Granger Smith and wife Amber are honoring their late son, River Kelly Smith, with a new T-shirt that benefits the Dell Children’s Medical Center.

The River Smith Tribute Shirt, which is on sale now for $21.99, features an excavator adorned with “Riv.” River’s favorite activity was watching excavators scoop dirt. The shirt is available in red, River’s favorite color. 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Dell Children’s Medical Center.

Granger Smith: Heaven Bound Balloons

By now, many have heard of the tragic accident which took the life of Granger and Amber Smith’s youngest son, 3 year old River Smith. It’s taken a lot for me to process this loss, personally, Granger is both one of our Wolf fan favorite superstars, and, being a North Texas native, like family. I can’t help but watch this video Granger posted about a month ago, with a lump in my throat as I think of what he and his wonderful family must be going through. The thoughts and prayers of your Wolf family, and millions of fans worldwide are with you and your family at this time, Granger.

5 Q’s with Randy Rogers

Our friends the Randy Rogers Band open up the 2016 Lone Star Park Music Series Friday, April 8 in Grand Prairie. Randy was recently on The Front Porch Show:

5 Questions with Randy Rogers

  1. “You and the guys have been doing this now for over 15 years. To what would you attribute the success of The Randy Rogers Band?”
  2. On your duet with Willie “Trouble Knows My Name” some pretty crazy things take place on tour in towns like Kansas City, New Orleans and Missoula, Montana of all places. .Are these real accounts?
  3. The new album “Nothing Shines Like Neon” was recorded during a tough time for you personally, and I understand is actually dedicated to a close friend of yours who you lost before the recording began?
  4. As we mentioned, you have been doing this now for a long, long time. When you look at the crop of new Texas artists out there now, who stands out to you?
  5. In the new album you were blessed to record 3 duets with the likes of Jamey Johnson, Allison Kraus and the great Jerry Jeff Walker. What was it like recording the cover of “Taking It As It Comes” with Jerry Jeff in the studio?
