Daily Discovery: Josh Helms, “Great Country Song”
ARTIST: Josh Helms
SONG: ”Great Country Song”
BIRTHPLACE: Winter Haven, FL
AMBITIONS: To have my own super hero figurine, “Melody Man.” I would not fly, but I would still wear a cape because… well, I don’t feel like I need to explain that.
TURN-OFFS: 25 minute explanations of the 4 minute song that took you 15 minutes to write on your 30 minute lunch break.
TURN-ONS: Chinese electric waterfall signs, American music, Mexican food, Aztech Paintings, German Beer, French Fries.
DREAM GIG: Cinderella’s Castle stage in Walt Disney World. This is serious.
PETS: A dog named Presley (as in the King.)
TV ADDICTIONS: My favorite show used to be “Hoarders” until I discovered the show “Pet Hoarders” which is just like “Hoarders” except these people fill their houses with cats and chickens and such.
5 THINGS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN: Leather boots, a Bear Grylls endorsed multi-tool, an acoustic guitar handed down by a Dad or Grandpa, a beard, a great story about how you broke your leg
CELEBRITY CRUSH: Angelina Jolie, but just so I could meet Brad Pitt. Then I would talk him into ditching her so we could hang out at the mall or catch a movie.
I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: gas in my truck.
I WROTE THIS SONG: by myself in my basement about a year ago. The references to places and people are real here in Nashville.
