Justin Grant – Real Country Music “Interview”
The legions of country music fans wondering where real country has gone, need to look no further than Justin Grant.
Justin has spent the last 10 years traveling and playing in many different venues making a name for himself until his long time friend John Christie contacted him in 2008 wanting to know if Justin would be interested in recording an album and of course, he was.
Justin became friends with John Christie in 2006. John has been in Artist management for years helping along the carriers of such acts as Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Kathy Mattea, Sons Of The Desert, Darryl Dodd, Craig Morgan and many more. With John’s help Justin began his first professional record in 2008. Justin wrote many of the songs on this project, during this process paired up with Jarrod Johnson and wrote a song that was put on hold for a George Strait project. He also became friends with Shelee Morris, Shelee makes an appearance with her amazing harmonies on the title track to the album “All The Way To Abilene.” In December 2008 Justin completed his project having funded it completely from working in the oil and gas fields. Justin soon released his first single to radio.
“Drink More Beer” hit the Texas airwaves in 2009 and climbed as high as #60 on the Texas Regional Radio Report, made it to the top 30 on several countdowns and charts overseas and went to #4 in the International Independent Music Country Chart. Also in 2009 Justin released his second single “That’s All She Wrote” to radio. This up tempo ballad written by Justin sums up the road he has been on and the sacrifices that come with it. “That’s All She Wrote” received rave reviews from radio for Justin’s vocals and ear for producing a professional sound.
Later in 2009 Justin released his third single, “Last Time It Rained” and in March of 2010 the power ballad hit the Texas Music Chart at #50 becoming Justin’s first top 50 hit.
