Steve Grand's viral video hit "All-American Boy" has done what many thought would be near impossible: make a country star out of openly gay singer-songwriter.
Grand's video has already racked up over 850,000 views on YouTube as of this writing and with interviews on various internet outlets and "Good Morning America" it looks like the song -- and Grand -- won't be slowing down anytime soon.
While Grand might seem like the exception, country music can be pretty queer at times.
