About Josh Thompson
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.

Josh Thompson’s passionate performances and tireless work ethic have made him the epitome of the musical road warrior, playing over 200 shows a year. 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.
Over the past couple of years, Josh has also established himself as a noted songwriter in Nashville. His songs have been recorded by such artists as Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, and Gary Allan.
