Yellowstone Star Luke Grimes Encourages Listeners To “Hold On” In New Song

Luke Grimes is giving fans another sneak peek of what they can expect in his upcoming album by releasing his newest single, titled “Hold On.”

Luke Grimes’ vocals take center stage in the newly released song, which came out today, April 21, through Mercury Nashville / Range Music. Produced by Dave Cobb, the track features Grimes singing an acoustic melody with his soulful country twang.

The song’s lyrics, written by Foy Vance and Ilsey Juber, showcase Grimes’ concern towards the possible downsides of being in a relationship. His main concern is getting too emotionally invested in someone and becoming scared of the commitment. Grimes cautions his significant other that he is quick to exit the scene, before things get too serious, to avoid heartbreak.

“Wish that I could not go crazy / Wish that I could make you hate me / Maybe I should change my name and run / So I don’t have to hold on / Maybe you and I would make it / It ain’t the kind of risk I’m taking / Maybe I should change my name and run, run, run / So I don’t have to hold on,”  Grimes sings during the songs chorus.

Luke Grimes has gained popularity for portraying the character of Kayce Dutton in the widely acclaimed TV show Yellowstone, but actually began his musical journey at a very young age by playing instruments like drums, guitar, and piano in church alongside his father. Although acting was his first big break, it was time to start his country music career. He signed with his record label late last year and announced in mid-February that he will have new music coming out.

The release of “Hold On” comes only a few days before Grimes is set to perform his Stagecoach Festival debut. The up and coming country singer will take the stage Sunday, April 30. Also included on the Stagecoach lineup are headliners Luke Bryan, Kane Brown, and Chris Stapleton, plus big names in the country scene such as Jon Pardi, Riley Green, Brooks & Dunn, Parker McCollum, Old Dominion, Gabby Barrett, and more.
