The Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort Hotel presents Josh Phillips
Nashville Sessions Star
Entertainment at the Nighthawk Lounge.
Born and raised on a 25-acre farm in the small town of Sanford, North Carolina, playing baseball was Josh’s first love. With dreams of playing professionally, he enrolled at Pfeiffer University as a member of the baseball team upon his completion of high school. After an injury plagued first year, he transferred to Pitt Community College. However, a second career torn meniscus forced Josh to hang up the cleats. It was then he started singing for the first time in his life.
Three years after he started his new career, he made the move to Music City. Since being here, his band has had the opportunity to serve as an opening act for Sam Hunt, Cole Swindell, Tyler Farr, Luke Combs and Colt Ford. His musical influences include Hank Williams, Jr., George Strait and Garth Brooks. Josh is currently working on a five-song EP that will be released later this year. Follow him on social media at @imjoshphillips to keep track of his musical happenings.
