The special was taped in Sweden with the Swedish King and Queen among the attendants. The following year, he performed as a guest vocalist on the Time album recorded by Richard Carpenter of The Carpenters. Afterwards, Carpenter thanked the then-15-year-old Grimes for his "spirited" performance.

In 2005, he released his second album, titled Livin' on the Run, and in 2010, he issued his third, called Drive.

Then, he appeared regularly in the teen-drama series Party of Five, portraying the character of Will McCorkle. Next, Grimes appeared on the NBC prime-time show ER, in which he portrayed Dr. Archie Morris, a role he started in 2003 as a recurring characterand portrayed until the series' end in 2009; by that time, his role was upgraded to a series regular. His film credits include the dark-comedy Who's Your Monkey and Ridley Scott's Robin Hood. Grimes later appeared on Family Guy, voicing a recurring character named Kevin Swanson.
