Josh Gracin Talks About R&B, Soul Influence On "Good For You"


Josh Gracin shared in a recent interview how R&B and soul influenced his new single, "Good for You."

"Growing up in Michigan, I was exposed to soul and R&B music — you know, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke," Gracin told Taste of Country.

"That's how I learned to sing," he added. "I got into country when I was 13, and it's been country ever since. But I still have that foundation."

"Good for You," co-written by David DeVaul and Robyn Collins, was released in November in partnership with Revel Road Records and Reviver Records.

"To me, country music is about the story, about the lyrics, and 'Good for You' is such a great story," said Gracin.

"It puts you right in there between the old back and forth of trying to get in good graces with the guy or the girl that catches your eye," he said, referring to the theme of the story - a guy trying to impress the woman he's interested in.
