    • Grant Peeples is a 7th Generation Floridian from Sopchoppy, Florida. He started his music career upon moving back to America after living on a small island off the coast of Nicaragua for eleven years. He is a self-described ‘LeftNeck’ and “liberal with a gun,” whose life’s focus is writing ‘finger-in-your-eye’ songs and then searching for quiet corners in which to play them for people who are still able to pay attention for four minutes or so. His current record, “PawnShop,” which he claims to be an allegory of our Times, spent a little time in the hither regions of the obscure Americana Music Chart.
“Sunshine State,” Grant’s 2007 entry into the Florida State Song Contest…….lost.
