Josh worked with producers Marty Williams and Brett James on the CDs eleven tracks.

here is the article abotu Josh, it is long and painfully detailed

Josh Gracin's crazy ride

Here are some excerpts

'American Idol" is the biggest TV show in America, but its track record as a launching pad for successful musical careers is spotty at best. For every bona fide discovery like Kelly Clarkson or Chris Daughtry, there are a half-dozen Anthony Federovs or Anwar Robinsons, contestants who, after the show, fade into the abyss and are never heard from again.

Josh Gracin was one of the lucky ones. The stocky Westland-bred Marine from the show's second season parlayed his "Idol" exposure into a promising country career, and his self-titled 2004 album spawned three hit singles, "I Want to Live," "Nothin' to Lose" and "Brass Bed." It went gold, selling more than 697,000 copies, only 4,000 fewer than fifth season "Idol" champ Taylor Hicks.

He avoids getting into specifics, but he hints at butting heads with those in his inner circle as the "We Weren't Crazy" drama unfolded, as well as the near-decimation of his marriage to his high school sweetheart in the same time period. Ultimately, he says, the situation humbled him, made him re-evaluate his attitude, and helped him avoid being dragged through "a downplayed, countrified version of what Britney Spears is going through now" -- a mess that would have wiped him out physically, mentally and creatively.

Gracin's relationship with his wife has been as rocky as the road to "We Weren't Crazy's" release. Two years ago, he gave his ring back to her and was ready to call it quits, following months of fighting stemming from his being on the road and her being at home with their children. Now, he knows sticking it out was the right thing to do. Listening to the new album's "I Don't Want to Live" -- "I admit I was wrong all along, now you're gone with all that I'd been living for/ I don't wanna live without you, anymore" -- Gracin says, "I know I made the right decision every time I hear this song.
