Up-and-coming country artist Ryan Griffin started day two of CMA Fest 2017 at the Chevy Stage. He played several tracks to an enthusiastic crowd.
If you listen to Sirius XM’s The Highway, you’ve heard Griffin a time or two. He’s the voice behind “Back Seats and Burnt CDs” and “Woulda Left Me Too,” his newest single. If you haven’t heard those, you’ll know his songwriting skills. He’s one of the writers behind Kelsea Ballerini’s No 1. single, “Dibs.”
Griffin played CMA Fest’s Chevy Stage, a stage he’d never played before, after a brief introduction. New fans learned that he’s always dreamed of being a country singer and now he’s making his dreams come true. His impressive vocals and high-energy performance drew a crowd pretty quickly despite the early set time. Griffin performed several songs from his EP including “Young Love” and “Sake of the Summer.” He also played the super catchy “Back Seats and Burnt CDs and the heart-wrenching “Woulda Left Me Too.” The latter left the crowd speechless as he poured his heart and soul into the tune. All of those songs are on his EP, which dropped in March.
If you missed the 10:30AM Friday set, see what you missed in the videos below and be sure to check out Griffin’s EP, Sake of the Summer.
