Josh Thompson Records Duet With Justin Moore for Sophomore Album
Last week, Josh Thompson took advantage of all his famous friends being in town for the CMA Awards by asking his singing buddy Justin Moore to come into the recording studio to lay down vocals on a new tune. The duet will be one of the many highly-anticipated new tracks that will be found on Thompson's forthcoming sophomore album on RCA Records.
Thompson and Moore struck up a friendship on and off the stage back in early 2010 when the two met out on the road. That same year, the two were reunited when they were part of Brad Paisley's H2O tour. They have since talked openly about some day hitting the road together on a tour of their own, seeing how they share the same type of country music fans.
"We just always have a blast when we’re together," Thompson told Taste of Country back in August. "I think we could do a tour together, but a short tour, like 10 or 12 dates, because if we toured together for too long, it would probably be reckless [laughs]. I think that our fan bases are pretty close in the sense that it’s pretty much the same. It always seems to be a rowdy crowd at our shows. It would be awesome. It would be great to get out on the road and do some shows together."
The first single from Thompson's yet-to-be-titled new album will be 'Comin' Around,' which will be impacting radio on Dec. 13.
Thompson is currently back out on the road with Luke Bryan, Lee Brice and CMT's 'Next Superstar' winner Matt Mason on the 2011 CMT Tour. Click here for a complete list of dates where the tour and Thompson will be throughout the remainder of the year.
