In today's day and age, it’s hard to find songs that captures the American Spirit. The times of past country cowboy songs have changed hands to today’s Lady Gaga and Kid Cudi. Josh Thompson’s new album steps back in time, while still being relevant to today’s society. The hit song and namesake of the album, “Way out Here”, pays homage to America’s country lifestyle. This album is great. It’s one of the best country albums released recently. That’s also one of its biggest faults. Many people who have grown up in large cities are not familiar with country music. Yet, I think most of you will be able to connect with Thompson’s down home roots and rural way of living.
