After the show, Wade put Josh in touch with his management team. That introduction led to Josh meeting and eventually signing with AMP Entertainment, a new publishing/artist management venture launched by industry veteran, Tim Dubois (hit songwriter, founder Arista Nashville, responsible for signing Brooks and Dunn, Alan Jackson, Lee Roy Parnell, Brad Paisley, Diamond Rio). Becoming a member of the AMP Entertainment family has begun a whole new, and very exciting chapter in Josh’s music career. His first release under the AMP imprint is an EP titled, The Gettin' There. The Gettin' There was released in late 2012 and coincided with Josh’s appearance on the docu-reality television series Troubadour TX (www.troubadourtx.com).
The project was co-produced by Dubois and fellow AMP artist/writer Trent Willmon. "Lone Star Highway" was the first single and rose to the top of the Texas Country Music Charts spending three weeks at number 1. "Summer and Sixteen" followed on the heels of "Lone Star Highway" and has helped Josh land some much coveted SiriusXM play as well as the regional support he has enjoyed for many years. Josh will tell you he’d rather be busy than bored, and from the looks of things there will be very few dull moments in the coming months for Mr.
Grider. The road he walks is not for the faint of heart, or the faithless. As well as a musician, Josh is a father, a husband, a brother, and a son. All these roles help keep him grounded and inspired as he travels the highways and byways, chronicling his experiences in the songs he writes, and playing them for any and all who care to hear.
