If you're looking for unapologetic, hard-core, no holds barred COUNTRY music, Josh Ward is your man. He is a throwback to the 1990s, and a better boot scootin' time. In June the Texas native will become the the 50th artist to release an iconic Live at Billy Bob's Texas album.

Ward really began to get his footing in the Texas scene when he released his third album Promises in June 2012. The album's first radio single “Get Away” reached No. 18 on the Texas Regional Radio Chart. Its second single, “Rainout Hangout,” was a hit, peaking inside the Top 5. “Sent Me You” was the third release and it became his very first No. 1 on both the Texas Regional Radio Report and The Texas Music Chart in April 2013.

Ward had gotten his first taste of a No. 1 single, and he liked it. A lot.

That first one kicked off an unprecedented run atop the Texas charts for Ward. Since 2013, spanning just a little over six years, every radio single he has released has risen to the top of Texas radio. He has notched 11 straight chart toppers, and the country crooner looks to continue that streak with his latest release, "The Devil Don't Scare Me."

If you’d have told me 15 years ago I would be the 50th Artist to record a Live at Billy Bob's Texas album, I’d have told you “that would be a dream come true”. 15 years later I’m looking at a Double Live Album with my name on it. Can’t even begin to explain or describe the honor. We can’t wait for y’all to hear the whole thing. Thanks Billy Bob's Texas and Smith Music Group for believing in us and giving us the honor! Get ready! June 21st is coming and we want you all there!

Not to jinx it, bit at its current pace, it's not outside the realm of possibilities that right about the time his latest single becomes his 12th consecutive No. 1, Josh Ward Live at Billy Bob's Texas will be out.

Almost as if it's meant to be.
