April 11, 2007, NASHVILLE - Howling Music Group, a division of Grow Music, Inc., is set to release the latest Josh Thompson single, "Sunshine," a re-make of the Jonathan Edwards 1971 classic featuring a cameo vocal from Edwards himself. Thompson, an eighteen-year old pop rocker/singer-songwriter has recently appeared in shows with Teddy Geiger, Brian Littrel of The Backstreet Boys and the Clay Aiken release party and is among the Nashville-based label's debut artists.
"I've always loved the song," Thompson says. "And to have Jonathan Edwards himself sing it with me was a complete thrill."
The song marked Edward's first entry to the top of the charts when it reached Billboard's number four position in 1971.
"It's actually a war protest song," notes Edwards. "I had been treated so roughly in a draft board medical inspection that I ended up in the hospital. The song came to me there--'Some man's gone and tried to run my life, don't know what he's asking'--that was this war machine trying to force us into a terrible situation."
The concept was broached by Howling Music Group's President, David Grow. "I've always loved "Sunshine," Grow remarks. "I've always thought of it as being very hopeful and uplifting. We were thrilled Jonathan wanted to appear on Josh's version of his classic tune."
The song is set to be released to nationwide radio April 22 and will coincide with a tour in select markets. Listen to the song.
