After the breakout success of his first studio album, 2019’s Love and Whiskey, a lot has changed for Average Joes Entertainment star Sam Grow. That milestone project followed years of grinding work, writing his own tunes, booking his own shows, and recording his own EPs … but it was all rewarded.


Love and Whiskey hit Number One on iTunes’ Country Albums chart – doing so with zero radio airplay – and since then he’s only poured more gas on the fire. Grow’s 2020 single “Song About You” burned red hot, pulling in more than 50 million streams, and getting named one of Spotify’s “Best Country Songs” in the process. Grow’s been featured on Billboard’s coveted “7 Country Acts To Watch” list, and touted by Music Row as a sure-bet for future superstardom, among other accolades, as the temperature continues to spike.


But with his new sophomore album, This Town, Grow goes back to where it all started. Painting a sonic picture of the small-town world he was raised in – rocked by changing times but still holding strong – he’s building on success … and letting fans know they’re never alone.


“I feel like right now I’m making some of the best music I’ve ever made,” he says – and honestly, that’s saying a lot, since the Maryland native is the definition of a “prolific creator.” Since his 2014 arrival in Nashville, he’s dropped three EPs and his milestone debut album, never letting more than a few years pass between releases. But things are different now.


“2020 was a big revelation to me, of how important music is to people’s lives – even in the worst times,” he says. “To be able to put on a song and not feel alone, even when the world seems like it’s crashing around you, that’s such an intimate thing.”


Calling his new music the “most-personal” of his career, Grow takes that realization and runs with it for This Town, embracing his journey as proof of what’s possible. Emboldened by success but still inspired by his roots, he was joined by producers Colt Ford and Noah Gordon for 12 fresh tunes, choosing soulful honesty over mainstream conformity. That go-your-own-way, DIY mindset has always been part of Grow’s blue-collar ethos, but This Town takes it to new levels.


Of the album’s 12 songs, Grow wrote or co-wrote all but one. Three of them were even written solo, as Ford and Gordon pushed him to trust his creative instincts. And then, they went to work perfecting his sound, pumping up his muscular country tone with a sleek new gloss, dripping in county-line soul.

It’s an insight the Arkansas native has long taken to heart. In his case, heroes and influences stretch from Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley, through Alanis Morissette and Oasis, to Miranda Lambert and Jason Isbell. But through the endless one-nighters, opening slots, and writers’ rooms that constitute paying dues, he learned what true artists always learn—that the best tribute is not imitation but transformation—finding the place inside that connects with those influences and turns them into a unique and honest voice. He has learned that lesson well.


“The music I make now is mine because I believe it and it’s true,” he says. “That’s what I can contribute, and that’s how I see myself fitting in. The currency of the realm is authenticity, and I think there’s room for mine.”


That’s something he proved with back-to-back #1s that put him in the forefront of this era’s artist-songwriters, and he proves it again with One Of Us, an EP that establishes him as an artist of real depth and vision.


The breakthrough came with the 2X PLATINUM “Prayed For You,” the only debut single to top the Billboard Country Airplay chart in 2019. The PLATINUM follow-up, “Everywhere But On,” made him one of just a handful of new artists to hit the top twice in a row in six years. In the process, he racked up more than half a BILLION total global streams across his catalog while surpassing 27 million views alone for the official music video for “Prayed For You.”


He quickly became one of his generation’s busiest and most visible artists, appearing on Good Morning America, The Kelly Clarkson Show, Bachelor in Paradise, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #LateShowMeMusic digital series. Along the way, he performed the national anthem for major NFL and NASCAR events, plus debuted at the Grand Ole Opry with about 150 friends and family members in attendance from his hometown.


One Of Us, the six-song collection that is the latest step in his musical journey, shows Stell at his creative best, with songs that bring alive a landscape of small-town dreams, friendship, love, and heartbreak. The title track is an anthem for those who share and celebrate the day-to-day realities of small-town life. “Man Made” honors the strength and inspiration provided by the woman behind even the most accomplished man, and “Somewhere Over The Radio” deals with the siren call of leaving to pursue dreams bigger than a hometown, “about how hard that decision is, and the people you leave behind but really take with you wherever you go.”


“Shut The Truck Up,” “This One’s Gonna Hurt,” and “Roots In This Ground” round out a project equally divided between songs Stell wrote and songs he chose from talented peers in the songwriting community.


“When you move to town as a songwriter,” he explains, “you’re at the mercy of artists listening to outside songs and giving them a shot. I told myself that when my role changed from songwriter-artist to artist-writer, I would always listen. The song is king, regardless of whose name is at the top of the lyric sheet, and the ones I end up wanting to cut are the songs that jar me from the beginning. Both writing and choosing songs, this project is me getting better at finding my voice as an artist. I think I know what I do and who I am now more than I ever have.”


Stell’s musical journey began in Center Ridge, Arkansas, where his family has lived for generations. While absorbing the work ethic and positive attitude he saw as cornerstones of that life, he was also absorbing the Country music he heard on both sides of the family.
