Several of Thompson’s Idol friends such as Leah Marlene, Ava Maybee, Olivia Love, and Sage took to the comment to praise the pictures. Fans also quickly gushed over the photos in the comments, dubbing the photos “the cutest father, son photoshoot.”
“Beautiful photos! What an amazing journey! Way to being an amazing papa,” one fan wrote, while another added, “He is beyond precious! These pictures are beautiful!!”
The photographer, Lena Webb, also wrote in the comments, saying, “You two have the sweetest connection! ”
Thompson’s son recently appeared in the new music video for his Thompson’s latest release, “Make You Rich,” a tune that was co-written by Jason Nix, Craig Wiseman, and Driver Williams.
The song finds Thompson being thankful for all that he has in life while remembering that no matter how wealthy you become, it’s always important to remain humble and value life’s most simple things.
“I’m from a small town in Eastern Kentucky and didn’t grow up with much,” Thompson previously shared of the track. “I’ve learned to value my friends and family so much more than the materialistic things we can have in life. I joke that I’m just a simple guy. I’ve also learned, even when life is tough, the more you give, and the more you love, the richer you are, and that is the whole meaning behind ‘Make You Rich.’”
“Be a better man than the old man was / Give a damn when nobody else does / Love your woman like you’re paid to / Like you ain’t afraid to / Like she was made for you / Be a good friend when a good friend needs it / Have a little faith when no one believes it / When it comes to love I’ll tell you this / You’ve got to give it like the givens gonna make you rich,” Thompson sings on the track’s chorus.
Thompson filmed the music video for the tune in his hometown of Louisa, Kentucky. The clip finds Thompson wandering the streets where he grew up and seeing his name emblazoned on buildings throughout the small town. As the clip concludes, He and his son are seen walking through a field hand in hand sharing some quality time together as Thompson sings the tune.
The Kentucky native dedicated his Idol journey to his son, often sharing, “I want my son to see that I am chasing my dreams, and I want him to know he can chase his too. I want to give my son a better life.”
Throughout Thompson’s time on American Idol, the “One Day Tonight” singer has credited his son as his reason to keep moving forward on his Idol journey.
“He’s my exact reason for doing this. I mean he is my motivation for all of it. He’s the thing I think about all the time and why I really wanna do this,” Thompson told Music Mayhem earlier this year.
2023 Music Mayhem Artist to Watch rang in the New Year with a massive concert alongside Chase Matthew, which marked Thompson’s first arena show to date.
“What a freakin way to end the year!! First arena show, when I seen all those lights I could’ve cried,” Thompson wrote. “Thank you all for such a great year, I seriously can’t say it enough. You guys have changed my life forever and I’m forever grateful for all of you!! Love y’all!! See y’all in 2023!!!”
