In his own words: “I’m very excited to announce that I will be doing my very first UK Tour this June. This is something we have been working towards and it’s going to feel good to play some country music overseas. Looking forward to seeing you there!”
The full list of tour dates is:
June 23rd – The Woodside Hotel, Aberdour (Fife)
June 24th – Buckle & Boots Festival, Stockport (nr Manchester)

Grimes rose to fame on the first season of The Voice US where he made it to mentor Cee-Lo Green’s final 10. He’s had over 14 million streams of his original songs and opened for acts such as Aaron Watson.
In 2016 Grimes picked up critical acclaim for his album Undeniably Country. The album includes fan-favourite From Where I’m Standing, which was written by Thomas Rhett, Chris Janson, and Jaron Boyer.
The album also included Right About Now co-written by Grimes with his producer Trent Willmon (Little Big Town). The track has had almost 1 mllion plays on Spotify, making it one of the top five most streamed Texas/Red Dirt singles on the platform.
