Rob Mayes Releases New Track ‘Grandpa’s Hands’


L.A.-based actor-singer-songwriter Rob Mayes has released his brand new track ‘Grandpa’s Hands’

The track follows the release of the ‘Closer’ EP in September and the recently released ‘Wine + Whiskey’. ‘Grandpa’s Hands’ was written by Mayes, produced by Smith Curry, mixed by Mark Lonsway and mastered by Andrew Mendelson.

Building on the momentum he’s gathered in the country music genre, Mayes continues to showcase his impressive versatility with Grandpa’s Hands. A raw, honest and emotional acoustic-led track, Grandpa’s Hands is a deeply personal homage to Mayes’ grandparents and a celebration of the impact they’ve had on his life.

Revealing the story behind the song, Mayes says:

“I wanted to write a very personal song about my grandparents. My grandmothers raised me while my folks were working. They taught me love and patience, and to do what makes you happy. My grandfathers taught me strength and loyalty and the beauty of honing one’s craft. My mom’s dad was a woodworker. My dad’s dad played guitar and banjo. They together taught me the importance of family. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of them. I’m so grateful I had as much time with them as I did. Not everyone can be that lucky. I thought it was fitting to release the song on my birthday weekend, without them, I wouldn’t even be here.”
