Granger Smith, the Texas born-and-bred singer/songwriter, has been busy reinventing the face of traditional country one chart-topping single at a time. By consistently providing blended hits that are well outside the realm of "typical," Granger's music provides a refreshing and unique variation on the growing independent country music scene.Though he's been in the music business since he was a teenager, Granger doesn't always play by the rules, which he finds gratifying. "When I knew I wanted to be a singer-songwriter for a living, I never set out to be totally grassroots," he explains. "Probably no one does. At that time, there was a system and most people followed that system. Write a song, book a studio and musicians, play a showcase, get a record deal, get famous, request all green M&Ms."For Granger, a mixed bag has proven more his style. "I've taken a unique path, which has been partly unplanned, but very rewarding," he adds.Over a decade into his career, the former Texas A&M alumn has already checked several items off his bucket list. Played by invitation at the White House? Check. Paid his respects to American soldiers? Absolutely, both through multiple tours in Iraq and Kuwait and through his annual 100-mile soldier walk. This year, he was asked to partner with The Boot Campaign to further raise awareness of our troops' needs as they return home from combat. The 'Sleeping on the Interstate' hitmaker means what he sings, because he works on his own time and in his own way. He has created his own in-home studio and with every album uses his own players -- his band members -- who have essentially become his brothers when on the road. "Every album, every song, every drum beat that you've heard from me over the last 6 years has come from my home studio out of these little speakers and was edited by me until I've felt it was right to release," Granger says, ensuring that his music is authentic and from the heart.From his first Top 10 single, 'Colorblind,' through the release of his most recent studio album, 'Poets & Prisoners,' and a relentless tour schedule, he essentially never sleeps. His blood is always pumping, his mind plotting the next calculated move.And that next move appears to be not so far away. Granger is currently working on another studio album to be released during the 1st quarter of 2013 following it's lead off "rollin' feel good" single, "We Do It In A Field." It goes without saying that creating music is Granger Smith's passion. Count them up; this release will be his 9th album since he hit the scene at age 19.His game plan has been good to him so far. Granger has had 8 Top 10 singles on the Texas Music Charts and he's even successfully launched a crowd-pleasing alter-ego, "country boy" Earl Dibbles Jr. The idea was born when Granger and his brother were having some fun with a camera on their childhood ranch. "Earl represents at least half of my family, so it was easy to jump in my old truck, grab my shotgun and slip right into character," Granger admits. They could never have imagined the viral success Dibbles has become, with his own single "The Country Boy Song," music video and legions of fans.It's clear that Granger is both serious and playful when it comes to his craft; he's humble enough not to take himself too seriously, but dedicated enough not to let his name slip out of mind. "Whether it was good or bad, that reality means the world to me," says of following his own path. "My team and I, we rise and fall together, but that rise feels so inspiring when we know we've created this momentum from the ground up. Everyday I'm thankful, everyday I'm excited. The world will always need new music and luckily, I can never get new music out of my head!"

The SoCal alt-metal foursome Alien Ant Farm formed in 1996 with the raging singer/songwriter Dryden Mitchell, guitarist Terry Corso, bassist Tye Zamora, and drummer Mike Cosgrove. All were bored with their day jobs and sought something else to break them from corporate norms. Music allowed them to freely express themselves, and a friendship was born. They independently released their quirky debut, Greatest Hits, toward the end of the '90s and soon enough noise surrounded the band. It won the award for Best Independent Album at the 1999 L.A. Music Awards and Alien Ant Farm found themselves striking a deal with Papa Roach's New Noize, which is partners with DreamWorks. Two years later they made their major-label introduction with ANThology, issued in March 2001. Debut single "Smooth Criminal" was a funky metal mix of Michael Jackson's original song, and pop kids of the TRL generation loved it. The song hit number one on the modern rock charts, and the album eventually went platinum. A year later, between tours of Europe, the band was back in the studio recording new music. Their new song "Bug Bites" was featured in the Tobey Maguire flick Spiderman in May 2002. But while traveling in Spain to a gig in Portugal that same month, the band's bus collided with a truck, killing their driver, Christopher Holland. The band and crew members suffered various injuries as well, most seriously Mitchell, who fractured his C2 vertebra. Thankfully, he came out of surgery able to walk, though suffered some nerve damage and a slight loss of motion. Committed to getting back to work and pushing the incident aside, Alien Ant Farm hit the studio to record their follow-up record. truANT was issued in May 2003, right as Dreamworks was dissolving as a label. As a result, the album barely made a splash on the U.S. charts, though the single "These Days" managed to crack the Top 30. Guitarist Corso subsequently exited the group and was replaced by Joe Hill. Zamora next left for college after recording of the band's fourth effort wrapped. Up in the Attic appeared in July 2006 on New Door Records, as hardcore vet Alex Barreto (Chain of Strength, Inside Out) entered on bass. Alien Ant Farm simultaneously released the DVD BUSted, which included music videos, live footage, and a candid documentary. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
Your fashion is one way you can present your personality and style to other people you meet at your place of work and other places you go. Choose your clothing carefully, and build a versatile wardrobe that can go from a day at work to a night on the town.
