Josh Shilling, in his first show with bluegrass band Mountain Heart, sings on the Grand Ole Opry Stage.
If you've hung around the music rooms and nightclubs of Roanoke and Southside, chances are good you've heard Josh Shilling. The soulful singer and keyboard player has made his mark with several bands. Now, he's strapped on an acoustic guitar and is the lead singer for one of bluegrass music's finest bands, Mountain Heart. Shilling tells us about how he got the gig, what the future holds for the band — and what it was like to be barely adolescent and playing music in nightclubs.
