The Cold Beers and Reindeers Tour begins today in Victoria, Texas at the Victoria Community Theater. This marks the first concert of the 10-day tour throughout Texas and Ark. Popular newcomer Josh Thompson is headlining the tour along with fellow country singers Joanna Smith and James Wesley.

Josh Thompson's debut album 'Way Out Here' has been receiving praises from critics and fans alike. His singles 'Beer on the Table' and 'Way Out Here' also charted within the Top 20 country songs on Billboard upon their release. Josh just recently toured with Eric Church throughout the US.

Opener Joanna Smith's twangy, classic country vocals and energetic songwriting have made her songs, like the single 'Gettin' Married,' definite crowd-pleasers. James Wesley, another opener, has been receiving acclaim for his latest album 'Real.' He had several hits off of the album, one of which was co-written by Neal Coty, who has penned tracks for big names like Mark Chestnutt and Blake Shelton.
