Josh Thompson Doesn’t Mind Waiting for a Bus

Josh ThompsonJosh Thompson has logged 170,000 miles in his Econoline van, burning up the roads as he’s been touring the country the past few years. While a luxury tour bus would definitely be a more comfortable way to go, the singer knows that’s not a smart economic move for someone who’s still such a new artist. And even though he does have a record label that could help him buy a bus, he’d still have to pay for it down the road.

“Sony could spring for one,” Josh tells the Toledo Blade, “but that just goes on my red balance sheet. That’s like mortgaging a house.”

Josh has always been practical when it comes to his career and his way of live. Before moving to Nashville, the Wisconsin native built a hut in the woods, living off the land for nine months to see if he could do it. “I learned that the main part of survival is psychological,” he says. “I learned that I could be taken out of my comfort zone and still make it. That helped a lot when I moved to Nashville.”

Josh’s latest single, ‘Way Out Here,’ speaks to the simplicity of living the kind of life Josh experience in the woods.
