Thompson’s Idol cohort, HunterGirl, will be making an appearance at the same time. 

Those who have access to Fan Fair X (a ticket is required), can line up to meet the American Idol alums at Booth #250. 

The news comes after Thompson and HunterGirl reunited at The Bluebird Cafe earlier this week. 

While there, Thompson performed an acoustic rendition of his debut single, “One Day Tonight,” during a writer’s round that featured Lady A’s Charles Kelley as well as Emily Weisband, Steven Lee Olsen and Jimmy Robbins, who produced his debut single.

On Wednesday (June 8), the Kentucky native took to social media to share a photo from the evening as well as a clip of him performing the tune.

“Honored to sit on a stage and sing #onedaytonight with these legendary people at the famous @bluebirdcafetn,” Thompson wrote. 

The performance marked Thompson’s live debut at the historic Music City venue. 

Co-written by Jared Griffin, Trannie Anderson, and Brett Sheroky and produced by Jimmy Robbins, “One Day Tonight” showcases Thompson’s signature raspy vocals alongside pop/country vocals.

“I fell in love with ‘One Day Tonight’ as soon as I heard it, just by the sound of the melody,” Thompson previously shared. “The lyrics are beautiful, the song has so much meaning and it is also so catchy! Can’t believe I get to sing it, to be honest, it blows my mind. I hope so many people love it just like I did when I first heard it!”

“One Day Tonight” finds the former construction worker singing about his lover and how she dreams about their future together while sipping on wine.

“She wants a wedding in September/ Save up all winter/ Spend our summers in a fix ‘er upper in Denver/ She wants a girl and a boy/ And a old dog named Ole Roy Lord I hope this old boy can give her that life/ So go on girl/ Pour a glass of wine/ And dream aloud, talk about/ One day tonight,” he sings on the chorus. 

Noah Thompson performed the song on the American Idol finale where he was crowned the winner of Season 20.
