Nashville, Tennessee — Fans of Josh Gallagher need wait no longer for the popular singer/songwriter to hit the country airwaves, as his debut single “How Bout You” was released this week. Written by Gallagher with Will Duvall & Mark Addison Chandler, the new track is currently available at iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon Music.
“’How Bout You’ is all about a breakup that everyone has gone through,” said Gallagher. “It’s that face, that front you put on during a breakup where you have to act like you’re perfectly fine but on the inside you’re losing your mind over it.”
Producer/songwriter/musician and multi-GRAMMY Award-winning engineer Chad Carlson produced “How Bout You” and is currently working on Gallagher’s debut album.
A native of Cresson, Pennsylvania – pop. 1,600 – about 80 miles east of Pittsburgh, Gallagher moved to Nashville in 2014. He gained national notoriety on season 11 of “The Voice,” being coached by both Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. A fan favorite every week, Gallagher won the hearts of millions and built a fan base across the world with his impressive vocals.
Country music legend, Garth Brooks, is included in those fascinated by the vocals and talent of Gallagher. Brooks advised Gallagher on the set of “The Voice.” “This kid, as soon as he opens his mouth – you believe him,” said Brooks, as he insisted, “If I’m a manager, if I’m a producer, if I’m a record label – that’s the guy I want because he has the career in front of him. This whole world is going to be listening to you for a long time. You’ve got it.”
No grass grew under Gallagher’s feet after the show, as he hit the road and racked up over 200 shows in the last year.
