Backsplash grout joint too big.

I'm trying to repair a 3/8" grout joint between the tiled kitchen backsplash and tiled counter top. It took only a year for this crack to occur, and I realize now I should have left only a small joint to caulk. Aside from removing and regrouting. What else can I do? Previous grout was modified and sanded.

Hi Mike, you can try getting some same color caulk as the grout and caulk it.
