This is the part where we are supposed to explain who Thompson is. Oh puh-lease!
Thompson, who received a nomination for Artist of the Year by the Americana Music Awards, released Electric earlier this year. The album features his band The Electric Trio, which is made up of the folk rock artist along with bassist Taras Prodaniuk and drummer Michael Jerome.
