Josh Thompson

With a growing list of hits to his credit, Show Dog Universal recording artist Josh Thompson has defined his place in country music with the simple formula of being who he is: the embodiment of whatever-it-takes, hard-working, blue-collar grit. From his songwriting that ran throughout his Top 10 debut album, Way Out Here, to the dynamic live shows that have earned him opening slots for such established headliners as Dierks Bentley and CMA Entertainer of the Year winner Brad Paisley, Josh Thompson's passionate performances and tireless work ethic have made him the epitome of the musical road warrior, playing nearly 250 shows in 2010 alone.
His debut album, Way Out Here, established Josh as a formidable young talent, launching a trio of hits including "Won't Be Lonely Long"; the Top 15 title track "Way Out Here"; and the Top 10 first single, "Beer on the Table."
Josh comes by his music's heartland, blue-collar work & party themes with an everyman's insight of an everyman who's been there. Born in Milwaukee and raised in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, Thompson was working alongside his father in the concrete business at the age of 12, and the trade was often how Josh was paying the bills well into his twenties as his focus shifted to music.
He feels country music is real life set to music where there is no sugar coating just what you see and hear is what you get. This also accurately describes the man himself. Shortly after arriving in Nashville, Josh quickly began to establish himself as a singer/songwriter on the rise in the country music scene. He began writing with noted Nashville songwriters like Monty Holmes, Ash Underwood, George Ducas, Julie Roberts, Chris Young, and others.

Josh Thompson is not just a songwriter but a country music artist. His talent is widely recognized by both fans and Nashville music professionals alike. He has a soulful distinctive voice and a style reminiscent of legends like Haggard, Waylon, and Cash. Josh recognizes that his life will always be grounded by the blood, sweat, and tears of his blue collar life.

His songs are about real life love, anger, hurt, loss, and more raw emotions that ring true with brutal honesty to everyone who hears them. He says “country music is his ultimate therapy.” So it should be no surprise that much like others before he has turned the events of his own life into songs that touch the heart and soul of those who listen.” If you want to know who Josh Thompson is –his music tells his story. Last year's release of his debut album, Way Out Here, established Josh as a formidable young talent, launching a trio of hits including "Won't Be Lonely Long"; the Top 15 title track "Way Out Here"; and the Top 10 first single, "Beer on the Table."
