Luke Grimes Teases New Country Album Amid Work on ‘Yellowstone’
With Luke Grimes officially on Instagram, fans of his acting and music careers alike will better be able to keep up with his consistently busy schedule. And with the 2023 Stagecoach Festival on the horizon, Luke Grimes has even bigger news, preparing to release a brand new country music album in the near future. The Yellowstone star briefly spoke about his passion for music, and a little about the new album, in a recent interview with Country Living.
Per his account, Luke Grimes first got into music when he was just nine years old.
“Church music was the first music in my life,” he told the outlet. “My dad was a pastor, and I was at church three days a week. I was the church drummer starting at age 9.”
He continued, “From there, my dad listened to Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard—all of those old-school outlaw country guys…It’s what got me into country music.”
Fast-forward a few decades and music has followed his career in the acting world.
“If I have an acting gig,” the Yellowstone star continued, “I always have a guitar. And not just because I’m working on the album. It’s always been a little buddy that I can take around anywhere.”
Unfortunately, while Grimes mentioned the upcoming album in passing, he didn’t provide a single detail regarding a title, a tracklist, or even an estimated release date. In the meantime, fans can look forward to seeing Luke Grimes again when Yellowstone premieres its fifth season later this fall.
