After playing three sold-out shows on the Jagermeister Country Tour this past weekend, Josh Thompson is heading to his hometown of Milwaukee to celebrate the release of his debut album, Way Out Here, in stores tomorrow. Tonight, Thompson will be signing CDs and performing at a club event presented by WMIL at the Northern Lights Theatre. On tomorrow’s release day, Josh will visit his friends at KEEY before playing a club event and CD signing at The Cabooze in Minneapolis.
Josh Thompson’s Columbia Nashville debut Way Out Here features his Top 20 single, “Beer On The Table,” as well as 9 additional songs that he wrote or co-wrote. Josh began pouring concrete with his father at the age of 12, giving him first hand insight about the trials of hard-working people everywhere. That work ethic, the honesty in his writing and the energy in his performances have combined to make Josh Thompson a powerful new voice in country music. Way Out Here is a collection of songs that showcases a man who has lived the music he makes.
“This past year has been fast and crazy – but I love fast and crazy!” Josh says of the February 23 album release. “I am beside myself that my debut album will hit stores all over this country tomorrow. I hope the fans enjoy this piece of my life and music as much as I did living and creating it.”
Thompson will return to Music City on Wednesday in preparation for Country Radio Seminar, which is in Nashville this week. He will be performing on the Grand Ole Opry stage on Friday night before heading up to Bowling Green, KY for another club show later that evening.
