Curtis Grimes Plays Multiple Venues in East Texas This Summer
Gilmer native Curtis 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 and ended up finishing in the top 10.
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 national salon chain “Supercuts” and placed in the mainstream spotlight. 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 2016. Grimes now has a handful of number 1 songs under his belt and has played hundreds of shows across the U.S. His most recent album, Undeniably Country, was released in November 2016 and debuted at number 16 on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” song chart.
This year is shaping up to be a great year for Curtis Grimes — on the verge of yet another number 1 single. This summer fans can see him in his native East Texas at Banita Creek Hall in Nacogdoches August 12, Love & War in Texas in Lindale August 13, and at the Drunken Mule Saloon in Commerce August 26.
