Josh Thompson Remembers His First Time

Josh Thompson couldn’t be happier with where he is in life right this minute. His breakout hit, ‘Beer on the Table,’ has kicked in big-time, making him one to watch on the country horizon.

So where was he when he heard that first hit record on the radio?

“I was in the car on Highway 5 between Portland and Seattle, Wash.,” Josh tells The Boot of hearing ‘Beer …’ on the radio, his voice rising with excitement. “It was in the afternoon. I was with two of my record reps and we were leaving one radio station and going to another.”

“I was in the back seat,” Josh continues, “and the song came on. It was a little static-y, but I make them crank it up, and we jammed out to it. This was in August ’09. At first I hit the eject button on the CD player. [I thought], ‘Really!? This is on the radio?!’ I was shocked more than anything. I could not believe I was on country radio right now.

“There’s so many emotions that I went through, and I wanted to call people but I didn’t want to talk to anybody while the song was playing. It was a great afternoon. I think they stopped and got me a six-pack to celebrate. I waited for that moment my whole life. When it was released, I [thought], ‘OK, at any point in time, I can hear it and it will be a big surprise.’ And it was!”
