1) The country artist signed to Columbia Nashville:

Josh Thompson (born January 23, 1978 in Cedarburg, Wisconsin)
In Josh Thompson, working-class country has found its most authentic spokesman in a generation. A compelling singer, he is an artist whose songwriting reflects both the gritty realities of blue-collar life and the beer-fueled release of the Friday-night honky-tonk.

There is no doubt about his work ethic, which was perhaps most evident in the days when he was juggling the publishing deal he earned just seven months after moving to Nashville and the trade he had worked at since he was 12.

“I was still pouring concrete three days a week,” he says. “A lot of times I’d start at 7, then wash off with a garden hose and head to a writing appointment. Some nights I’d write songs until 2:30, get up at 6, splash some water on my face and do it again.”

That work ethic, the honesty in his writing and the energy in his performances have combined to make Josh a powerful new voice in country music. Thompson’s Columbia Nashville debut, Way Out Here, showcases the man who has lived the music he makes.

Way Out Here, above all, shows Thompson’s personal journey through the landscape of the people whose love and loss, living and dying have fueled the best of country music.
