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.



I live in Canada and I love big dogs, music, movies, reading and sports – especially baseball


    • 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.

      • 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.

  • 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…

    • 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.


Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
