Josh Abbott has had one of the fastest rises to the A-list in Texas music history. Since the beginning of his meteoric rise, Josh has been somewhat of a polarizing force for fans and musicians alike. However you feel, Josh is firmly fixated at the top of the Texas music pecking order, and has no plans of ceding that position. This week on The Co-Write, Josh sits down with the boys to discuss everything from where his musical journey began, to what launched his rise and how he continually tests the limits of his music both sonically and lyrically. Josh's latest release, "Until My Voice Goes Out", debuted at #1 on the iTunes music chart, establishing him as a growing force nationally, and one of Texas' biggest acts.
