I have to say, I’ve been pretty impressed with the singles Luke Grimes has put out so far.
We all know and love him as cowboy Kayce Dutton on the hit Paramount series Yellowstone, but he also has a country album in the works and has been writing with some absolutely brilliant songwriters, like Jessi Alexander, Jon Randall and Brent Cobb… and that’s just to name a few.
He’s also been working with the legendary Dave Cobb as his producer, so suffice all that to say, he’s putting all the right pieces together to have what should be a very impressive project when the time comes to release a record.
Luke signed a record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville last year and hit the studio to record in February, and he previously said they were looking to put an album out in the spring, so it really could be coming any day now.
And ever since he announced he was legitimately going to give the whole country music thing a shot, he’s always pointed towards the likes of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Colter Wall Jason Isbell and more as some of his biggest influences, and in the music he’s released thus far, that seems to add up.
And if you’ve been loving his music as much as I have so far, you’re in luck, because he just announced a new tune called “Hold On” will be out everywhere tomorrow.
He also shared a teaser on Instagram, and I have to say, his vocals sound great and I love the production on this one already:
“Hold On out tomorrow…”
Luke previously released “Oh Ohio” and “No Horse To Ride.”
With every release, I get more excited for his debut full-length project, mostly because it seems like Luke is really taking this endeavor seriously, and honestly, seems to really have what it takes to pull off going from an actor to a real deal country artist.
And that’s saying a lot, because that’s actually a really hard, if not almost impossible, thing to do, so color me very intrigued to hear more.
