​​SOUTHERN ROCK and COUNTRY

​​​​JT & The Gunslingers

If you took southern rock mixed with a modern day edginess and add a dash of good ol' Midwest and a bunch of originality, then you've got JT & the Gunslingers, one of the regions  fastest growing bands. ~ Megan Kennedy, Post Bulletin

JT Thompson-Vocals/Guitar/Harp
From small town USA comes the quintessential small town story.  Young man working on a farm playing sports graduates high school and joins the Army.
While serving our country as an Airborne Army Ranger in Special Operations (with 4 deployments over-seas),   JT had a songwriting contract offer from Paramount writers group.  However,  due to his commitment to his country, JT felt that he would be unable to fulfill his contract obligations to the fullest so he passed on signing.

Since completing his military service,  JT has written songs for Scholastic publishing company for audio books and has gotten a lot of interest in his songs from up and coming country artists.
