Josey Greenwell & Rodiney Santiago Frollick In The Sand For DNA

Do you recognize the name Josey Greenwall? Well, if you’re a country music fan, you may remember a younger him being a Nashville music superstar. However, when Josey decided to make the tough decision to openly come out as gay, he was immediately dropped from his label. Despite the obstacle, Josey didn’t let that stop him and continued to move his career forward. He has since become a very successful model and has many acoustic covers on YouTube garnering him tons of views.

In the latest issue of DNA, Josey talks about life, love, his music and of course, his best friend, Rodiney Santiago who also joined in for part of Josey’s shoot for the mag shot by photographer Richard Gerst. The two frollick in the sand and show off their comradery quite nicely. When Richard asked Josey if he was excited to be on the cover, he said:

Absolutely! I don’t think there are enough words to describe how excited I am, really. I feel extremely honoured to be in such great company with all of the other cover models that have been on DNA’s cover. When I look back at all of your magazines and then see the one with me on the front, it really is a surreal moment that I’m still trying to take in. I think what I’m most excited about is that achieving something like this is the kind of milestone in someone’s career that they never forget.

Aside form the smokin’ hot photos in the mag’s latest issue, Josey and Rodiney teamed up for another YouTube music cover together. This time, the two tackled Britney Spears’ How I Roll. While I know that Josey has quite the voice, Rodiney has proven before that his isn’t the most golden. However, the two pull this song off quite nicely and I almost prefer it to the original. Check out the sexy photos from the mag and the acoustic cover below.

    Just Wow!

  • Photos are amazing and made me drool. However, what the hell was that cover? Rodiney really needs to stick to modelling and not sing.

  • Erik

    Absolutely gorgeous couple, and the cover makes me want to see more of Josey

  • MikeyM

    Gorgeous but somebody please take them out for a burger.

  • Georgie

    Subsrcibing to DNA riigghht… now.

  • Josh

    Based on that video, I’m thinking he was dropped by his label due to a lack of talent, not due to being gay.

  • jay

    they’re cute, but that just sounded awful, like Rebecca Black Friday song kind of awful….

  • gaychris

    1. So cute!
    2. Which label dropped him? I want to be sure to give them none of my money.

  • tommy

    Can’t sing worth shit. Awful. Clearly this is why he was dropped.

    But he’s cute and and looks good in the pictures. Enjoy your 15 minutes, Josey – it’s almost over…

  • D

  • rogelio

    josey is gorgeous, and he has a decent singing voice, tons of artists out there cant sing for their lifes… and they aren’t as cute and hot… so he truly has what it takes…

  • kenn hewett

    just bought josey’s one and only album

  • Colton Gannon

    You realize he is now posing as STRAIGHT singer Nate Greenwell? Yup.

  • Myk

    If his publicist was worth anything, they would have stated that taking pictures like above….MAY ward off his record label. Nothing wrong with the pics, but you have to know who you’re marketing yourself to.

  • EnlightenOne

    That’s “Nate Green” a more masculine name for a prayed away gay!

  • Philip Jones

    we should let him be he fooling himself there no on and off button! he can date as many women but the trueself will never go away!

  • bitterandhappy

    He must think C/W music lovers are total idiots if they won’t realize Nate is Josie. This is the age of permanent videos downloaded all over the world. I would suspect that C/W fans in general are religious and Tea Party types. You would think he would have thought about this before becoming a faux C/W singer in the first place. Now he has BOTH gay people and traditional C/W people (in the know) mad at him. What a douche bag.

  • jrgius

    He’s a fool for thinking his fans won’t know who he really is, his past gay shenanigans are EVERYWHERE and that performance in Detroit was EMBARRASSINGLY awful. He should take whatever people are stupid enough to think he has talent beyond being the bottom he clearly is.
