A man who has lived the music he makes.
A native of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, Josh Thompson began pouring concrete with his father at the age of 12, giving him first hand insight about the trials of hard¬working men everywhere. After arriving in Nashville in 2005, Thompson instantly began writing and quickly established himself as a country artist on the rise. He received his first major songwriter credit with a song called “Growing Up Is Getting Old” which is the title track of Jason Michael Carroll’s current album. Thompson formed a band and drew in a huge fan base by playing raucous, energetic live shows all over the country. Josh’s raw talent, in both songwriting and performing, caught the attention of hit songwriters and eventually led to a major record deal with Columbia Nashville. Thompson’s blue collar lifestyle influences every song he has written, as he tells his stories with candor, honesty and a good¬natured spirit. His debut single, “Beer On The Table,” is one of the most down to earth working man’s anthems in years, a look at the dance between work and play, and the hard won, easy go nature of money that ties them together.
That work ethic, the honesty in his writing and the energy in his performances have combined to make Josh a powerful new voice in country music. His Columbia Nashville debut,Way Ou tHere, showcases a man who has lived the music he makes. Produced by Michael Knox (Jason Aldean) Way Ou tHere features 10 songs solely written or co¬written by Josh.
