Grant Grieves, the youngest of two children was born in Kansas City, Missouri on May 20, 1938 to
Lester and Louise Grieves. Grants love for music began at the age of 10, when
two cousins Chuck & Jack taught him the chords on the guitar, thus preparing Grant for the musical road ahead.
Grant began writing in the 1950's and it's while living in Houston, Texas, Grant penned his
first song, "I've Been Waiting". Grant had many musical influences during this time, which
included Ernest Tubb, Lefty Frizzel, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Hank Snow. In 1959,
Grant recorded his first song, "Honky Tonk Women" on KCM records.
On the flip side was
"The Guns" which was an answer to Johnny Cash's hit, "Don't Take Your Guns To Town."
This record was later followed up by "Four In The Floor", "Married Woman", "Shake It
Baby", "If I Ever Stopped Laughin I'd Cry", "Honky Tonk Fever" and "Drinkin' and Drivin'.
Grant has toured the country performing shows with many well known artists such as Ferlon
Husky, Big Daddy Glen Daniels, Gordon Terry, Stonewall Jackson, Kenny Price, Tommy Cash,
Jerry Clower, Kent Westberry, Roy Drusky, Henson Cargill, Leon Ashley and Margie
