Here’s another item Shawna Thompson can peel off of her vision board: Thompson Square is nominated for the ACM for Vocal Duo of the Year.
It’s the latest in a long list of honors for husband and wife duo Shawna and Keifer Thompson, who hit the road with Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker starting tomorrow night in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In typical Thompson Square style, the duo is humbled by the honor:
“We were getting ready for Lady A tour rehearsals when we heard the news this morning. We’re so honored to be nominated for an ACM. It’s been almost a year since our debut album came out and the last 365 days have been a whirlwind of dreams coming true. This year is shaping up to be even busier than 2011 and we couldn’t feel more blessed and be more grateful to our fans, Country radio and everyone out there in the industry who has supported us.”
Thompson Square is also in the running for another ACM award: the fan-voted New Artist of the Year. You can still vote for them by clicking here. Voting ends on January 30 and the three semi-finalists will be announced next month.
If that’s not enough, Thompson Square also has two Grammy nominations. They’re up for Country Song of the Year and Country Vocal Performance of the Year for “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not.” And did we mention that their latest single, the touching ballad “Glass,” hits radio next week? Clearly, these are exciting and busy times for T2!
You can see who takes home the Grammys on February 12 on CBS. Then tune in for the 47th Academy of Country Music Awards from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 1, also on CBS. Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton return as co-hosts.
