‘Yellowstone’ Star Luke Grimes Says Church Music Was The First Music in His Life 

While recently speaking to Country Living, Yellowstone star Luke Grimes opened up about how he first got into music and which music artists inspired him throughout the years. 

“Church music was the first music in my life,” Luke Grimes explained. “My dad was a pastor, and I was at church three days a week. I was the church drummer starting at age 9.”

Luke Grimes then stated that his father would listen to various country artists. “My dad listened to Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard – all of those old-school outlaw country guys. We would always play that on boys’ trips. It’s what got me into country music.”

While recalling when he first picked up the guitar, Luke Grimes said that playing drums in his New York City home became nearly impossible. “Your neighbors would kill you,” he explained. “So I got a guitar and started teaching myself chords. It’s been a part of my life ever since. It’s been a part of my life ever since.”

Luke Grimes went on to share that if he has an acting gig, he always has a guitar nearby. “And not just because I’m working on an album. It’s always been a little buddy that I can take around anywhere. It’s somewhere to put some of that energy when you’re in a new place and don’t know what else to do.” 

Meanwhile, Luke Grimes opened up about his other adventures. In regards to doing a two-month adventure in his 2013 Airstream during the COVID-19 pandemic, Grimes revealed that he and his wife Bianca decided to go to various national parks. That’s when they discovered their new home – Montana. “I told my wife, ‘If you see a place you like, we can think about moving there. As soon as we parked in Montana, she said, ‘This place, obviously.’”
