Grammy-nominated country music duo Thompson Square, honored as Vocal Duo of the Year at the ACM and CMA Awards, will perform at the Weinberg Center at 8 p.m. on March 25.
The husband and wife team that includes Thompson Square, Keifer and Shawna Thompson, is known as the pinnacle of modern country romance. Joining forces and falling in love after competing in a local singing contest 20 years ago, the Thompsons began independently producing their love-soaked ballads as they fell in love and rose to fame.
Their 2011 single “Are You Going to Kiss Me or Not” catapulted the couple to stardom. The duo have signed a recording contract and embarked on an international tour with country superstars Lady A and Jason Aldeen. Along the way, Thompson Square released four more singles that hit the Billboard charts, “I Got You”, “Glass”, “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About”, and “If I Didn’t Have You”.
The duo’s return to the music industry following the birth of their son Cooper brings “Masterpiece,” their first independent release since 2011. “Masterpiece” is a chronicle of the couple’s journey to stardom, parenthood and everything in between. . The album is a fusion of country, R&B, pop, power rock and reggae that exemplifies the musicality, diversity and heart that fans have come to love from Thompson Square.
