Josh Ward has done far more in his career than make his name synonymous with “genuine country music” over the last decade. His is also one of the most recognizable names in Texas, an All-Star player whose music has become a landmark at radio with ten consecutive #1 hit singles to his credit. Add to that social media numbers that rank in the millions, a presence on both the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and the iTunes Country Chart, a robust tour schedule offering over 200 dates a year and sold out shows across the country, and you begin to see the magnitude of a burgeoning career grown organically with a root system that now has a wide lateral reach. And so, on October 26th Ward will step up to the plate in the big leagues and take his first swing with the national release of his new single “Ain’t It Baby.” This marks the second single to roll off his new album “More Than I Deserve” and the first to hit mainstream radio stations. A moonlit serenade reminiscing about stealing first base, “Ain’t It Baby” is already finding a home in major markets.
It was in 2012 when Ward first hit his stride in the notorious Texas music scene with the release of his first full length album “Promises.” It was that year that radio discovered their new banner artist with three singles hitting the #1 spot on the Texas Regional radio Chart with “Hard Whiskey,” “Promises” and “Sent Me You.”“Holding Me Together” in 2015 proved yet another triumphant release with all six singles settling in to the #1 spot including the chart’s “Song of the Year” “Whiskey & Whitley,” “Highway,” “Somewhere Between Right And Wrong,” “Broken Heart,” “Change My Mind” and “You Don’t Have To Be Lonely.” His new 2018 release “More Than I Deserve” was released amassed just shy of 300,000 streams in the first few weeks of its release and debuted at #15 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and #5 on the iTunes country albums chart. The album’s first single “All About Lovin’” fell right in line with Ward’s succession of hit singles making it an even ten #1’s. “Ain’t It Baby” will also be released to Texas radio on October 22nd.
