– Josh Gracin had three big hits from his debut disc, but has come up empty handed in setting up his sophomore disc. Now, Gracin is trying again, releasing another single.
The former American Idol season 2 finalist and former Marine is releasing "We Weren't Crazy."
"When we recorded the first album, I was on active duty and flying back and forth between Nashville and Camp Pendleton," said Gracin of the California military base. "It was so busy that I never really got to try my hand at writing. This time around, I got to dig in and share my stories as a songwriter. I'm so proud of how this song turned out."
"We Weren't Crazy," was written by Gracin, Tony Lopacinski and Bobby Pinson and produced by Brett James. The song is about Gracin's personal journey from childhood to raising children and having a family of his own.
Gracin is now slated to put out his sophomore CD in 2008 on Lyric Street Records.
His self-titled debut CD is certified gold by the RIAA and has sold more than 690,000 copies. The first single from the project, "I Want To Live," was also his first hit - climbing the charts to number four in country radio. The second single, "Nothin' To Lose," was number one. His third single "Stay With Me (Brass Bed)" went top five.
