Granger Smith and Earl Dibbles Jr. Are Releasing a Book: ‘I Hope It Makes People Smile’
Granger Smith's alter ego, Earl Dibbles Jr., is getting the cartoon treatment with the release of his first-ever book If You’re City, If You’re Country.
Smith and Dibbles shared the news with fans on the singer's Instagram page via a hilarious video of the two sitting together on a front porch, and at least one of them looking extremely confused.
“This book has been several years in the making and I couldn’t be more excited to finally put the idea into fruition," Smith says. The book is set for release on Aug. 21.
"Writing these jokes as a creative outlet has been the product of so many late night, after show laughs with the band. Earl in his entire existence has been a walking caricature and finally seeing him in all his glory come to life in illustrations seems so natural," Smith continues. "Ultimately, I hope it makes people smile and the thought of that makes me happy."
What makes this project even cooler for all of Smith's Yee Yee Nation is the fact that the book will be accompanied by a 5-song EP of some Dibbles favorites — the very same songs that Earl and Granger are performing this summer while out on Smith's Don’t Tread on Me Tour.
Also later this month, the ‘two’ will head overseas for their second-ever tour in Australia.
