Joshua Hedley (from the album Mr. Jukebox available on Third Man Records)
Produly standing on the Stagecoach Festival stage Joshua Hedley announced ‘I play Country music’. Joshua went on to explain that he did not want to see any partying in the audience, only tears. His crown for King of Broken Hearts shines as brightly on his recent release, Mr. Jukebox, as the Cowboy suits he wears in performance. The title track is a neon-lit singalong, Joshua Hedley promising to select the right song for the right mood in his role as “Mr. Jukebox”. Soft strums and hums surround the smooth delivery as Joshua Hedley looks for some breathing room to begin again inhis arrival “Let’s Take a Vacation”, matches rattling rhythm with rattling lips in “Let Them Talk”, slowly unravels a goodbye in “Counting All My Tears”, and leads a version of “When You Wish Upon a Star” around the dance floor.
Joshua Hedley spent time playing in Robert’s Western World from his arrival in Nashville at nineteen years old, bringing the fiddle he had played since age eight as he made the move north from Florida. Lower Broadway in Nashville has been his home turf prior to spreading out to tour his Mr. Jukebox debut recording to a wider audience. Joshua Hedley is a modern day Country crooner, whispering his message in “Don’t Waste Your Tears”, stacking excuses higher and higher for “I Never (Shed a Tear)”, and setting a honky tonk trot in a circle around “Four Walls” as Mr. Jukebox draws the line in leaving with “This Time”.
