24-year old Steve Grand, a Chicago native, initially gained fame as a hot underwear model, modeling under the names of Steve Chatham and Finn Diesel. He appeared on the cover of hot Aussie beefcake magazine DNA, and several underwear sits.
Everything changed for Steve in July 2013 when his self-funded music video, “All-American Boy,” posted to YouTube. It went viral instantly, accumulating more than 1.5 million views in the first two weeks, and more than 3 million today. Within days, Steve landed on “Good Morning America,” CNN and other national media -- hailed as a “viral sensation” and one of America’s “first openly gay country stars.” Buzzfeed ranked the video on its list of the “24 Most Brilliant Music Videos from 2013,” and Out magazine named Grand to its annual “OUT 100” list of the year’s most compelling LGBT people.
The song, set against a backdrop of country roads, an American flag, and friends around a campfire, struck a chord because it simply, beautifully tells the story of unrequited love between two men. Recently Steve released his second single, Stay. Steve has produced a substantial catalog of compositions and recordings, some of which he plans to release in 2014 on his first full-length album.
