Josh Thompson with special guest Chris Norwood


If you want to know Josh Thompson, just listen to the lyrics of his music. Thompson showcases his undeniable gift for writing with songs like the anthemic “Way Out Here,” or the unapologetic “Blame It On Waylon,” & on his upcoming projects, the “aw, shucks” admittance of “Same Ol’ Plain Ol’ Me,” the nod to his humble background, “Daddy Had A Beer,” & the breathtakingly poignant “I Like To Believe In That.” They’re songs born of a hard-working, blue-collar raising. 

Josh made the move to Nashville in January 2005 and by August, he had signed his first publishing deal. One of the first songs he wrote, “Church Pews Or Bar Stools,” became his first Jason Aldean cut. Most recently Josh co-wrote the title track of Tim McGraw’s album Damn Country Music as well as Jason Aldean’s “Any Ol Barstool.”

Dallas-based musician & singer/songwriter Chris J Norwood has a couple of different personalities.  None of which may ever be considered “cool”, or “hip”, or terribly “rock & roll”, but Chris is ok with that.  By all accounts he’s just an average guy who loves his wife, works hard & tries to stay out of trouble. Classically trained and drawing off of influences from America’s earliest musical traditions like folk, blues & jazz, Chris creates a sound that is strangely familiar, yet uniquely his own.
