Colorado Musicians + Photographer Honor the ‘Growin’ Man’

A Western Colorado Songwriter, along with a popular local musician, worked together to create a song paying tribute to the American farmer and fruit grower. When this song came my way, I thought it might be interesting to pair the song with images from Grand Junction photographer Robert Grant and create a music video. Please enjoy “Growin’ Man.”

This tune was written by Grand Junction composer, arranger, and performer Gary R. Smith. Vocals on the tune were provided by Colorado’s very own Jeff Pine. The song was recorded at Gary R. Smith Productions in Grand Junction.

Upon hearing the tune, I went through a few thousand of my grandpa’s photos, combined with several others my dad found in storage, and put together this short video.

With Labor Day coming up this weekend, let’s take a moment to pay tribute to the men and women working the fields and orchards in Western Colorado. Thanks to their hard work, we all have food on the table. Here’s to you, the Growin’ Man, and Growin’ Woman.
