Texas country singer-songwriter Curtis Grimes has released the latest single & video from his latest album ‘Undeniably Country’ – ‘Born To Die’, a diversion from his usual upbeat style and a strong reference to his personal faith.
In his own words: “Not only is ‘Born to Die’ important to me because of my relationship with Jesus Christ, but it’s a great way to share a message that I hope everyone gets to hear about at some point in their life. I was happy to be able to record it on my latest album and making it our current radio single was nothing short of icing on the cake. Shooting this video was a special experience, I got to spend the day with my family and our friends from church cherishing a moment in time while we put a visual to this priceless song. I hope you enjoy it!”
ABOUT CURTIS GRIMES:
To hear Curtis Grimes sing is to take a trip through the heart of country music. A Texas native, Grimes was raised on a steady diet of George Strait and Alan Jackson, and he possesses the everyman charm of both his heroes; along with a refreshingly mature voice that truly stands out. After a successful career as a collegiate baseball player in 2011 Grimes was given a chance to appear on a new reality TV show called The Voice airing on NBC. Having nothing to lose he auditioned for the show and ended up finishing in the top 10 under Coach CeeLo Green (no, not Blake Shelton).
Following success from the show, Grimes hit the ground running releasing new music and performing shows all across Texas and other states in the region. In 2014, Grimes and his hit single ‘Home To Me’ was picked up by US national salon chain Supercuts and placed in the mainstream spotlight. Not only was the song featured but Grimes got the chance to put on his acting boots and star in the national ad campaign. That same year Grimes started to see the hard work pay off when he was awarded ‘New Male Vocalist of the Year’ at The Annual Texas Regional Radio Award Show.
Fast forward to 2017, Grimes now has a handful of #1 songs under his belt and has played hundreds of shows across the US. His most recent album ‘Undeniably Country’ was released in November of 2016 and debuted at #16 on Billboard Heatseekers. Following yet another #1 radio single and a summer of touring and festival appearances, Curtis Grimes is preparing for an even bigger year in 2018, with national headline shows and huge dates with the likes of Aaron Watson already announced. With the brand new video for ‘Born To Die’ reaching nearly 100,000 views in the first few days of release, the track is shaping up to be another success story for this independent artist. Stay tuned…
