Hailing from Florida’s panhandle, Grant Maloy Smith® is a singer/songwriter of COUNTRY/ROOTS music - an artful blend of country, bluegrass, and folk music. Raised in Hazard, Kentucky, his maternal grandmother filled his head with her beloved “mountain music,” old country music, and bluegrass, from a very young age. He took up the guitar, banjo, bass and mandolin, among other instruments, and began writing original songs when he was 17 years old.

His most recent album "Dust Bowl - American Stories" spent 17 weeks on the Billboard charts, including 11 weeks in the TOP 10 of the Americana/Folk Album Sales Chart, and reached as high as #12 on the Country Album Sales Chart, and #2 on the Heatseekers Chart (across all genres). The album continues to earn rave reviews, like this one from NO DEPRESSION, the bible of American Roots music: “Grant’s ability to capture the heartland in his music is amazing ... he has written A heartland masterpiece ... lyrics and music as potent as Woody Guthrie ... sent chills down my spine ... bound to become a classic ... A reminder of the darker period of Bob Dylan, and it’s that good, that memorable...”
