TikTok has become a powerful tool for budding musicians. Artists worldwide have jumped on the platform to share their hidden talents and to gain a following in hopes that they would score a record deal or get noticed by leading names in the industry.
Most importantly, the social application has the exceptional ability to transform a nobody into a somebody overnight. In fact, Oklahoma native Josh Woods has experienced this remarkable rise to stardom first-hand. After not receiving the golden ticket to go to Hollywood on the fan-favorite singing competition, American Idol, back in 2015 – the aspiring singer continued to strive for success.
After a few times of auditioning for American Idol alongside sister Haley Woods and throwing his hat in the ring for NBC’s The Voice, the go-getter decided to seek fame in other places.
Woods adapted with the times and took to TikTok to make a name for himself. However, the country newcomer did not win over social-media goers with just his remarkable covers but captured their attention by singing in a car wash.
The music sensation has found a way to combine his love for music, and his everyday job at Tommy’s Express Car Wash in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Within each short clip, he films himself singing [selfie style] during his downtime. He reveals renditions from icons to recent breakthrough stars such as – Brooks & Dunn, Hanks Williams Jr, Keith Urban, Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert, Clay Walker, and more.
His country covers quickly became a hit, and his following skyrocketed. Now, Woods has a loyal fan base of 81.9K and sometimes racks in over a million views. His country twang and wide vocal range have received recognition from radio and TV personality Bobby Bones, Clay Walker, Brooks & Dunn.
