Home Cooked Meal

Album: When the Good Guys Win (2017)
  • Granger Smith closes his When The Good Guys Win album with one of most meaningful tracks, which pays tribute to family and taking things at a slower pace.

    "I am proud of that song," Smith told Billboard. "It's a song that when you're putting an album together, and you have about twenty-five songs - which is what we had before we had to narrow it down to fourteen - it's not one that you're going to jump up and down about because it's a radio single. But, I was adamant that it was a song that I wanted to be delivered, and that message needed to be heard. I wanted that song to be the last track - the last feeling, the last spot before the album is over with. I know that in this world today, sequencing and order of songs really doesn't matter like it used to. It's kind of a lost art. Songs like 'Home Cooked Meal,' for a lot of people won't be heard, but I love it. I'm proud of it. That's one that is very important to me."
