Yellowstone’s Luke Grimes, AKA Kayce Dutton, is continuing to write with some of the absolute best in all of Nashville.
This week, he had a co-write with the great Brent Cobb.
Brent is one of the most underrated artists in all of Nashville, and recently released a stellar southern gospel album And Now, Let’s Turn to Page… He’s also written for artists like Miranda Lambert, The Oak Ridge Boys, Kenny Chesney and Riley Green, just to name a few.
Brent reposted a photo from his publishing company on his Instagram stories, saying that they hit it off and Luke is a natural writer.
They even crushed a six pack together and have a new tune that we’ll hopefully get to hear sometime in the future:
“Wrote one in about as long as it takes to finish a six pack. Don’t take long if you know what you doin’…”
Luke announced a few months back that he had plans to really jump into country music, and he’s currently working with the management team of Midland, Hailey Whitters, and even his Yellowstone buddy Ryan Bingham.
Growing up as a pastor’s kid, he wasn’t allowed to listen to music from Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Johnny Cash, but these days, in addition to the legends of the past, he likes Colter Wall, Paul Cauthen, and Ruston Kelly:
“I hate this word, but the ‘secular’ music that I was allowed to listen to as a kid was Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash.
That’s the stuff my dad grew up on in the Appalachian Mountains. When he didn’t have to be a pastor, he was playing that sort of folk and country-rock.
We have a record player system in our house and Colter’s sitting right there next to it.”
Just a few weeks back, Luke sat down to write with some other fantastic co-writers in Jessi Alexander and Ben Hayslip.
In addition to her solo music, Jessi has written songs for Reba, Blake Shelton, Riley Green, Morgan Wallen, and more, while Ben has had cuts by Justin Moore, Morgan Wallen, Cody Johnson, Riley Green and more.
It remains to be seen what exactly Luke has up his sleeve, but from what I’ve seen so far, it seems like it’s gonna be GOOD.
