Thompson Square

Thompson Square isn't a real place, exactly. It's the musical territory staked out by the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, an exciting and unpredictable area where country meets rock, rough meets smooth and one vagabond heart finds a harmonious common ground with another. It's the sweet destination where two journeys end and another one begins. "It's the place where we create our thing, a little fantasyland where we live," Keifer says. ...show more

Thompson Square isn't a real place, exactly. It's the musical territory staked out by the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, an exciting and unpredictable area where country meets rock, rough meets smooth and one vagabond heart finds a harmonious common ground with another. It's the sweet destination where two journeys end and another one begins. "It's the place where we create our thing, a little fantasyland where we live," Keifer says.

And now the rest of us get to discover that magical place, starting with the chart-topping duo's self-titled debut album. Fans began truly getting to know their way around Stoney Creek Records' Thompson Square with the release of their GRAMMY nominated #1 Platinum+ radio smash, "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not," a fitting introduction to the Thompsons' natural chemistry and spirit of buoyant romance. iTunes' Country Song of the Year (2011) grew meteorically to become the Most Played Song at Country Radio in 2011 (Mediabase) as well as reach the top of the Billboard Heat Seekers Chart. Additionally, "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not" spent five consecutive weeks at #1 on the Country Digital Soundscan chart and 12 consecutive weeks as the #1 Country Ringtone.

Things have happened very quickly since then: Thompson Square earned three fan-voted American Country Awards for Single of the Year by a Group, Single of the Year by a New Artist and Music Video of the Year by a New Artist. "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not" also earned two GRAMMY nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/ Group Performance of the Year. In all, Thompson Square was nominated for 14 industry awards in 2011 also including an American Music Award nomination for New Artist of the Year; two 2011 CMA Awards nominations for Best New Artist and Vocal Duo of the Year and two CMT Music Awards nominations. The duo has played to over a million fans in the past year - by both having been rapturously received, as an opening act on superstar Jason Aldean's tour and by packing high-energy shows of their own. ...show less
