His debut EP, Pain Pills or Pews, was released in October and reflects on his time spent in Grimes’ hometown of Dayton, Ohio, and how he felt he only had one choice there: become a pastor or become a junkie.
“I felt like those were sort of the options where I grew up,” he recently told Taste of Country. His father was a pastor, but Grimes chose music instead of following in his father’s footsteps.The music came first,” he said. “Growing up in church, I played drums in the worship band. I was always in bands, even when I was in New York or L.A. I was in.”
“It’s Been a Lifelong Dream”
Grimes is making a return to Stagecoach Festival this April in Indio, California, joining Jelly Roll, Miranda Lambert, Morgan Wallen, Willie Nelson, Charles Wesley Godwin, and Wyatt Flores, among many others. According to the source, “It’s been a lifelong dream.”

About his hometown, he told Taste of Country, “I left Ohio.” “Frankly, I thought maybe there was more there. I think [‘Oh, Ohio’]—I always compare it to the breakup song at your house, where it’s not necessarily happy. Not everything about leaving home is pleasant. It’s really harsh.”
He also talked about being on set with Ryan Bingham and Lainey Wilson and how they inspired him. While he said he didn’t get a chance to spend as much time with Wilson as he wanted, he added, “Ryan is a great guy. I love being around him. He has the best energy, the best spirit and if I could ask him to If I’ve learned anything musically, it’s from watching him do what he does.”
