They say you can’t really know somebody until you walk a mile in their shoes. But we have a pretty good idea about what kind of person Granger Smith is, even though we haven’t laced up his combat boots. Last year, the Texas country star slipped on his military footwear and walked 100 miles in support of our troops. This year, he’ll return to the pavement to do it all over again, this time with a little more experience under his belt.
“From the moment my boots hit the pavement on Ft. Hood last year to end the 100 mile walk, I had one persistent thought: I’ve got to do this again,” says Smith. “It was so emotionally and physically compelling that this sort of thing can’t be done only once. I’m so excited to lace up my boots again.”
