Grant Terry - In My Head


If Ryan Tedder had been influenced by the muddy Mississippi river, he might come out sounding a little like Nashville based singer/songwriter Grant Terry.  Growing up in Northern Louisiana seems to have given Grant a soulful, earnest grounded sound that resonates through his writing and his vocals.  Moving to Nashville in 2010, Grant quickly garnered a modicum of success when his 2012 debut album, "All She Wrote" landed at number 3 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.  Letting his environment shape his sound, Music City USA has added another layer of honesty and deep rooted thoughtfulness to his voice.

Between his talent and a crack production team, it's crazy to think that he's just now breaking into the scene.  There were some really amazing choices made with this record.  It's got a flawless sensibility that makes it perfect for mainstream radio play but there's a vulnerability to his performance that keeps him accessible to his fans.  It's easy and it doesn't attempt any theatrics that will take away from what is already so good about it.  It's a song that is going to appeal to male and female fans alike; guys will marvel at the fact he's singing about places they've been in their head space and girls are going to appreciate knowing they've made that much of an impression on the guy she likes.  The song is built in such a way that you will be humming or singing it long after you've listened to it.  It would be easy to see him touring with other singer/songwriters or opening up for Jason Mraz, Colbie Calliet or even OneRepublic.
