Steve Grand All-American Boy Video

Meet the Openly Gay Country Singer Everyone's Talking About

Last week, country musician Steve Grand posted the music video for his original song "All-American Boy," and the video has since gone viral. He's being called the first open gay country singer, and on his Bandcamp page, Grand reveals that he doesn't have a manager or a label, so he funded the project with tip money from playing piano at a Chicago piano bar and at church.The song tells the story of one guy falling for another, and the video follows Grand as he gets turned down by a boy who catches his eye.

When he posted the video, Grand wrote on Facebook: "Time to be brave. The world does not see change until it sees honesty. I am taking a risk here in many ways, but really there is no choice but to be brave. To not tell this story is to let my soul die. It is all I believe in. It is all I hold dear. We have all longed for someone we can never have . . . we all have felt that ache for our #allamericanboy. If my story makes even a couple people feel less alone in their aching, all the blood, sweat, tears, and soul I put into this project makes it worth it."

In the past, Canadian country and pop artist k.d. lang made headlines when she came out in 1992, and country star Chely Wright came out in 2010. See how more film, TV, and music stars have come out through the years.
