Sharing the news about the split, a representative from 19 Recordings revealed to Heavy that “Noah Thompson is no longer on our roster.” The news comes as somewhat of a shock given the label’s ongoing relationship with American Idol. However, after his EP Middle of Nowhere, the singer appears to be looking to take his career in a different direction.

Noah Thompson Shows Off His New Ride

One of those transitions happened to be purchasing a stellar Harley Davidson motorcycle. Posting a picture on Instagram, fans warned Thompson about the dangers of the road. Comments included, “Be careful! People don’t watch out for motorcycles. I got rid of mine for that very reason. Well that and I liked to go wide open!” Another person added, “Rode Harleys for 40 years…lost many many many friends from no helmet laws. Are they aggravating….yes!! Are they going to protect your head?…a hell of a lot more than not wearing one. You gotta put your sweet boy in front of what you want or like. How will you feel in 20 years when he wants to ride without one??? You’ll worry yourself to death I promise. Pleaseeeee Be smart!! We know you are!! Proud for your success!! And it is a sweet Harley!!”

While looking to explore the open road, it appears that Thompson’s future is wide open as he expands his legacy in music.
