Show Dog–Universal recording artist Josh Thompson is hitting the road on tour this spring and summer and country-lifestyle brand NRA Country is coming along for the ride!
Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and country star JOSH THOMPSON has been selected as the NRA Country Artist of the Month for July. He joins some of country music’s biggest artists including Trace Adkins, Rodney Atkins, Lee Brice, Montgomery Gentry, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Sunny Sweeney, Gretchen Wilson, and TV personality Storme Warren, who have teamed up with NRA Country to celebrate their support of our brave men and women in uniform, appreciation for the great outdoors, and love of family. Thompson’s strong beliefs and love for the great outdoors make him a great fit for the NRA Country Artist of the Month promotion.
“Before I moved to Nashville, I took a wilderness course where I lived entirely off the land for 9 months. 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.”
Josh Thompson will be hitting the road this weekend as part of the Country Throwdown tour — and Josh says he’s really jazzed about the tour because not only is he looking forward to playing for the fans, he also gets to be part of a show with friends like Justin Moore and Sunny Sweeney, as well as one of Josh’s musical heroes, Gary Allan.
“I’m on the Throwdown tour with my B.F.F. Justin Moore and Gary Allan, which I’m super, super pumped up about ’cause I’ve…he’s probably been my biggest modern country influence, ever. I mean, since Smoke Rings in the Dark came out. And Sunny Sweeney’s gonna be on there — love her, too. There’s gonna be a couple other acts. It’s gonna be fun. It’s gonna be a blast.”
Thompson says that when you get the right group of people together, big tours like Country Throwdown can be a great time off-stage as well as on. “There is time to hang out with everybody on those big tours, if you make it. It can turn into one gigantic party, you know, backstage, but that comes with that comfort ability level. Like, Justin and I have known each other, his band and my band have known each other for a while. We’ve been out…I mean, so there’s that, you know, that camaraderie there. I mean, I’ve known Sunny for a while, and her band and our band and everybody’s band really gets along, so this tour I’m really lookin’ forward to. The only person that I don’t know that well is Gary. But hopefully, this summer’ll fix it.”
The tour kicks off today, Friday, May 18th, in Gulfport, Mississippi! For tour dates and a complete line-up of artists, also including Rodney Atkins, Eric Paslay, and more, check out the official tour website at CountryThrowdown.com.
