Granger Smith leaving country music to pursue ministry

Granger Smith is answering a higher calling.
The country singer has revealed that he is quitting the music industry to concentrate on ministry.

“This message is so difficult to post. The words for this caption are so hard to find,” he wrote with a video he posted Tuesday on social media. “Not because I don’t believe in the truth of them, but because this marks the end of the longest era in my life! Touring…24 years of it.”

Smith will finish his performances with his “Like A River” shows this summer. The tour is named after his son, River, who passed away at 3 years old in 2019 after a tragic accident.

In his video, the singer said he was scared to make the announcement.

“I have felt a strong urge to pursue ministry,” Smith said. “This doesn’t mean I’m going to start a church, or a crusade, or a revival. This means that me and my family are going to serve our local church.”

Smith said he’s been studying at Southern Baptist Seminary and enjoying a time of “learning and growing.” He also has a book called, “Like A River,” coming out on August 1.

“I am so encouraged and hopeful and excited and joyful about the next chapter, but to a large extent, I have no idea what it will look like,” he wrote in the caption. “I just want to glorify God the best way that I can.”

His tour stops at Oshkosh Arena in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on April 13.
