Our spotlight shines on Curtis Grimes this week. “Baby Don’t Cry” jumped from #102 to #68 on the Texas Regional Radio Report, adding 120+ spins and being credited with the “Highest Debut”! Written by Grimes and Dan Couch (Something ‘Bout a Truck, Hey Pretty Girl) Grimes told us “There are not many feelings worse than having someone you love being upset and crying in front of you. Many times you feel like you’d move the world to make them not feel sad. Parents get this feeling with their children; a person gets this feeling about their significant other. I picked “Baby Don’t Cry” as my new single because I felt like it was perfect timing for it. My sister just recently had a beautiful little girl. I’m such a proud uncle that I felt that this song connected with the feeling I get about my niece. Although, this song was written about a relationship with a girl, songs can take on different meanings when you apply it to your current life situation. I’m very proud of this song and hope it connects with people like it’s connected to me.”
The song stood out to Texas Music Pickers due to the powerful lyrics and the great music. Through lines like “I know it’s been one of those run you down, kick you around, kind of days, you’ve been putting on, shutting up, holding back girl but your dam is about to break” Grimes digs into the listener’s empathy and tells a story we can all relate to. Through his traditional vocals and excellent production (Trent Willmon) Grimes offers his audience a great song!
The single comes on the heels of previous #1 “Our Side of the Fence” and we think it’ll follow it in its footsteps to the top! Help us push this one up the charts by requesting it on your online and local radio stations!
