Singer-songwriter Steve Grand says he's “overwhelmed” by the response to his first video for the track All-American Boy.

The video, released earlier this month, went viral on YouTube and has gained national attention.

All-American Boy tells a well-worn story of unrequited love, except the pairing in this video are two men. Grand's character falls hard for another young man. Despite sharing a kiss in a lake, the other man says he's just looking for friendship. (Watch the video in our video library.)

“Guys I am so overwhelmed right now I don’t even know what to say,” Grand said in a Facebook post. “Reading your comments and messages about how this song/video has brought back memories or tugged at something inside of you has moved me deeply. I'm doing my best to respond to as many as I can. Forgive me if I am late or miss over something since I am going at this alone. Keep sharing the video if you are inspired. Lets let our story be known by the whole world! And keep hashtagging #allamericanboy !!! :) I cannot thank you enough for supporting me. … I've dreamed about this all of my life.”
