Josh Ross wasn’t always bound for Nashville. He spent most of his life devoted to sports as a hockey player, avid Motocross competitor, and college football scholarship recipient. A member of Western University’s football team, Ross’ dream was to play in the CFL. After several injuries sidelining his career in football, Ross picked up his guitar and embarked on a journey exploring his lifelong love of Country music. Ross’ talent led him to join the Emerging Artist Showcase at Canada’s largest country music festival, Boots and Hearts, where he performed for over 10,000 country music fans, opening for Jake Owen, High Valley and Luke Bryan. After winning the hearts of many and encouragement from his newest supporters, he trekked to Music City to pursue his dreams of becoming a singer-songwriter. He spent his time crafting his songwriting skills and cultivating a sound of his own, reflective of his musical interests and influences. In the summer of 2021, Ross unveiled his track “Tall Boys,” – a summertime anthem that took off and has accumulated over 2.5M streams and counting. His follow-up, “First Taste of Gone,” showcases a different side of Ross both lyrically and vocally and continues to impress.
