The Coast To Coast Closeup is presented by The Eagle River Casino and Travel Plaza in Whitecourt.  

Curtis Grambo will be the first to tell you he learned to sing country music from the “Legends of County”. Growing up in Crystal Springs, Saskatchewan, the Grambo home was no different than most prairie homes, in that music was a big part of their life. Curtis grew up listening to the likes of Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Charlie Pride and many styles of gospel music.

At the age of five, Curtis began signing in church, and by the age of twelve, he had developed a substantial array of vocal talents. Curtis vividly remembers August 16th, 1977 as a day that changed his life forever. He arrived home to find his mother crying and he knew something was really wrong. When he asked her the reason she was crying, she stated, “Elvis Presley died.” Curtis couldn’t let this go. He thought that if his mom was such a huge fan, this guy had to be something special, and was amazed at how one man’s music could have such an influence on so many people. Curtis was hooked!
