Born: 1770, New Bern County, North Carolina. Died: December 6, 1807, Sumner County, Tennessee. After a period of desperate depression, Granade came to Christ in 1800 at a Presbyterian camp meeting at Desha’s Creek, Sumner County, Tennessee. Ordained a Methodist circuit riding preacher, Granade was referred to by the Nashville Banner as the "wild man of Goose Creek" (Sumner County, Tennessee) and was also variously known as "the poet of the backwoods" and "the Wild Man of Holston." Granade worked in part in the world of shape-note singing in the Shenandoah Valley, where a variety of musical sources, both sacred and profane, were at play. His works include: Pilgrim’s Songster (Lexington, Kentucky: 1804) --www.hymntime.com/tc… Go to person page >
