Josh Thompson Sparks 'Sinner' Mania

Sony Music Nashville
Josh Thompson wrote the song 'Sinner' as a personal confession but strong fan response to it has convinced him it speaks to many. In almost every concert, whether Josh is the headliner or supporting act, the audience gets to their feet when they hear the opening notes of the song, and they join him in singing the lyrics.

"I also get mail from fans saying how much the song has touched their lives," Josh told the Boot, adding that he personally answers some of the more poignant messages. "Mainly, they write about how they've been sinners and hit rough patches and that song has pulled them through. It's a powerful song. Sometimes that song is my song and sometimes it's theirs."

What continually surprises Josh is how far fans will travel to hear him and others in concert.

"Six years ago, no one knew me and now people travel pretty long distances," he says, recalling a concert he performed with Jack Ingram and Gloriana. "One woman drove from Pennsylvania to Montana. She had read we were all [performing] and she said she liked us all so much, she decided to drive out there."

Soon there will be more music from Josh to love. Although no official date been set for his second album, Josh says it could be released as early as later this year.
