Josh Hixson

Josh grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee and in the foothills of Lookout Mountain, Georgia. He was introduced to bluegrass music by his grandfather Fred Hixson as a child but didn't take up the genre until age thirteen when he began playing the guitar. Mandolin soon followed along with the banjo and finally bass. Josh has played in a plethora of different local bands throughout the region including as well as notable groups like the Crowe Brothers and Shannon Slaughter.

Now Josh turns his attention over to the bass where his impeccable timing,tone and taste will be featured in the all-star band that is the Hamilton County Ramblers.

Along with being a talented multi-instrumentalist, Josh also loves the out of doors where he can be found golfing, hunting, and fishing. Josh has a beautiful family - wife Megan and daughter Carlee. Aside from that, Josh is a 9-1-1 dispatcher by trade and enjoys keeping the citizens of his community safe.
