Out of Los Angeles, California, Andrew Charles Grammer already had big shoes to fill as of December 3, 1983, as the son of recording artist, Robert Crane Grammer. Although born in L.A., he grew up in Chester, New York. While in school, he learned how to play the trumpet, then the guitar, and the piano. By the time he was fifteen years old, he was already writing songs and at the age of twenty, he returned to Los Angeles where he graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in music industry studies from the California State University. It seemed for Andy Grammer, filling Red Grammer’s shoes wasn’t a problem.

Andy Grammer’s Own Shoes

Andy Grammer began as a busker on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade before he was discovered by who is now his manager, Ben Singer in July 2009. He later signed with S-Curve Records in April 2010 and has since released a total of four studio albums, five extended plays (EPs), twenty-two singles, and two promotional singles. He also co-wrote the single, Bones, along with the Swedish electronic music group, Galantis. This 2019 single was performed by OneRepublic, an American pop-rock band that helped turn it into a gold-certified hit among the nations of Brazil, Canada, and Italy. It also peaked as high as number seventeen on the US Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and was a number one hit on Belgium’s Ultratip Flanders chart. Although Grammer didn’t perform this song, his writing credit still earned him recognition for it.

We hope you enjoy this Andy Grammer songs list. If your a fan of artists like Charlie Puth, John Legend, Ed Sheeran or even Maroon 5, we think you will love Andy Grammer.

Top 10 Andy Grammer Songs

#10 – Crazy Beautiful

In 2013, “Crazy Beautiful” was released as a single, as well as Andy Grammer’s fourth EP. Although this single is not known to be charted on any official music charts, it has over eight million views on the YouTube channel. The simplicity of the single as Andy Grammer playfully sings out all the qualities of his love interest, served as a portrayal of the artist’s easy-going lyrical nature each time he performs a song.

Throughout most of Andy Grammer’s songs, whether it’s a charted hit or not, continues to display his glass-half-full viewpoint on life instead of the glass half empty. It has proven to be one of the endearing qualities as a singer-songwriter who seems to enjoy entertaining the audience every bit as much as they enjoy listening to his music.

 

#9 – Good Example (featuring R3hab)

Dutch DJ, R3hab, along with Andy Grammer, recorded and released the single, “Good Example,” on Spotify in 2020 and has also earned itself over one million views on its official music video channel on YouTube. With a hint of Middle Eastern flair into the single, this electro-fused motivational single has served as an inspirational piece for listeners to become the best part of themselves in a world that doesn’t always make this feat so easy.

 

#8 – I Found You (featuring Cash Cash)

In 2020, “I Found You” was the final single released from Andy Grammer’s fourth studio album, Naive. An inspired Cash Cash, after listening to Grammer’s music on Spotify, reimagined Grammer’s rock version of I Found You into something featuring a more upbeat vibe. As an upbeat collaboration piece, I Found You became a certified gold hit with the Australia Recording Industry Association (ARIA), despite neither version of this song becoming a chart hit. Grammer’s original, however, earned over twenty-six million streams on the Spotify website and has earned a loyal fan following due to the appeal of the song and Grammer’s vocals.

#4 – Don’t Give Up on Me

In 2019, “Don’t Give Up on Me” was the lead single from Andy Grammer’s fourth studio album, Naive. This served as the theme song to the romantic drama, Five Feet Apart, which featured a young couple having to contend with illness, death, and love. This powerful, uplifting ballad was inspired to not give up, no matter how hopeless a situation happens to be. On the Canadian Hot 100 chart, “Don’t Give Up On Me,” peaked at number one and was a number twelve hit on the US Billboard Adult Top 40.

In Australia, the collaborated version with the Dutch DJ, R3hab, saw “Don’t Give Up On Me,” climb as high as number forty-nine, as well as become double-platinum with the Australia Recording Industry Association (ARIA).

#3 – Keep Your Head Up (featuring Melissa Nkonda)

The debut single for Andy Grammer was a duet he performed with Melissa Nkonda, which debuted as an exclusive VEVO music video on November 11, 2010. “Keep Your Head Up” came from his self-titled debut album as the first of its three hit singles. It was also the most successful as it became an RIAA platinum-certified seller, as well as with Australia’s ARIA. In 2011, Keep Your Head Up peaked as high as number five on the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and a number twenty-one hit on the US Billboard Mainstream Top 40. It charted as number fifty-three on the US Billboard Hot 100 and won MTV’s O Music Awards’ Most Innovative Video for 2011.

In Australia, Keep Your Head Up has become the theme song featured in its drama series, Tricky Business. It was also featured in the 2012 American teen musical comedy, Pitch Perfect. Also, on Disney Channel’s So Random! sketch comedy series, Grammer has performed Keep Your Head Up for its viewers since its 2011 debut.

 

#2 – Fresh Eyes

In 2016, “Fresh Eyes” was the lead single from his third studio album, The Good Parts. The inspiration behind Fresh Eyes focused on the desire to raise awareness and funds for the homeless. This song, in particular, was designed as a charity single that had all of its proceeds go to the Union Rescue Mission, a private Christian homeless shelter located in Skid Row, which is in the downtown area of Los Angeles, California. In the music video, as Grammer’s heartfelt lyrical plea played, the makeover of the residents of the Union Rescue Mission was filmed one after the other.

The single was a commercial success, selling over one million copies in the US, therefore making it a certified- platinum hit. It also became a five-time platinum seller with Australia’s ARIA after selling 350,000 copies in that nation. In Canada, Fresh Eyes sold 80,000 copies that certified it platinum, and with Recorded Music New Zealand, after selling 30,000 copies, it also became certified platinum.

 

#1 – Honey, I’m Good

On the US Billboard Adult Top 40 chart, the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, and the Canada Adult Contemporary chart, “Honey, I’m Good” was a number one hit in 2014. It also peaked at number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100 and was a top forty hit among the nations of the Czech Republic, Mexico, Scotland, and South Africa. It also became a five-time platinum seller with Music Canada and a triple-platinum seller with USA’s RIAA.

Platinum was also earned with Australia’s ARIA and Honey, I’m Good also earned silver with the UK’s BPI. For Grammer, the inspiration behind this song’s tale of monogamy was about being honest to a relationship that’s worth keeping rather than risk losing it all to someone, even if the physical attraction is there. Honey, I’m Good served as an inspiration for a number of artists to cover the song. The versatility of this single also had Andy Grammer re-recorded the single with the country group, Eli Young Band as guest vocalists. This version of the song became number thirty-seven hit on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart as a digital release in 2015.

“Honey, I’m Good,” was the second of three singles that were released from Andy Grammer’s second studio album, Magazines or Novels. This has since become his signature song due to its chart and commercial success.
