Country is coming downtown this fall as K-Hawk welcomes Granger Smith to Cedar Rapids for the first time! Smith, whose hits include 'Backroad Song,' 'If the Boot Fits,' and 'Happens Like That,' headlines the show at the McGrath Amphitheatre Friday, September 27. *The show was moved inside, to the U.S. Cellular Center, due to the weather forecast for the night of the show.

Just seven weeks ago, Granger's 3-year-old son, River, tragically drowned at the family home. Earlier this week he talked about where he and his wife, Amber, are in the grieving process.

Finally, Tucker Beathard will return to K-Hawk Country to start the show. Beathard, the brother of former Iowa football quarterback C.J. Beathard, first played in the corridor when he performed at Kinnick Stadium for a show headlined by Blake Shelton in August of 2016.
