Akin to his Midwest values, Trace Thompson believes that music should be “real”, and his songwriting is a product of his life and those around him. A student of the 80s and 90s rock and country scene, Trace strives to make his music relatable and fun, but also have meaning. His passion for music rekindled in 2012 on the honky tonk stages in Texas and Oklahoma armed with nothing but his guitar. Those lessons on the Red Dirt scene brought a new dynamic to his songwriting, and he continues to blend different styles in his music and performances.

Delivering messages through his distinct vocals, powerful performances, and memorable lyrics, Trace wants to build a relationship with each listener. His efforts as an independent artist landed him on the stages in Nashville, TN in 2014, and provided opportunities to open for many national acts including Chase Rice, Randy Houser, Midland, Austin Burke, and Justin Moore.

 

In late 2017, Trace released his first single, "Jesus & Me" which had tremendous success landing the #1 spot on an radio syndication played across the United States.   Following the success of his single, Trace released his first album "Get It Right" in February 2018 which contained 10 original tracks.  He then followed that up with the sultry, blues single, "Hourglass" in Feb 2019, and then wrote and released his first duet, "Words" in April 2019.   Trace's songs have hit multiple independent country charts and playlists worldwide which resulted in him being awarded the 2017 IMN Country Impact Artist, and being awarded the 2018 & 2019 Modern Male Country Artist in the Josie Music Awards.

Welcome to 2021 where the train continues to pick up steam as Trace gears up to announce new music! Stay Tuned...
