Thompson Square Testing New Waters (11/21/14)
It seems like 2014 has been a year of transition for Thompson Square. The duo released the singles "Testing the Water" and "I Can't Outrun You" to lukewarm response, with both songs failing to dent the US Hot Country Songs chart, and peaking at numbers 55 and 52, respectively, on the Country Airplay Chart.
Since then, the husband-wife duo has been busy changing its game plan while working on their already-in-progress third studio album. It marks the first time they've been able to shut down completely to work on a record, and Keifer Thompson recently said he and wife Shawna are "changing everything up and growing and writing." He noted that their next project is likely to be a big change from anything fans have already heard from Thompson Square.
"Thank goodness we've had two albums and several hits under our belt now," Thompson said in a recent interview. He noted that as artists Thompson Square loves to push boundaries and realizes they can't keep doing the same thing in order to have continued success. That said, they are aware of the risks of venturing into new musical territory, and have enlisted the help of noted Nashville producer (and mega-hitmaker) Dan Huff to guide them.
Along with other big names such as Lady Antebellum, Kacey Musgraves, and Hunter Hayes, Thompson Square recently contributed a track to the Nicolas Sparks penned film "The Best Of Me." The soundtrack was released on October 7th.
Husband-wife duo among country's hot young talent (Updated January 30, 2013)
"Are you gonna kiss me or not?" is normally a question reserved for boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives or significant others. For the duo known as Thompson Square, it happened to be the song title to their very first Number One hit, and first for Stoney Creek Records in the summer of 2010. It's been uphill ever since for the husband-wife combo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, who are blazing a trail among the hot young talent in country music.
The initial meeting of Keifer and Shawna even sounds like a country song. They both relocated to Nashville the same week, met at a singing competition at the Nashville Nightlife and nearly fell in love at first sight. Both briefly pursued solo careers before joining forces as a duo, creating a buzz for more than their music. Shawna's ever-changing hairstyles (Updo? Sideswept? Top Knot?) and Keifer's newsboy cap complimented their 'unconventional' image – something that was left untouched by the label as they worked radio tours and industry circles.
Though Thompson Square's debut single was "Let's Fight," (off the eponymous album released in Feb. 2011) it was the 180° reverse with "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?" that suddenly had them sitting at the top of the charts. They captured the Academy of Country Music award for top Vocal Duo in the spring of 2012, toured with superstar Jason Aldean and were hard at work in the studio making new music the rest of the year.
"Just Feels Good," their sophomore album, is due on March 26, 2013. The lead single, "If I Didn't Have You," is the fastest-rising single of the duo's career, and tells the story of two people who rely on each other to get through the daily trials and tribulations of life. They filmed the music video on January 16, and began the "Dirt Road Diaries Tour" with Luke Bryan the very next day.
