From the venue:
Country singer Sam Grow is just a small-town kid from Mechanicsville in Southern Maryland. But his dreams and his music have extended well beyond the boundaries of the Old Line state. After the breakout success of his first studio album, 2019's Love and Whiskey, a lot has changed. That project followed years of grinding work, writing his own tunes, booking his own shows and recording his own EPs "? but it was all rewarded.
Love and Whiskey hit Number One on iTunes' Country Albums chart and he quickly followed its success with his sophomore album This Town featuring the breakout smash single "Song About You"?. In November of 2022, Grow landed his 3rd studio album Manchester, whose title pays respect to his new hometown in Tennessee of the same name. Grow is now approaching rare air for artists in any genre - his music is on the cusp of collecting more than 100 Million global streams.
Named one of Billboard Magazine's coveted "7 Country Acts To Watch"? list, and touted by Music Row as a sure-bet for future superstardom, Grow is showing no signs of a slowdown. Making his Grand Ole Opry debut in November of 2021 was just another chapter of his impressive story that continues to be written every day.
During the pandemic, Grow was forced to adapt and shift quickly during a highly challenging time as were many artists and businesses. He was the first country artist to plan and execute an entirely private show concert series and backyard acoustic tour - at a time when music venues across the country were forced to be closed. In other words, Grow learned to zig while the world zagged. Racking up over 140,000 miles on his personal truck and playing private â€˜Backyards & Bonfires' acoustic shows starting in April 2020 Grow literally covered America. Playing in states like California, Nevada and Washington back to the East Coast in areas like Massachusetts, New York and New Hampshire. There are very few states in between US coasts he didn't hit at least once.
For Grow, in the end, it remains squarely about the music. "I feel like right now I'm making some of the best music I've ever made,"? he says - and honestly, that's saying a lot, since the Maryland native is the definition of a "prolific creator."? Since his 2014 arrival in Nashville, he's dropped three EPs and three full length albums, never letting more than a year pass between releases.
"2020 was a big revelation to me, of how important music is to people's lives - even in the worst times,"? he says. "To be able to put on a song and not feel alone, even when the world seems like it's crashing around you, that's such an intimate thing."?
