After a years on the RCA Records branch of Sony Music Nashville, Josh Thompson is going his own way. The singer was originally signed to the Columbia imprint and released his debut Top 10 album 'Way Out Here' in 2010. The album produced three Top 30 singles, including the title track that peaked at No. 15, as well as 'Beer on the Table' (No. 17) and 'Won't Be Lonely Long' (No. 25).

After the label experienced some changes, Thompson was bumped over to the RCA Records side of things, where he had been gearing up for the release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album, 'Change.' The album's lead single, 'Comin' Around,' had been a Top 30 hit for the singer in recent weeks, just before the plug was pulled on it at radio, leading up to the news of him leaving the label roster.

More details about Thompson's departure are still forthcoming. Earlier this month, Kellie Pickler too announced her split from Sony Nashville.
