Josh Ward Continues the Tally of #1 Hit Singles
off Latest Album

 West Coast tour with Cody Johnson Kicks off
August 2017


TN (June 5, 2017)-When taking a retrospective look at Josh Ward’s
precipitous rise into the very coveted Texas music scene, it seems like
his music is plugged into a perpetual power source that few newer
artists are able to harness.  His collective body of work spanning two
full length albums has functioned like an inexhaustible machine amassing
seven consecutive #1 hit singles on the Texas Regional Radio Chart. 
His latest album “Holding Me Together” picked up
perfectly where his previous album left off with all four singles
snagging the #1 spot, distinguishing him as a new generation heavy
weight champion of old school country music. With the release of his new
single “Change My Mind,” Ward continues his pace towards his next hit song, and also to new venue stages.  Adding
to his success at radio, his live show reputation has similarly turned
hordes of music fans in his direction, and his peers have taken notice. 
In August 2017, Ward will accompany fellow honky tonker Cody Johnson on
a West Coast tour, a perfect paring of authentic country music genius.

After a
few years of cutting his teeth on the touring circuit, Ward truly found
his stride in 2012 with the release of his first full length album “Promises,”
produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer, Greg Hunt.  It seemed clear
that radio had discovered their new banner artist in Ward with all five
singles hitting the Top 20 on the Texas Music charts, three of those
scoring #1’s-almost unheard of for a debut artist. Ward wrapped up 2013
as the Texas Regional Radio’s New Male Vocalist of the Year. When it
came time to get back in the studio for his next album, Ward knew just
where he was going…back to Rosewood Studios in Tyler, TX with the return
of Greg Hunt behind the sound board. Their work on Ward’s third full
length album “Holding Me Together” proved yet another triumphant collaboration.  All four singles went to #1 on the TRRR Chart starting with “Highway,” and continuing with TRRR’s Song of the Year, “Whiskey & Whitley,” then “Somewhere Between Right & Wrong,” and finally with “Broken Heart.”

tenacity and hard work Josh Ward has grown into one of the most
respected and appreciated musicians in the state.  A well versed
songsmith with a hauntingly traditional voice, his honest and visceral
delivery of every song compels audiences to feel his lyrics with him as
he takes them on his musical journey.  From start to finish his latest
album gives you the white-knuckle roller coaster ride Ward intended you
to have.  A thrill that translates meticulously to the stage with live
performances that not only mirror the studio versions, but as a whole,
has only one singular motive…to hold you hostage on the dance floor.
