Grant Maloy Smith is a singer/songwriter of Americana music, a blend of folk, traditional country, and bluegrass. He has been writing music for more than 20 years, and has recorded five albums, including YELLOW TRAILER, AMERICAN MERMAN, BIG BOWL OF COURAGE, ALREADY AUGUST, and MR SPARKLEPANTS. He has been on the Grammy ballot 15 times since 2010, and is an active member of NARAS (The Grammys®), and advocates for the rights of musicians to be compensated fairly for airplay and music streaming.

Grant hails originally from Jacksonville, Florida. After writing several albums of rock ballads, he returned to his roots in 2013 with the break-through album YELLOW TRAILER. "My Grammy was from Kentucky, and she loved this uniquely American music. The sweet blend of acoustic guitar, bass, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer... this is what she instilled in me at a very young age. It was only a matter of time before I returned to these roots," according to the artist.
