Uplifting Story: Steve Grand – Gay Country Music Star?

Tj sent me this post by Ed Kennedy which he wrote for The Backlot a few days ago. When I heard steve grandSteve Grand’s  song, All American Boy I thought you would enjoy it too. Here’s Ed’s article:

“Steve Grand is out to be a country music star, and an out one at that. He’s got the whole package – great voice, musically talented, incredibly hot, and fearless, as you can see in his video for “All American Boy” which he created out of pocket, as he doesn’t have a label yet. He’s ready to be upfront and honest from the start of his career, ““time to be brave. the world does not see change until it sees honesty. I am taking a risk here in many ways, but really there is no choice but to be brave. To not tell this story is to let my soul die. It is all I believe in. It is all I hold dear. We have all longed for someone we can never have… we all have felt that ache for our #allamericanboy.”

The video is a story of a gay boy and a straight boy with their wires crossed, along with straight boy’s girlfriend, who sees what’s happening. Honestly, if I hadn’t gotten over a crush, this could be my life right now.”

Doesn’t this sound like an M/M Gay for You romance? Except in this story the gay boy doesn’t get the straight boy. 🙁 😮

Here’s what Steve says on his Facebook page:

” I gave everything for this. If my story makes even a couple people feel less alone in their aching, all the blood, sweat, tears, and soul I put into this project makes it worth it. Thanks for watching.”

Here’s the video. I can’t get this song out of my head. If you want to help Steve continue with his music here’s a link to buy his song. You can pay as much as you want.

Hi Michelle

I think Steve appreciates every dollar. I saw a piece on him on Good Morning America today where he said he maxed out his credit cards to make this video which has now gone viral.

I’ve been obsessed with this song since I first heard it four days ago. Steve’s voice is amazing. I love that growly thing he has going on. And the best part is, he seems to be surprised and humbled by all the positive attention he’s getting. I can’t wait to hear more from him.

I’ve been listening to his song all the time too! 😀

Maybe you should send him a message of encouragement on his Facebook page. I really hope he makes it because he’s so talented.

Buda

Oh I have. And I left him a message when I purchased the song, too. 🙂

Surely someone will see his talent and sign him. Fingers crossed.

Steve Grand appeared at the Joynt in Chicago on Saturday (I believe he mentioned that he was going to be there on his Facebook page earlier) and here’s a link of his performance there. Apparently his earlier video has now gone viral. 🙂

I haven’t heard of him. Thanks so much for featuring him in a post. I’m always looking for new music, so I’ll give him a try.

Thanks for buying his record. 😎 He’s so much more talented than a lot of artists on the airwaves today.

Thanks LelaLena. I’ll add the link to the post.

How great! I’m hoping that the writers of the TV show NASHVILLE know about Steve, since they’ve introduced a very appealing gay-but-semi-closeted aspiring country singer character and I can’t tell which way they’re going to go with his storyline…

Wave

It would be wonderful if he could get to do his song on the show. I’m not sure how open country audiences are to gay singers but this kid has a great voice.
