New England's very own country artist Joseph Gallant stopped by last week for a very special local version of our WOKQ sessions.

It's always great to feature local artists. He's from Maine but after finding success here in New England and down the East Coast in his first 18 months as a solo country artist, he decided to move to Nashville, Tennessee, to follow his dreams and maybe become the next country superstar.

Gallant was in town because he was opening up for Granger Smith at Bernie's Beach Bar in Hampton Beach, NH. He has shared the stage with some pretty huge country stars like Kip Moore, Jake Owens, Josh Turner, Lindsay Ell, Russell Dickerson, Chase Rice, Cody Johnson, Scotty McCreery, Justin Moore and many more.

I got the opportunity to chat with him and I've seen him live as well when he opened for Justin Moore at The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. Very talented and even a better person. Good luck Joseph!
