Joshua Hedley is the subject of the latest “My Opry Debut” episode, which premiered exclusively at Rolling Stone Country. Of the mini-documentary, Rolling Stone Country proclaims, “The vocalist offers a pristine delivery, reinforcing his reputation as one of country’s new crop of must-hear live performers.” Chronicling Hedley’s preparation and experience debuting at the legendary Grand Ole Opry, the video includes exclusive performance footage of “I Never (Shed A Tear)” plus scenes of Old Crow Medicine Show’s Cory Younts surprising Hedley with the Opry invitation during a live interview at WSM Radio.
Hedley’s Opry debut coincides with the release of his critically acclaimed album, “Mr. Jukebox”. Out now on Third Man Records (available for streaming & purchase HERE), the full-length debut continues to receive overwhelming critical praise…

“Mr. Jukebox, his Third Man Records debut, showcases the pristine voice for which Hedley initially came to be known, with lush, even ornate arrangements that recall the sounds employed by Hedley’s influences, like Ernest Tubb and Eddy Arnold.”
“Joshua Hedley is a multi-tooled ace: an expert fiddle player, deft songwriter and pristine vocalist. All of those skills are on display on Hedley’s superb debut, which embraces not the tired Outlaw-country trend du jour but the often-minimized Countrypolitan sound of
Music City past.”
“It’s the juxtaposition of that outsized gruffness with Hedley’s hidden sensitivity that makes the vulnerable, heart-tugging songs of Mr. Jukebox so affecting.”
