This song is one of (if not THE) most popular regularly played songs of all time. If you look at the By Year
charts, you'll see that it was played most in 1993 where it was one of the top 3 most played songs through every consecutive tour for that year. All this promotion was probably due to the fact that Granny was supposed to be the band's first 'single'. Matthews admitted that the band envisioned people walking the streets chanting "LOVE! BABY!", and for a while the crowd did chant at several shows during other songs in the setlist.
Although it was confirmed to be the only unreleased song recorded for Under The Table and Dreaming
(Steve Lillywhite, Oct. 1998), it never quite made it to any other studio albums and is now known for is steady occasional playing. The studio cut was issued on the 2014 20th anniversary release of Under the Table and Dreaming
