When ChicagoPride.com first featured Grand on July 4 he was relatively unknown, since the openly-gay country singer has appeared on Good Morning America, been featured by a number publications and now enjoys an entire online fan base known as #GrandFans.
To create the video, which was directed and edited by award-winning Chicago filmmaker Jason Knade, Grand enlisted his friends and put himself into $7,000 credit card debt. To date, "All-American Boy" has received over 1.5 million views.
Grand told ChicagoPride.com that the last two weeks have been overwhelming and that he has been touched by all the stories people have been sharing with him and how they have been impacted by the video.
