NASHVILLE, TENN. - (October 15, 2019) – Nashville-based singer/songwriter/guitarist,Josh Martin, is teaming up with Rick Ware Racing and Gotta Kill It To Heal It Apparelcompany to raise money for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Martin is set to release a special single titled “You’re Not Alone” on October 27th in alignment with the NASCAR Monster Energy First Data 500 race at Martinsville Speedway. One-hundred percent of net proceeds raised by the single through December 31 will go directly to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The race will feature the number 53 car wrapped in pink ribbons with names of survivors and current fighters of breast cancer.

Martin, a native of eastern Kentucky, has been in Nashville for six years working as a studio musician and writing songs with some of the industry’s most sought after songwriters. He recently completed his first full-length album titled Nothing Holding Me that will be released on December 3rd of this year. Martin recalls going through a very dark time in his life, shortly after losing his first major deal in Nashville. Those months, he says, “were the inspiration for this song”.

“We all go through many different seasons in our lives and some can feel very cold, dark, and isolated,” Martin said. “I cannot imagine the flood of emotions someone has after being diagnosed with breast cancer. It always hits real close to home.”

Martin, whose own family has had battles with the disease, hopes the song will be a comfort to those currently in the thick of their own. “Every minute a mother, grandmother, wife or daughter is diagnosed and finds themselves at the start of a battle,” he states. “That is exactly what this song is about. Recognizing that someone you deeply care for is in need of your support and assuring them that no matter the circumstances, you will be right there beside them every step of the way”.

Martin co-wrote the song with Kent Blazy, known for his songs recorded by Garth Brooks including Brooks first ever #1 hit, “If Tomorrow Never Comes.” Blazy knows first-hand what it means to be there for someone battling cancer. Although it was of a different kind, his late wife, Sharon, passed in 2009 after a long fight with a brain tumor. Martin feels that even though this event is centered around breast cancer awareness, the song could be a glimmer of hope for anybody going through anything.

“You’re Not Alone” will be available on Sunday, October 27th on most digital platforms including
Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Music, Spotifyand Tidal as well as directly atJoshMartinOfficial.com. To find out more about or become involved with the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, visit their website at www.KayYow.com.

About Josh Martin:
Josh Martin signed with Sony/ATV Music as a writer and artist in 2016, spending two years in writing rooms with some of the best in the game, releasing two singles, “How’d You Know” and “Just My Luck.”When he was let go from the deal, his head was spinning. The suits wanted him to be a radio star, forcing his stellar guitar chops into three chords, and his versatile baritone into a slick auto-tuned whine. He found himself free falling for a few months, questioning who he was and what he wanted to be musically. As the fog cleared, he knew he had to go back to what he loved. “It took me a good six months and almost hitting rock bottom from a career standpoint to figure it out,” Martin explains. “I realized I’m not a guy who is going to show up every day and try to write for radio. I’m a musician first and that is what led me to these songs. I had at least 200 to choose from, but it was pretty clear after about two days of listening what direction to go to – and that was my buried roots, the roots that had been there for twenty-some years.”

Martin points to the title track of his most recent project as the song that immediately resonated. It is a story of escape, without the actual ability to escape. He calls it a true song of Kentucky, where his Floyd County Scot-Irish kin was grandfathered into the idea that you cannot really leave. It’s the cultural tradition, the family, the job you hope will show up, it is a way of life. Though Martin (with his high-school sweetheart and, eventually, immediate family) took the road south to Music City, he still lives with the guilt of escaping Appalachia. Each day his emotions remain in conflict: relief that he escaped the downward spiral drug culture there and a pinning for the Mayberry-esque utopia of his childhood. That sentiment echoes in his intimate vocal on the track, which falls somewhere between Tyler Childers and Eric Church. It’s rough, joyful and just a little bit sexy. The record nails that tension effortlessly. It’s hammered in around a bluegrass core, with inflections of country music and hints of the rock and roll he picked up as a teenager. The players are some of the best, from Chris Stapleton’s bass player J.T. Cure to Blake Shelton’s secret weapon, fiddle player Jenee Fleenor. Though many of the songs are co-written, two tracks are Martin’s alone. As a songwriter, his goal has always been to tell the truth, even if the truth is hurtful. Nothing Holding Me, his current project is a testament to life in Kentucky, where he used to run up and down the holler roads – going anywhere he wanted, because he could. That freedom, he says, rings out in every note of this collection. You can hear traces of Guy Clark and Darrell Scott in his lyrics, and the echo of John Mayer and Tony Rice in his guitar licks – and a hint of old-time spirituality in his voice. The songs are both smart and accessible, running wild and smiling back at Nashville from the open road. Martin has finally found his musical freedom.
