Josh Gracin’s new album, “Nothin’ Like Us,” reestablishes Gracin as one of country music’s most compelling voices – a soulful troubadour with an ear for a great song and a passion for connecting with his audience. On June 1, Gracin takes the Lee Creek Tavern stage inside Cherokee Casino & Hotel Roland for a free show.
The concert begins at 8 p.m.
The Michigan native was first thrust into the national spotlight when he placed fourth on the second season of “American Idol.” He was serving in the Marine Corps at the time and quickly became a fan favorite on the show. With a versatile voice that could excel in any style of music, some urged Gracin to pursue a pop career, but his heart was firmly in the country music he’d loved since childhood.
Gracin signed with Lyric Street Records, and his first three singles, “I Want to Live,” “Nothin’ to Lose” and “Stay with Me (Brass Bed),” all charted in the top five, with “Nothin’ to Lose” climbing to No. 1. His self-titled album was certified gold by the RIAA, cementing the artist as one of country music’s gifted young voices.
The musician’s second album “We Weren’t Crazy,” featured the No. 10 hit single by the same name. Also on the album, the songs “Favorite State of Mind,” “I Keep Coming Back,” “Unbelievable” and “Telluride” landed in the Top 40 on the US Country charts.
Gracin’s latest project, “Nothin’ Like Us,” is a celebration of romance and features “Front Porch Kind of Love” and “Me, a Girl and a Radio.”
