Josiah credits his dad and assistant pastor for introducing him to old-time, bluegrass and gospel singing.

With a little healthy competition in his veins, he entered and won every contest around including; Uncle Dave Macon Days, Smithville Jamboree, Bluegrass on the Harpeth and Wilson County Fair.

Through his participation in competitions, Josiah picked up a few old-time dance techniques as well. He's been known to throw a few high steps into performances of The Kody Norris Show. More than a few fans have been delighted to find themselves on the recieving end of an invitation to dance when Josiah takes the stage.
