Don't Tread on Me

Album: When the Good Guys Win (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is sung by Granger Smith's comedic redneck alter ego Earl Dibbles Jr.

    Smith told Taste of Country the country-rocker about gun and land rights has a little piece of his own beliefs buried inside Dibbles.

    "The Second Amendment thing, he just goes crazy with the Second Amendment," he explained. "And you know I am a gun owner and a concealed handgun owner, but I don't walk around preaching it every day, but Earl can. That's kind of his thing. I love that about Earl."
