CountryTown in partnership with iHeartCountry Australia is proud to announce Josh Setterfield as our Artist Of The Week, following the release of his new single, Right About Now.

Raised in Wangi Wangi, near Newcastle, the singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist exploded onto the scene after transitioning from pop punk frontman-to-solo country entertainer in 2016. He has since released three EPs, all of which debuted in the top 5 on the iTunes country charts and have accrued over half a million streams.

Building a loyal fanbase around the country with a unique sound, Setterfield has delivered knockout performances at major festivals, the PBR (Professional Bull Riding) and alongside noteworthy names like American country band Love and Theft, Casey Barnes, The Wolfe Brothers, Shannon Noll, Travis Collins, The Viper Creek Band and more.

His new single, Right About Now is a rhythm driven, modern country pop-rock song about the playful side of a new flame and taking a chance. Written by powerhouse writers, Craig Brooks and Jesse Slack, the song was produced, written and mixed across Canada and USA.

Setterfield says, “The second I heard the song, I knew this track explained a part of my life in a nostalgic way. I felt it told the story of a moment I had already lived and so related to it instantly."
