Livin' on the Run is the second album by actor/singer/songwriter Scott Grimes. Released in early 2005, it went on to produce two hit singles for Grimes in the Billboard Top Forty AC charts including one top twenty hit in: "Sunset Blvd". The song remained in the Top 20 for 10 weeks without climbing higher than #18.

History[edit]

After 16 years between albums, [his first release was the 1989 A&M album Scott Grimes], Grimes released this collection of material. Most of the songs were written years prior to the album's release. Grimes' career as an actor kept him busy with little time to pursue his first love of music. The album was recorded with L.A.-area studio musicians and would go on to become even more successful than his debut record.
