Ep. 4 From a Drug Problem & Prison Sentence to Country Music Star: Josh Scott on Transformation & Second Chance to do Right
Peter “Chappy” Meyerhoff sits down with country music superstar Josh Scott.
After losing his dad due to medical malpractice, Josh turned to meth, which “made everything in life that was important unimportant, and all the dumb shit that’s unimportant really important.” He proceeded to go “off the deep end” and ended up in prison in 2005 at the age of 27.
Josh went straight back to drugs after he was released and, soon after, he came across a string of opportunities that eventually led him to a breakthrough gig in Las Vegas. At that point, the majority of Josh’s life was a terrible combination of showbiz, and drug and gambling addiction. He lived a double life: performing three days, committing felonies and rubbing shoulders with the mob the other four days.
As fate would have it, Josh found himself in jail for another nine years and ended up missing out on countless milestones in the lives of his family, including his son’s graduation. His lengthy time behind bars was a transformative period in his life and taught him lessons he would never forget.
Today, not only is Josh a successful country music artist, but he also dedicates his time to doing good in the lives of others, from his various philanthropic initiatives to coaching her daughter’s high school basketball team.
“God gave me a second chance,” says Josh. “He gave me an angle to do some good, and that’s all I want to do.”
