Bachelorette: Brother of Country Star Granger Smith On Clares Season – Screen Rant

Posted: July 21, 2020 at 12:20 pm

The brother of country music star Granger Smith, Tyler Smith, is one of the 42 men who were flown out to Palm Springs to film The Bachelorette.

There is a great deal of mystery which men will be on Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette, in large part because an abundance of dudes were shipped out to Palm Springs in case there is a coronavirus outbreak and multiple men test positive. Most of the men are relative unknowns, but there is one potential suitor who is related to a famous country music singer.

The Bachelor has leaned into country music, especially as of late, recognizing there is an overlap in the two fan bases. The winner of Hannah Brown's season, Jed Wyatt, was a country music singer, though not a good one. Many of the guest artists that have been welcomed on the show in past seasons have been country singers. During Peter Weber's season, Chase Rice - who recently held a concert in a pandemic - performed during a one-on-one with Victoria Fuller. It caused a stir since Chase and Victoria had been romantically involved in the past. Later in the season, Hunter Hayes serenaded Peter and Victoria with his appropriately named song "I Want Crazy." Soon after, Peter learned that Victoria was, indeed, a bit too crazy for him.

This upcoming season, it seems country music should at least be a part of the storyline. That is, as long as Tyler Smith doesn't test COVID-positive. Tyler, 36, is the younger brother of 40-year-old country star Granger Smith. Granger has hit tracks like "Backroad Song" and "Happens Like That," one of which he might perform on the show in front of Tyler and Clare. According to Tyler's Twitter bio, he is his brother's manager.

Tyler could be a perfect fit for Clare. For one, he isn't way younger than her like a large portion of the field. Also, he is tied to someone famous. Generally, that tends to work in the favor of men on the show. Jordan Rodgers, brother of NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, won JoJo Fletcher's heart on her season. Josh Murray, who was a professional athlete, was chosen at the end of Andi Dorfman's season...before she realized he's not a good person. Musicians too have a way of wooing women. Hannah fell into Jed's trance, selecting him despite clear signs he wasn't being honest with her. Even as far back as Wes Hayden on Jillian Harris' season, musical talent has rarely hurt the male contestant.

Now, we don't know how musically inclined Tyler himself is. But it can't hurt having country music in his blood. Let's just hope that if Clare does choose him, he doesn't turn out to be a bad guy.
