Born and raised in Lee County, North Carolina – an area where brick manufacturing, cotton and tobacco reign supreme – Josh Phillips captures the nostalgia of small town life, showcasing “unapologetically honest” (Whiskey Riff) lyrics throughout his music. Josh penned all five songs on LEE COUNTY EP (THE ACOUSTIC SESSIONS), which offers a preview of his gritty, boisterous sound and Carolina drawl. Josh began introducing his music to Country music fans in his Tar Heel State playing local clubs before ultimately rolling the dice and moving to Music City a few years ago and signing with Big Machine Records. Since, he has traveled coast to coast, performing alongside some of the genre’s top acts including Sam Hunt, Cole Swindell, Chris Janson and Tyler Farr. Following his sold-out fall 2017 run on Luke Combs’ DON’T TEMPT ME WITH A GOOD TIME TOUR, Josh joins Brantley Gilbert’s THE ONES THAT LIKE ME TOUR this year while also working on his full-length debut album.
