POSTPONED Sam Grow
May 2 @ 9:00 pm
Music has been part of Sam Grow’s life ever since he took his first breath, so it comes as no surprise that 30 years later he is burning up the charts with his latest self-released EP, The Blame. Born in southern Maryland to a blue-collar powerline worker, Sam’s first taste of music was none other than the King of Rock n Roll, Elvis. “He had me when he was almost 40, so that’s the kind of music I grew up on – old school music,” Sam explains.
Sam released his debut self-titled EP in 2014, gaining him chart success when the project landed at No. 8 on the iTunes Country Albums chart. His follow-up and most recent compilation of music, The Blame, succeeded that charting position when it made its charting debut at No. 5 on iTunes. The Blame also gained charting attention at No. 8 on Billboard’s Current Country Albums chart and No. 2 on its Top New Artist Albums chart following first week’s sales of 3,383 units sold.
Judging by the way his career path has gone so far, looks like Sam Grow is doing more than just translating his music to his audiences. “Getting radio airplay and getting somebody new to come out to a show who’s never seen us before and know the lyrics to the song is a whole new humbling experience,” says Sam. “Especially because all my stuff I write is personal, real life. I love Luke Bryan, but I’m not going to write ‘Hunting, Fishing and Loving Every Day,’ because I don’t hunt and fish every day, so I can’t sing a song like that. But heartache, bar rooms and real-life stuff, that’s what I like to sing about because that’s what I live.
“Everybody has their ideas of ‘making it,’” he continues. “For me, I’ve already made it. All I ever wanted to do in my life was to play music, so I’m blessed and fortunate enough to get to do that.”
