Country singer Steve Grand with his new music video for his single "All-American Boy" is getting the the Internet buzz he always wanted, but this time everyone labeling the musician as the first openly gay country singer.
On July 2, Grand released the video on his Facebook page saying "after all these years...this is my song. my story. my dream."
Without a manager or record label or any sort, and no money to produce a record Steve Grand used the tip money he made playing piano downtown at The Joynt, and at the churches on Sunday morning... and produce this single all by himself, all alone.. "We'll see how long I'll be singing “Glory to God” should this video see the light of day."
"Anything you can give is a huge help to me." This is the story I've been aching to tell my most of my life.
Showing off his ripped physique Steve Grand tells us his story of falling in love for his hunky friend. After sharing a bottle of whiskey, spending some intimate time together, taking of his shirt and skinny dipping, it’s clear, Grand’s character has a bad case of puppy love. The clips shows Grand and the dude finally kissing in a lake but Grand’s all-American boy just wants to be friends.
"It's time to be brave... 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,” Steve wrote on his Facebook. “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 touched so many fans all across the internet leaving Grand speechless. "I am so overwhelmed right now I don’t even know what to say... reading your comments and messages about how this song/video has brought back memories or tugged at something inside of you has moved me deeply."
And he is doing his best to respond to as many fans as he can. "Forgive me if I am late or miss over something since I am going at this alone," he writes. "Keep sharing the video if you are inspired. Let's let our story be known by the whole world! I cannot thank you enough for supporting me... I’ve dreamed about this all of my life."
