31 MARCH 2023 (TORONTO, ON) - Today, breakout country singer-songwriter and hitmaker Josh Ross shares his latest track, “Red Flags.” Listen HERE.


The country rock-pop infused track taps into an emotional battle of wanting to stay with someone but knowing that leaving may be the best option for both. “What if I’m bad for you? what if you're worse for me? How many times do we have to go back and forth for one of us to see… What if we’re both Red Flags?” The singer/songwriter’s honest approach, introspective storylines, and acoustic progressions combine to create an incredible piece of music to add to his bustling repertoire of original music.


To celebrate the track’s release, Josh Ross performed for a wall-to-wall crowd last night at Ole Red in downtown Nashville. Near the end of his performance, his upcoming tour mate Lee Brice appeared via FaceTime to share the news with Josh that he would be making his Grand Ole Opry debut later this year. 


“Red Flags” arrives following the recent news of Josh Ross, Universal Music Canada, and The Core Entertainment teaming up with Universal Music Group Nashville. Read the official press release here. Backed by this joint team of innovative industry leaders with deep roots in Canada, Nashville, and beyond, Josh Ross continues to anchor himself as one of this generation’s most promising Country artists.


His second taste of new music in 2023, “Red Flags,” brings forward great anticipation for what’s next for Josh Ross throughout the rest of the year. In addition to building out a world-class team on both sides of the border, within the first few months of the new year, his latest breakout single, “Trouble,” received the #1 spot on Spotify’s New Boots Playlist and was featured in Fox’s hit TV series “Welcome To Flatch” available to watch on Fox and Hulu. He was announced as one of Spotify's Hot Country Artists To Watch 2023, garnered his second Top 5 Canadian radio hit with his track "On A Different Night," and notched over 64.5 million global streams and counting.


With a foundation built on live and personal performances, Josh Ross has won hearts on North and South of the border already with his performance at the 109th Grey Cup on TSN and RDS on the Twisted Tea Grey Cup Halftime alongside Jordan Davis and Tyler Hubbard (watch his performance HERE) and with Bailey Zimmerman as the highly-anticipated opener for three sold-out shows in January 2023. This year, fans can catch him across North America on the Lee Brice Beer Drinking Opportunity Tour in April, Chase Rice’s Way Down Yonder Tour in May and Nickelback and Brantley Gilbert on the extensive Get Rollin’ Tour kicking off in June 2023. See below for full tour dates.
