Universal Music Group Nashville has joined forces with Universal Music Canada to sign country artist Josh Ross. The Waterdown, Ontario native is already an established hitmaker in his home country with back-to-back top 5 singles at Canadian country radio.
Ross was recently named one of Spotify’s Hot Country Artists To Watch and kicked off the year by releasing of his track “Trouble,” which was featured in an episode of the television series Welcome To Flatch, airing on both Fox and Hulu.
He celebrated “Trouble” debut by joining Bailey Zimmerman for three sold-out shows Jan. 5 – 7. Ross will continue to hit the road in the coming months, joining Lee Brice and Tenille Arts on the “Beer Drinking Opportunity Tour” in April as well as Brantley Gilbert and Nickelback on the “2023 Get Rollin’ Tour,” starting this summer. He is managed by The Core Entertainment and booked by The Neal Agency.
“Josh is such a gifted songwriter with so much depth,” shares Cindy Mabe, President, UMG Nashville. “He’s made Nashville his home so he could hone his songwriting skills and has elevated his art and his fan base in a short period of time. Josh found country music through Steve Earle, and songwriting has followed him throughout his life. We are honored to get to work with Josh Ross, The Core and Universal Music Canada to take Josh’s music around the world.”
“For a long time, we’ve wanted to partner with Cindy and the world class team at UMG Nashville – but it needed to be with the right artist. That artist is Josh Ross—one of the most promising voices in country music today,” says Jeffrey Remedios, Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Canada. “Josh is at once a phenomenal songwriter and magnetic performer who captures the hearts of fans with every song and every performance.”
