Generating hype as ''the first openly gay male country star'' has been as much of a surprise to Steve Grand as anyone

Two months ago Grand, who is hoping to have an album out by spring, released a second song, ”Stay,” which has garnered over 500,000 views on YouTube. ”In the story, I’ve got the guy, so it has a happy ending like everyone wants,” Grand jokes. (An interesting tidbit: The guy in the video is JR.’s bartender Jayson Smith.)

How about in real life, has he got the guy? Grand declines to reveal his relationship status: ”That’s pretty much the one thing I don’t talk about.”

Steve Grand performs Saturday, Nov. 9, at 10:30 p.m. downstairs and after midnight upstairs, at Town Danceboutique, 2009 8th NW. Cover is $8 before 11 p.m., or $12 after. Call 202-234-TOWN or visit towndc.com.
