Luke Grimes announces self-titled debut album

The project will be available on March 8th

Mercury Nashville/Range Music recording artist Luke Grimes has announced that he will release his debut full-length album on March 8th. Produced by Dave Cobb, of the album’s 13 songs, ten were co-written by Grimes. The album follows the fall 2023 release of Grimes’ EP Pain Pills Or Pews, which has amassed 105 million global streams streams to date. Available now is one of the album’s new tracks, “God And A Girl.”

“I’ve spent the last couple of years trying my best to make something that I would be proud to put into the world. Now, all I can hope for is that it finds a few people to connect to and it makes them feel like they aren’t going through all of this alone. That’s what my favorite music has always done for me,” Grimes says.

Known for his role as Kayce Dutton on the hit TV drama Yellowstone, Grimes grew up in Ohio playing music in the church and listening to the Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings records his father played him. Later, he moved to LA and joined an Americana band as its drummer before relocating to Montana, where Yellowstone films. Now writing in Nashville with hit songwriters like Rodney Clawson, Nicolle Galyon, the Love Junkies, Aaron Raitiere, and Brent Cobb, Grimes is sharing his personal story — of the loss of his father and meeting his wife — with country fans.

In 2023 he played upwards of 20 festivals, including Stagecoach, Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival, and Under the Big Sky Festival, and headlined his own sold-out tour. Grimes will make a return to Stagecoach in April 2024 with his highly anticipated full-length album under his belt.
