With romantically charged #1 hits like “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” and “If I Didn’t Have You,” as well as the energetic, top 5, CMT video award winning “I Got You”, the playful “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About” and “Glass” , multi-platinum international success, and honors as Vocal Duo of the Year from both the ACM and CMA Awards, the Grammy nominated Country duo Thompson Square admit they have been infinitely blessed.
Masterpiece, their latest and most personal project was independently released in 2018. The title track, about their son Cooper is the definition of their masterpiece. An artist’s best work, and what they’d want to be known for when they leave this world. Reflecting on the creative satisfaction behind the duo’s third studio album they explain, “When we’re 80 years old and we look back, we want to be able to say we’re really proud of everything we did.”
Working independently for the first time, the widely diverse Masterpiece arrived at a tipping-point moment for the duo – and found them taking skillful control of their acclaimed musical bond. Brought together by love and undeniable talent, Keifer and Shawna each moved to Nashville separately, but soon met while competing against one another in a local singing competition. They formed Thompson Square as complete unknowns, taking the Country scene by storm with an organic vocal blend that harkened back to the duets of icons like Johnny Cash and June Carter.
