It paid off as he won 2014 Georgia Country Male Artist of the Year and 2014 Georgia Overall Artist of the Year. Influenced by writers such as Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson and Mo Pitney, Thomas chose to go against the grain to create lyrics that are honest and relatable.
The music he is creating is country to the core and his soulful delivery with a vintage feel puts you in his story reflected in every song he writes.
His most recent EP and his new direction for his songwriting skills have quickly garnered the attention of many in the industry, allowing him the opportunity to open for such acts as Chris Stapleton, Trace Adkins, and Joe Diffe. Thomas’ goal is growing his fan base nationwide and interacting with as many of his fans as possible.
He is already a local favorite and can’t wait to take his music across the country to the people who support his music, his story and his journey through the music he loves.
Thomas Fountain is heading to the studio this winter to release his second EP insuring his fans of real, raw, rootsy country music.
