​   “A poet of optimism and maturity” (Lonestar Music magazine), Grider has fully embraced his status as a musical Swiss Army Knife, expanding his reach deeper into collaboration — as evidenced by projects with longtime friend Drew Kennedy (Topo Chico Cowboys, Vol. 1 and 2) and his wife.  (Josh and Kristi Grider Live at Gruene Records).  His songwriting prowess is in high demand as he traverses Music Row writing rooms to return to the creative well and deliver “just what country music fans need right now” (Taste of Country).  Look no further than 2020’s “Country’s Comin’ Back” and “American Anthem” as proof.  No longer the new kid on the block, and not yet the grizzled veteran, Josh is just moving in time with the rhythm of a career that has come a great distance, and still has miles to go.

“We had one rule when we started recording this record: If we don’t have it, we can’t use it.” It’s a simple concept – the premise that makes up Drew Kennedy’s ninth studio album, Marathon – but the result is a vivid and immersive ode to a corner of the world that the singer-songwriter has fallen in love with over the years. Kennedy and his collaborator, Davis Naish, packed up a select set of instruments and headed to a small adobe house in the tiny Far West Texas town after which the album is named – as he mentions in the opening track, a town born of Buffalo Soldiers and Seminole Scouts and the third transcontinental railroad, with seven high school seniors; the entire town has less than 400 residents – where they spent a week recording his latest 11-song collection.
