Friday, December 6 : Josh Thompson

It’s been clear since the release of Way Out Here that Thompson did indeed have it together.  In that project, he established many of the same working-class themes and images that continue to populate his writing, and he found a ready audience. “Beer On The Table” and “Way Out Here,” his first two singles, reached the Top 20 on the national country charts, and another of the album’s tracks – “Blame It On Waylon” – became a key link as he began attracting rabble-rousing crowds of blue-collar believers.
