This song about a country back road is the first fruit of Granger Smith's 4x4
EP. The record is a collaboration with producer Frank Rogers, who has also worked with Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, and Josh Turner.
Granger Smith recalled to The Boot
; "When Frank and I agreed to dive in together, he said, 'Well, send me what you have.' I think I sent him three or four … It was kind of rough, me and my guitar on a small recorder. He texted back and said, "Good stuff. There's some good moments in all of these, but one sounds like a hit right away: 'Backroad Song,' I really want to jump in on."
