About Josh Thompson:
Born to a hard-working Wisconsin concrete worker in the small town of Cedarburg, country hitmaker Josh Thompson changed his path from his blue-collar raising to destined country stardom when he picked up a guitar at the age of 21. Soon playing anthems from legends such as George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Hank Senior, Thompson found a passion in performing and wrote his first song just six months later. Making a “name in this town” shortly after moving to Nashville in 2005, the singer-songwriter signed his first publishing deal just one month later and soon released his debut album, Way Out Here. With his first two singles, “Beer on the Table” and “Way Out Here” grossing almost one million downloads, Thompson’s songs have since been cut by several country music mainstays, including artists such as Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Gary Allan, Darius Rucker, Justin Moore, and Joe Nichols. Recently gaining media attention for co-writing Jason Aldean’s current #1 hit single, “Any Ol’ Bar Stool,” Thompson’s new album Change: The Lost Record is out now.
