Grady’s performance seemed to showcase not only his fun music but also his fun personality. With his mother cheering him on from the front railing (she is in one of the photos in the gallery), he kicked up his bare heels and kicked up the energy to eleven for the duration of his performance. In his collaboration with lovelytheband, he sings “maybe I’m not like the guys that you pick most of the time but I know that I make you smile.” I co-sign that 100%…”
