Mercury Nashville/Range Music’s Luke Grimes has announced the October 20 release of an eight-song EP, to be titled Pain Pills Or Pews. Grimes wrote six of the songs on the project, which is produced by Dave Cobb.
This Friday (22) will see the release of the next track from the project, the Grimes original “Burn.” The EP will also include his version of Foy Vance’s “Hold On,” which Grimes has released in both his solo version and as a recent duet with Vance. Also among the eight tracks are the December 2022 debut release by the Yellowstone star, “No Horse To Ride,” and its March 2023 follow-up “Oh Ohio.”
Also just released is a new video of an acoustic performance of “No Horse To Ride,” available exclusively on the Western AF YouTube channel. The song was in the No.1 position and on the cover of Spotify’s Country Hits 2023 playlist, and has been included on eight Spotify Viral charts.
Grimes will follow the EP’s release by hitting the road for a number of shows. He’ll be performing for the first time at the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin, TN next Sunday (24) and will also return to the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, CA in April of next year.
