““Josh can sing. He can play. And he absolutely knows how to take charge of a room and command a crowd. And he does it with electric musicality and personality. He’s a big guy with a big smile and big talent. Music’s in Josh’s soul and his love for it pours out of him every-time he throws a guitar strap around his shoulder and steps up to a mic.””

— Chad Benefield- Brand Manager/Morning Guy 92.5 WBKR-FM


“Of all the talented people I’ve had the pleasure of working with, Josh Merritt is a standout in my mind. He is naturally charismatic and strikes me as a born entertainer. He’s got the voice to go with it. But these things alone don’t make an artist’s career and Josh knows that. He also has the drive to get there and he knows who he wants to be.””

— Andy Brasher- Singer/Songwriter Owensboro, KY
