Nashville based, Australian born artist Grayson has made quite a name for himself in the U.S.A. During his time in Nashville, he has become a highly regarded writer, performer and session musicians. He’s released four studio albums in the past, and has worked with some of the best musicians that Nashville has to offer, including the Grammy-nominated songwriter Jan Buckingham, who has written for Tim McGraw and Whitney Houston.

In 2013, Grayson‘s documentary ’66 Days on Route 66′ created quite the splash, winning the Gold Award at the 2013 Cinerokom Film Festival in LA. The gorgeous film offered a look at Grayson’s journey of self discovery as he traverses the American landscape, contemplating his identity.

Adding to his already impressive resume, Grayson has just dropped his latest single ‘Margarita’. He took us behind the track to offer us some insight into how it came to be.

“Living in America has opened my eyes to the epicness of Taco Tuesday.  It’s usually an excuse to drink in excess of my body weight in Margaritas and eat too many tacos.  I had a writing session at Capitol Records on a Friday and I was still hung over from the Tuesday!  I told Jeff Wood (my co-writer) about how big a night it was and we decided to write a song about just leaving it all behind and finding a place in the sand to have a ‘Margarita’ or 10.”

“Before we penned anything, we went and had a few Margaritas with an early lunch and then smashed out the song within an hour.  Straight away we knew we had something special.  The track was always going to be a fun one to write and make!”
