When asked whether or not his kids can sing like him, Josh told us they definitely can. “Honestly, all three of them can really sing, but I’m not going to force it,” he EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife in a 2021 interview. “I mean, I surround them with it. If they fall into it one of these days and find one of the instrument suits, then I will stand behind that totally. We just try to surround them with the cool, fun stuff. I certainly am not going to be like a soccer dad about it, whatever that cliché phrase is, but I’d like to encourage them to definitely dig into the arts because it’s so good for the brain.”
Katherine and Josh don’t live in Hollywood.
Katherine and Josh have made a home in Utah full-time since 2010 and love it. “We love it here. There’s not a very big population here. There was a lot of fear during the pandemic. We were definitely nervous about what was going to happen, but we did get very lucky in the fact that we were up here in the middle of nowhere,” Josh EXCLUSIVELY told us when talking about how he and his family coped with the COVID pandemic while living in Utah. “We’re in the mountains and living a similar sort of homestead life that we were living before just heavily masked. It’s been great.”
“Honestly, just to have this extra time for me to be able to help with their studies and actually really see where they’re at with how they learn, what they’re doing well in, and what they’re struggling with,” he continued. “To be honest with you. I think that was a positive. It’s been a little over a year now, and I think we’re all a little bit sick of each other. But we’ve been making a lot of music. Katie and I, one of the things that attracted us to each other is that we love doing things together. We love crafting, and we love creating.”
