Luke Grimes is probably best known for his high-profile roles in Fifty Shades Of Grey and Yellowstone. Following his much-loved performances as Yellowstone's conflicted rancher and veteran, Kayce Dutton, he's ventured into country music.
After being signed to UMG Nashville, Luke Grimes has released a smattering of singles, all of which will be included on the Ohio native's hotly anticipated debut album. The self-titled project is set to arrive on March 8th 2024, with Grimes accompanying the announcement with a sparse, stripped-back new song, ‘God And A Girl’.
The upcoming record will include his first single, the sparse, rustic love-song, ‘No Horse To Ride’, which Grimes released towards the end of 2022, as well as ‘Oh Ohio’, ‘Playin’ On The Tracks’, ‘Ain't Dead Yet’, ‘Ghost Of Who We Were’ and ‘Burn’. In addition, the singer-songwriter's much-loved Foy Vance cover, ‘Hold On’, will feature.
Each clearly maps out Luke Grimes’ sonic blueprint, which draws inspiration from the purposefully under-produced and stripped-back feel of Yellowstone favourites, Zach Bryan and Colter Wall.
Having said this, each of the singles has included slightly distinct lyrical flourishes and the occasional melodic surprise, with Luke Grimes having tested out a handful of possible avenues before solidifying his sound for the upcoming album.
The rollout of Luke Grimes’ new record will undoubtedly receive a welcome boost from his loyal Yellowstone fanbase, with the second half of Season 5 due to air in November 2024.
Grimes’ debut single, ‘No Horse To Ride’, appeared as part of Episode 8 in the latest season of the blockbuster series, and it would be highly surprising if this is the last time his music features in the show's trailblazing and hugely popular soundtrack.
