Cut from the Texas country cloth, yet rocking a style of his own design, River House artist Grant Gilbert has a history of self-made wins, streaming success, and big-name believers. With a fresh batch of music, proudly independent and made with Nashville’s top talent, a new chapter begins. Raised on a cattle ranch in tiny Santo, Texas, Gilbert was inspired by everything from his grandparents’ Texas swing and fiddle tunes to his dad’s penchant for Springsteen, Petty, and the country hits of the ‘80s. He dove head first into Lubbock, Texas, a town famous for its vibrant live-country scene, while a student at Texas Tech. He eventually made his way to Nashville where he spent time writing with hit songwriters like Brad Clawson, Jessie Jo Dillon, and Dan Isbell, and recording with producer/songwriter Jonathan Singleton. Tracks like “She Goes Home (Dirty Breakup Song),” “God & Everyone” and “What's Stopping Us” racked up nearly 2 million streams on Spotify alone, mixing that gritty Lubbock edge with a youthful passion for life and love. But with a new chapter unfolding, he’s just getting started. New tracks like the can-crushing “Six Pack State of Mind” (featuring Josh Abbott), “Turn It Down” (featuring Maddie & Tae), and “Take Me Out to the Bar” help to showcase the artist Gilbert’s become. For him, that has always meant being his own man and working to make his own place in the world. With big things on the horizon, he’s not going to stop now.
