For your mid-week hump day delight, here’s a hot music video from Steve Grand, “All-American Boy”. If you’ve ever had unrequited feelings for a straight man, especially a strapping all-American dude, then this song and video is for you. The video, which was released early July, has reached nearly 1.8 million hits on YouTube and features Steve pining for his all-American guy friend. While the guy friend is pretty hot, Steve is very gorgeous as well, with his puppy-dog eyes contrasting with his muscular physique that he shows off at around 3 minutes into the video.
While he is not the first openly gay country music singer in a genre that is quite conservative, Steve Grand has certainly made a big splash despite being unsigned to any major record label since this song is his debut single and is unabashedly a gay song at that. The song’s title is even a nice counterpoint to the numerous all-American girl country songs such as “American Girl”, which was the blind audition song of the second runner-up Swon Brothers in The Voice USA Season 4, as well as “All-American Girl” which was sung in the finale of the same show by Danielle Bradbery, the eventual winner. (If you’re curious, I was rooting for Michelle Chamuel.)
