A Michigan native who grew up listening to country and R&B music, Josh Gracin catapulted to fame after auditioning for the second season of the hit television series American Idol. Josh, who was serving in the United States Marine Corps at the time, quickly became a fan favorite and won the hearts of viewers with his strong fourth place finish on Idol Do my homework now.

Following his appearance on the series and the completion of his military service (he was honorably discharged in 2004), Josh released his self-titled debut album that summer. Three Top Five singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart later, the Recording Industry Association of America certified the album gold. “Gracin Nation” was wanting more, and Josh delivered in the form of his sophomore album, We Weren’t Crazy, which was released in 2008. Redemption, Josh’s third album, was released in 2011 and showcased his growth as a writer, artist and producer with the hit single “Long Way to Go” making its way up the adult contemporary charts.

It's hard to come up with a good word to describe The Lovedays' blend of folk, bluegrass, country, gospel, and Americana. Just call them Y'allternative! Scott plays guitar and banjo and Amy provides lead vocals and their seamless blend of tight harmonies are evidence of their 30+ years of singing together. You'll hear lots of new music and plenty of familiar tunes you'll want to sing along with. One instrument and two voices: what you see is what you hear!
