Warner Chappell Music Signs Josh Ross
Warner Chappell Music has signed singer-songwriter Josh Ross to a global publishing deal.
Managed by Simon Tikhman and Chief Zaruk at The Core Entertainment, Ross signed with Universal Music Canada/UMG Nashville earlier this year. He was named one of Spotify’s Hot Country Artists To Watch for 2023 and has recently been on tour supporting industry heavyweights such as Bailey Zimmerman, Nickelback, Lee Brice, Chase Rice and Brantley Gilbert.
Ross’s songs regularly land in Billboard’s Canadian Hot 100 chart, and in 2022 his debut single, “First Taste Of Gone,” climbed to No. 5 on Billboard’s Canada Country chart. Later that year he followed up with another chart-topping single, “On A Different Night,” which reached No. 4 on the Canada Country chart. Also in 2022, Ross was a top three finalist in SiriusXM’s Top of the Country contest, and was nominated for Rising Star at the Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA).
He will make his Grand Ole Opry debut in July.
