Our spotlight shines on Gilmer, TX native Curtis Grimes this week! We proudly bring you the premiere of Grimes’ new music video for the current #1 song on the Texas Regional Radio Report: “Put My Money On That”! The song comes off the singer/songwriter’s most recent album, “Undeniably Country”, and sits at #7 on our Texas Music Spotify Chart with over 400K total streams!
It’s hard not fall in love with those twangy vocals, crying fiddle licks, traditional instrumentation, and toe-tapping rhythm. Grimes unapologetically dives in to his faith, musical roots, patriotism and more. Taking listeners throughout his ideaology and letting them know exactly what he’s willing to bet on in life, Grimes immediately sets the foundation of the song with opening lines:
An old haggard song takin me back to my roots
And them words In red, man thats the stone cold truth
And a quitting time cold one from a blue collar check
I’d put my money on that
Country music was intended for the expression of beliefs, introspective thoughts, and subjects of substance and to provide fans of the genre something to resonate with. That’s exactly what Grimes does here! Crank it up, hit play, and get your boots a tapping.
