About Iaian Thompson
Fort Campbell, KY
I think unconventional would be the word to use to Describe myself. I've been touring now for 4 years, with over 200 a shows a year. All overseas for the troops.
I've spent time in Nashville but found that the industry pretty much wants everything in your wallet before they start trying to make anything of you. I have five children and a wife! They deserve what I earn more than performance and vocal coaches ever will. And still I try.
I've had the opportunity to open for acts such as, Toby Keith, Trace Atkins, Charlie Daniels and Jack Ingram. Plus I've appeared with The Bands, ETS Machinery, Highway 105 and "NUTS!" on Television shows and stations, such as, The Pentagon Channel, The Armed Forces Network, Geraldo at Large (FOX News).
There have been various Radio Performances as well.
So Unconventional, again, is the way I've chosen. It may not be the way most folks "pay their dues" but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I'm a songwriter and musician that just loves to play music. I can't imagine another way to spend my life.
