That does not imply that at the time of the single's release, the Yellowstone actor was unfamiliar with music. As a matter of fact, music has always been a part of his life. 

He didn't put a lot of effort into it, though, until last year. Grimes discussed his hometown and how working with Ryan Bingham on the set influenced his music in a recent interview.

Grimes made an appearance on Taste of Country Nights' most recent episode. He spoke a wide range of subjects with host Evan Paul when he was there, such as his hometown.

Paul questioned Grimes about his "mixed feelings" toward his hometown in reference to the song "Oh, Ohio." Yes, Grimes answered. "I departed from Ohio. I obviously believed there might be more out there.
