Steve Grand - Openly Gay Country Singer

The video for his single "All American Boy" follows a gay young man who falls for another guy, only to have it end in unrequited gay-straight attraction. Steve writes of his decision to make the video: “I fought with who I was for most of my life. In every way a young person can fight with himself. But starting today… I’m laying it out there. I’m done playing it safe. I don’t have a manager or a label or any sort of funding other than the tip money I make playing piano. I feel like music industry people wouldn’t like the idea of me “pigeonholing” myself by telling this story as I have. But I don’t believe the world sees change until it sees honesty. So I went in on my own. I went all in. There is no Plan B. I’m nervous/excited/horrified/anxious about the implications […] the choices I am making (and have made throughout my journey of discovering myself as a man and as an artist) will have on my future. But then I remind myself I never really had a choice. This is the story I’ve been aching to tell […] most of my life… it is what I hold dearest to me.”
