Steve Holy was born February 23, 1972 in Dallas, Texas as the youngest of eight children. He entered a local competition called the Mesquite Opry at age nineteen. While there, he caught the attention of Wilbur Rimes, the father of country singer LeAnn Rimes. By 1999, Holy was signed to Curb Records.

 

His first single for the label, "Don't Make Me Beg", peaked at #29 on the Billboard country charts in 2000. By February of that year, Holy's debut album, Blue Moon, was released. Its second and third singles, which were the title track and "The Hunger", respectively, both reached #24 on the country charts. The fourth single, "Good Morning Beautiful", became his biggest hit, spending five weeks at Number One on the country charts, and reaching #29 on the Billboard Hot 100. This song was also featured in the soundtrack to the film Angel Eyes.

 

After "Good Morning Beautiful", Holy released his fifth single, "I'm Not Breakin'", in late 2002. This was followed by four more singles over the next two years: "Rock-a-Bye Heart", "Put Your Best Dress On", "Go Home", and "It's My Time (Waste It If I Want To)". Although all of these charted, they were never included on any albums.

 

Finally, in 2005, Holy released a song entitled "Brand New Girlfriend". This song became his second Number One on the country charts, reaching the top of the charts in its thirty-sixth week, and setting a record for the slowest climb to Number One on that chart since the inception of Nielsen SoundScan in 1990. (This record was broken one year later by Tracy Lawrence, whose "Find out Who Your Friends Are" reached Number One in its forty-first chart week.) "Brand New Girlfriend" was the lead-off single to Holy's second studio album, also entitled Brand New Girlfriend. This album also produced the minor Top 40 country hits "Come on Rain" and "Men Buy the Drinks (Girls Call the Shots)".
