Echoing the primary themes of country in his pop-rock-infused way, Josh Ross’s take on love, work, and play is often documented through his whirlwind experiences. From moving to Nashville on the night of a tornado, leaving only a month later when a global pandemic arrived, to developing an ever-evolving career amidst the drawbacks of injuries, lockdowns, and conflicting relationships, Josh Ross is a country artist bound by the act of forging past and overcoming restraints.
Ross debuted as an artist with his independently released Platinum-certified and Top 5 chart-topping cathartic ballad on romantic losses, "First Taste Of Gone,” and has since pushed even further in his career with his signing to Universal Music Canada, partnering with Universal Music Group Nashville, and management by The Core Entertainment. Often writing from personal experiences, Josh Ross has delivered versatile lyrics throughout his collection of songs with over 80 million global streams. His bustling catalogue includes “Tall Boys,” his Top 5 Canadian radio hit and Gold-certified “On A Different Night,” the introspective and Gold-certified track “Trouble,” and the latest too-close-to-home emotional track “Red Flags.”
Pushing through the top of 2023 with no plans to slow down, Josh Ross was announced as one of Spotify’s Hot Country Artists To Watch 2023 and is set to make his Grand Ole Opry debut in July. Carving out his place in Country music on both sides of the border, fans can catch him as tour support across North America for Lee Brice, Chase Rice, Nickelback and Brantley Gilbert. Stay tuned for much more from Josh Ross as he continues anchoring himself as one of this generation’s most promising Country artists.
Carroll rose to fame after being discovered at a local talent competition in 2004 and later signed to the Arista Nashville label in 2006, releasing his debut album Waitin’ In The Country. The album produced three Top 40 hits including “Alyssa Lies,” “Livin’ Our Love Song,” and “I Can Sleep When I’m Dead” and soared to number one on the US Country charts, selling nearly half a million copies. Both of Carroll’s following albums, Growing Up Is Getting Old and Numbers have charted on the Billboard Top 200.
He has opened for Brooks & Dunn, Trace Adkins, and Alan Jackson, and was a featured part of Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride’s 2008 tour. He was also performed on Good Morning America, thrilled the crowds at the CMA Music Festival, and has graced the Grand Ole Opry stage on multiple occasions.
Jason Michael Carroll is a consummate songwriter and continues to write and release new material. Carroll remains humble and optimistic about the future, stating, “I don’t take for granted what I’m doing, and I thank God and my fans every day I have the chance to keep doing it.”
