Detroit Native, Josh Gracin, Headlining Hoedown

DETROIT (WWJ) - The Downtown Hoedown is seeing music stars from all over the county, but headlining this year's Hoedown is a Detroit native. Josh Gracin grew up in Westland, but has lived in Nashville for many years.

Gracin, speaking live on WWJ, says his heart never strayed far from the Motor City: "It took me, actually, a long time to switch over my drivers license, I finally did and it's always good to come back home and be back among friends and family," says Gracin on WWJ Newsradio 950.

"To drive by or walk through places that I grew up or hung around, I enjoy it everytime," Gracin adds.
