Granger Smith will always remember the date of Feb. 27, 2016 -- the day his "Backroad Song" topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
"It was a very special feeling," he reminisces. "For the first time, I was able to attain something that you could stamp on history in country music and say 'On this date, we had a No. 1 song.' I've got some plaques on the wall at home that are very special to me, which means if it never happens again in my career, I could tell my grandkids that it happened on that day.
