Luke Grimes returns to 'Hold On' for a duet with Foy Vance.
Grimes persuaded Vance to join her in a duet version of the song when their planned composing session went through.
Luke Grimes has returned to the song "Hold On," which he debuted earlier this year, to release a new version with its co-writer, Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance.
The track's odd backstory acknowledges Grimes' admiration for Vance as an influence on his art.
Following the cancellation of a planned songwriting session between the two, Vance offered "Hold On," which he penned with Ilsey Juber, to the Mercury Nashville/Range Music artist and his team.
Grimes then recorded it with producer Dave Cobb for his upcoming album, after which he called Vance to ask if he would be willing to participate in a duet version, which he did remotely.
This virtual teamwork resulted in the current release.
"'Hold On' has quickly become one of my favorite songs from the [upcoming] album," Grimes explains.
"Foy Vance is one of my favorite current songwriters, and even though we couldn't meet in person, I knew he had to be a part of this album."
