During that time I gained a deep appreciation for our beautiful land and freedom in this country. I'm eternally grateful to those who fight to protect that freedom every day. When I'm not making music, my favorite place to be is way out in the country surrounded by open fields, blue skies and fresh air. I am Josh Thompson and I am NRA Country.”

ABOUT JOSH THOMPSON: RCA singer/songwriter Josh Thompson stormed onto the country music scene with his debut album WAY OUT HERE – debuting in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart and earning praise from countless critics, including NPR’s Fresh Air, Billboard and People. Thompson wrote or co-wrote all 10 tracks on the album including hits, “Won’t Be Lonely Long,” “Way Out Here” and “Beer On The Table.” Thompson is also a respected songwriter with several outside cuts by the likes of Jason Aldean and Brad Paisley. The blue-collar road warrior played over 250 shows last year ranging from headlining club dates to sold-out arenas with Hank Williams, Jr., Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church and more. Thompson recently released "Comin' Around" as the lead single from his second studio album, CHANGE, due out later this year.
