Luke Grimes pays homage to his home state in the single ‘Oh Ohio’


Luke Grimes has released the new single “Oh Ohio,” the follow-up to his debut country song “No Horse To Ride,” which has already amassed over 15 million global streams since its release in December. “Oh Ohio” was written by Grimes, Jessi Alexander and Jon Randall, and produced by Grammy Award-winning producer and songwriter Dave Cobb.

In the song, Grimes (who grew up in Dayton, Ohio) writes about the experience of leaving home. Said Grimes: “I left Ohio over twenty years ago to chase a dream. It was a big moment for me when I realize that Ohio wasn’t my home anymore; I’m sure many people who have moved away can relate. It felt like home for a very long time but over the years I could feel the drift. ‘Oh, Ohio’ is less of a song about leaving home and more about losing it. It’s a breakup song but with a place. Knowing your time together is over but you are a part of each other forever.”

Grimes’ debut track, “No Horse To Ride,” debuted inside the Top 10 of the Country Songs sales chart at No. 7. He is also known for his role as Kayce Dutton on the hit television series, Yellowstone.
