Josh Grider will play the main stage at Bloomin' Temple on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

With a little bit of Luck and Desire- the title of his newest albumthe Las Cruces native found himself in Waco, Texas, and his calling to country music was formed.

“There was this night at Six-Shooter Junction in Waco, Texas.  We had a little thrown-together band and played some cover songs, and I was done. I had already been in this little jazz thing, and they wanted me to sing classical at school, but fronting a band and singing country songs was the place I knew I was meant to be,” Grider said on his website.

 

Grider packed up and moved to Nashville and has been writing and performing ever since. His influences range from classic country artists like Merle Haggard and Marty Robbins to contemporary performers like Dave Matthews and Alan Jackson. He even throws a little bit of Dr. Dre into the mix, showing his ability to branch out and try different things.

“I always say, if my musical influence was a house, it's built on a rock solid concrete foundation of country. But, there's a blues room I can walk in and a jazz room and a classical room, but no matter how many rooms there are, I'm always standing on country.”

Bloomin' is pleased to welcome to the main stage Grider's thoughtful lyrics and classic country sound with a modern twist.
