Exclusive Audio Premiere: Josh Merritt - “Give It To Me”

Take a listen to this stellar new tune from rising singer/songwriter Josh Merritt, exclusively on Roughstock!

Like always, we’re on the hunt for great music to share with y’all. The music we’re constantly looking for is something that moves us (and hopefully you too). “Give It To Me,” a new track from Josh Merritt, is one of those songs. From his forthcoming semi-autobiographical country concept / breakup record, 206, the song is an upbeat country rocker about seeing the first flashes of red flags in a new relationship that is fast turning into trouble. It’s this kind of honest songwriting which suggests that we’ve got a major talent in the making with this record, unafraid to make the kind of Country/roots music which tackles deeper topics than trucks, boozy summertime life scapes or “perfect” relationships.

Co-produced, engineered & mixed by Zach Kasik, who worked with Jamey Johnson on the platinum-selling That Lonesome Song, “Give It To Me is a song that Josh says, “it deals with that toxic relationship, the healing on the other side of it, and the growth in between. Really, I made a record about a page out of my diary. It's not meant to be vindictive toward the other person; I'm just telling a story about how I felt in those moments, and hoping somebody can relate—I think that's really the big job of being a songwriter."