Wear cropped pants in a more flattering way by choosing capris, pedal pushers, and bermuda shorts that do not fall at the widest part of your calf. Choose pants that end above the knee or closer to the ankle. You should also avoid flared styles to keep your look streamlined.
Do not use sponges to apply your liquid and cream based foundations and blushes. You will lose product in the sponge every time you do. Additionally, the sponge becomes a breeding ground for germs. Instead, use clean fingertips for application, switching fingers or cleaning them between different products or colors.
Use a leave-in conditioner if you have trouble with frizz. You want to apply this product following a shower, before the hair dries. Don't be afraid to put a large amount all over your head, and make sure to target both the roots and the very tips of the hair.
One way to make sure that you look great is to find a specific cut or brand that fits you well and buy multiples of it. This is important because you will not always find that perfect outfit, especially if you are shopping at the last minute. Buy more than one of the same color even, just in case it gets damaged somehow.
Complement your style with a wonderful smile. If you walk around looking sad, then it will not matter what you are wearing. A truly fashionable person knows the importance of sporting a beautiful set of pearly whites. You should smile whenever you can. It will make you feel better and keep you looking fashionable.
Crocheted clothing is back in style once again. The most popular pieces this season happen to be crocheted vests. These comfy vests come in a multitude of colors, patterns, and thicknesses to add a cozy and homemade look to any outfit. Try wearing them over your plain shirts or dresses.
Are you in the market for a new pair of jeans? There are a variety of styles and colors to choose from. Sometimes it may seem like it is too much and overwhelms you. Consider only buying jean styles that are classic and lasting in style. These kinds of styles always look great on most people and give you a lot of wear for your money.
If you have "problem" hair, you may be washing it too much. It's not always a good idea to wash your hair daily. When you do this, you strip natural oils and end up with a chemical buildup on your hair. If you must wash your hair daily, use gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner and don't scrub your hair. Just stroke the product through it and let it rinse out gently under warm, running water. Allow your hair to air dry rather than blow-drying.
Where do you want eyes to fall? Your use of solid colors will dictate where people look first. Pants and skirts that are solid can allow you to wear more flamboyant tops that get you some attention. If you wear lighter tops with darker pants, it will cause others to look more at your face than other parts of your body.
You can tell your friend about the latest that you learned about fashion so that they know you are really trying to help out their image. It's a good thing to assist a friend with their fashion so that they are looking as good as possible when they go out with you.
Enjoy the fur trend without spending a lot of money. Fur is huge in the world of fashion right now, but genuine fur can be very expensive. Faux fur is a great way to get in on the trend without breaking the bank. It also has the added benefit of being humane.
Wear colors that are appropriate for the season. Light and pastel colors are characteristic of the softness of spring. Bright colors of the rainbow tell us that summer is here. Wear browns, golds and reds for the richness of autumn. Wear greens, reds and white to welcome in the holiday winter season.
One fashion tip to consider is to have at least one item that is leopard print. While this may seem odd, this design has been popular throughout the ages and could be just the thing to add some spice to your outfit. Sometimes just a belt or purse could do the trick.
Do not forget about your hair and makeup when it comes to fashion. It is very easy to get used to a hair style or a manner of applying makeup but if you do not change with the times it can make you look older than you are, which you surely do not want.
Braiding long hair is very popular right now. This not only keeps long hair under control, but there are many fun ways this can boost your appearance. You can experiment with different types of braids like French braids and Dutch braids or dress up some simple braids with stylish hairpins, bows, and flowers.
Don't be distracted by name brands. You can get stylish frocks from off brands and outlet stores. The most important aspect is quality. You want to know your outfits will last longer than a fortnight. However, don't buy an outfit just because it is low in price either. Get something that fits you.
Clothing costs a lot and fashions change very often. You should concentrate on purchasing a few basic items of good quality so you can change your look just by adding various other items of clothing. The information you have learned in this article will help you in creating a wardrobe that is easy to change.
