Indiana resident and rising artist Josh Goodlett says he learned his top-notch work ethic through years of being raised on a farm in Taylorsville, Ky. He recalls driving a tractor by age 3. Citing his stepfather, a former marine, as an influence, Goodlett says, “I’ve never been a stranger to hard work.”

These days, Goodlett is pouring as much passion and hard work into his burgeoning music career. He played over 100 shows in Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee in the past year, and is working on an upcoming studio project. He’s also father to four sons and one daughter, ages 8-14.

During a recent visit with MusicRow staffers, Goodlett performed a brief acoustic set. He launched the performance with “I Don’t Usually Do This,” which will be on his upcoming album. He also offered an acoustic cover of Conway Twitty’s “Goodbye Time.”

Goodlett closed his brief set with his current single “Why Ya Gotta Be That Way.”

The radio add date for the single is May 4, the same day that Goodlett will embark on a radio tour, bringing his music to programmers across the country.

Goodlett recently released the song’s accompanying music video, which was produced and directed by Bobby E. Boyd. The two-day video shoot took place at Chase’s Dance Hall in Hendersonville, Boyd Where Prohibited Studios in Nashville, as well as the Music City Star train station and Two Rivers Park, both in Donelson.

“That was my first time doing a music video,” recalls Goodlett. “It was a 16-hour day, but I think I got the hang of it by the end,” he quipped.
