GRANGER SMITH'S BOOT WALK 2017
***SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS NOW CLOSED***

Country music artist and proud patriot Granger Smith is lacing up his combat boots once again for his fifth annual Boot Walk.

This year's format will be different, however. In years past, Granger has taken the 100-mile trek from Austin, TX to Fort Hood that culminated in a benefit concert with proceeds going to the national 501c3 non-profit, Boot Campaign. For 2017, Granger is calling for families and friends of fallen soldiers to submit their stories to be shared through a documentary series. Five candidates will be chosen to be featured and Granger will walk 20-miles in solitude to honor of each of them (totaling 100 miles); telling their personal story along the way. **The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, December 28.**

"There are heroes among us today," says Granger. "When a hero falls, their legacy must live on. Their story must be told and retold. Their sacrifices have sewn the fabric of our freedom, and I'm setting out across the desert for 100 miles in their boots to honor the life they lived. When we lose someone to war, our worst fear is that their story will be lost with them. With every step of this Boot Walk, I will make sure that doesn't happen."

Since 2011, Granger has logged 400 miles as a tribute to those serving our country in the U.S. Armed Forces through The Boot Walk. Earlier this year, Granger embarked on a patriotic "Pledge of Allegiance" tour which took him to all 13 original colonies plus Washington, D.C. in just two days where he urged fans to join him in reciting our country's pledge in front of national landmarks. He reminds us everyday to support our troops and show our appreciation for preserving our freedom. He has performed overseas numerous times and continues to do all he can to keep our military men and women on the forefront of our hearts and minds.
