Gallagher was also announced last week as one of three new additions to the CMT Artist Discovery program. The multi-platform promotion includes exclusive world video premieres on CMT Music and CMT.com with custom on-air and cross-platform promotion to better connect emerging artists with a passionate new fan-base.
Producer/songwriter/musician and multi GRAMMY Award-winning engineer Chad Carlson produced “How Bout You” and is currently working on Gallagher’s debut album. Josh wrote the single with Will Duvall and Mark Addison Chandler, the new track is currently available at ITunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon Music.
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.
Gallagher will performing “How Bout You” and other cuts from his upcoming debut album at Martin’s BBQ Joint, 410 4th Avenue South in Nashville, on Friday, February 23, 2018 at 8 p.m. Central. The event is free and open to the public.
