Growing up on a farm outside Canton, MS, Grady was exposed to the sounds of church choirs and the music from his family.
His musical career began as a rapper and evolved into the blues star he is today.
Grady discussed how his musical career changed, the thrill of playing in front of 1 person or 10,000 people and playing with his son.
He also discussed his thoughts on the International Blues Challenge and the benefits it has afforded him.
You may be surprised at Grady's answer to my question "If you had not won the IBC, would your career be the same?"
