Thompson Square Working on New Album

thompson square

Husband-and-wife country music duo Thompson Square have been pretty busy the last year – and they’re about to get even busier. Shawna and Keifer have been Tweeting updates from the recording studio this week while working on their second album for Stoney Creek Records. It’s too early to have an idea on how exactly it will sound, or even a title for the album, but the pair did give fans a little teaser with notes for a song “You Don’t Get Lucky That Many Times.” Here’s that picture:

On a blog entry on their official site on March 23rd, they announced that they had all the songs for their new album picked out and just needed to record it this week. They also promised big news about a tour next year for fans, so we can’t wait to hear all about that! The pair are still out on tour with Darius Rucker on Lady Antebellum‘s “Own The Night World Tour”.

ACM Awards: Thompson Square Wins Vocal Duo

Thompson Square

Thompson Square received a huge surprise last night after performing at the ‘ACM Salute to the Military’ concert at the ACM Experience in Las Vegas.

After Keifer and Shawna Thompson completed their set, ACM CEO, Bob Romeo, presented them with the award for ‘Vocal Duo of the Year” …  a day early!

Thompson Square is the first duo besides Brooks and Dunn or Sugarland to win the ACM for ‘Vocal Duo’ since 1991. Since that time, Brooks & Dunn have won the ‘Vocal Duo’ award 16 times. The reigning duo winners, Sugarland, took home the trophy for 2010 and 2008. (In 1998 and 1999, the Dixie Chicks won the award when the category was combined with both duos and groups.)

While accepting the award, the duo was overcome with emotion:

Keifer : “It’s been a long, long road. This is one of the greatest nights of our lives. It’s hard to talk when you’re crying.”

Shawna: “This is a very bittersweet moment for me. More sweet than bitter. My dad passed away a month ago. This is for my dad.”

You can watch the video below of Shawna and Keifer accepting the award…

VIDEO: $#*! Thompson Square Says

thompson square

Let’s face it:  Lots of people have tried to make a “$#*! (Fill In The Blank) Says” video.  Most of them fail.  Miserably.

Then there’s Thompson Square.

If you’re needing a great laugh, then watch the video below.  Keifer and Shawna Thompson not only nail this, but they set the bar extremely high for any other country (or non-country)act to top.  We’re talking Mt. Everest high.  Really.  T2 is too funny.

But don’t take my word for it.  Be the judge for yourself. Watch the video and then let us know what you think in the comments section:

Thompson Square’s “Glass” Breaks Top 40

thompson square

Thompson Square’s latest single, “Glass,” has broken into the Top 40, appearing at #40 on today’s Mediabase chart.  Rankings aren’t official until the end of the week, but by then you can bet it will have climbed a few more spots.

The song, written by Jon Nite and Ross Copperman, follows two huge releases by T2:  The chart-topping “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?” and the Top 10 hit “I Got You.”   So far it appears “Glass” will be up to the task in following in the footsteps of those two Stoney Creek Records releases.  Time (and the charts) will tell.

“Glass” is certainly getting a spike from last week’s release of the video for song.  The stylish black and white video gives the beautiful ballad a bit of a classic feel.  Judge for yourself below.

Thompson Square Debuts Video For “Glass”

thompson_square

Thompson Square has a special Valentine’s Day treat for us all:  The debut of the video for their new single “Glass.”

The beautiful ballad, which made it’s premiere today on CMT,  is the perfect play for today.  That’s not just because it’s coming to us from the loving husband and wife duo of Shawna and Keifer Thompson.  It’s because of the way the song is handled.  Shawna’s soft and delicate delivery are impactful without having to be forceful.  In addition, by going with black and white, the video has a classic, romanticized feel to it.

“Glass” is the latest release for the Stoney Creek Records recording artists.  It follows the chart-topping (and so far career-defining) “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” and the Top 10 hit “I Got You.”  I predicted earlier (and I still stand by it) that this will be T2’s second number one song.  Time will tell on that.  For now, enjoy the video and Happy Valentine’s Day!
