporting them through those times from afar.
In his post debuting the new video Granger wrote, "Making this video was very special to me. The man isn't an actor, it's my dad's lifelong best friend. This isn't a music video set, it's dad's barn, dad's field, dad's tractor. I still miss him every day."
