Some have their eyes dead set on pursuing music at a young age. Others, like Joshua Dorr, are destined to fall into it. Born in the small coal mining town of Gillette, Wyo., the 25-year-old grew up an outdoorsman and an athlete. He pursued football through his junior year of college, but after enduring numerous on-field injuries, he found therapy in music and songwriting.
It was extremely difficult for Joshua to leave his family, friends and college to chase his new dream of becoming a country music singer-songwriter in Nashville, Tenn. His goal is simple: to share his stories and words with listeners so that they can relate and connect with them. Nashville has served as Joshua’s home since the summer of 2010, and Nashville is where this Wyoming native is going to stay.
