Josh Osborne’s Writing Skills Land Him A #1 Song With “Come Over.”
On stands now, Country Weekly’s August 20 issue features Black River Publishing writer Josh Osborne with Shane McAnally and Sam Hunt as the songwriters of Kenny Chesney’s multi-week number one, “Come Over.”
Certified Gold in just over nine weeks, “Come Over” is the fastest Gold single certification in Chesney’s career and the first number one for Osborne.
In addition to “Come Over,” Josh also co-wrote Chris Young’s current single, “Neon,” and the Lost Trailers’ single, “American Beauty.” On August 2, “American Beauty” was featured during a Late Night In London montage celebrating American gymnast and gold medalist Gabby Douglas. Josh Osborne, Mason Douglas and Matt Jenkins specifically tailored the lyrics for the segment honoring Gabby on Dial Global Sports, the exclusive national radio broadcaster for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Osborne’s songwriting has also made its mark in Hollywood. Pop star Katy Perry took special notice of “Merry Go ‘Round,” the debut single from new artist Kacey Musgraves. She recently raved via a tweet to her 25 million international followers, “I love this song/video by Kacey Musgraves…GREAT chorus.”
