Platinum-selling country duo Thompson Square is back in the spotlight with their latest single, “Masterpeice,” and new recording contract with Reviver Records.
A beautifully crafted song inspired by their son, Cooper, “Masterpiece” is among the duo’s best work to date and is featured on their third studio album of the same name.
It’s an exciting time for Thompson Square. They recently made the media rounds in New York City where they performed “Masterpiece” and their previous hits like “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” and “If I Didn’t Have You” on Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert Series. On September 2, the husband and wife duo will embark on their first-ever European tour, performing 10 shows in 12 days across the pond.
Country Now recently caught up with Thompson Square’s Keifer and Shawna Thompson to chat about their new music (more on that to come) and have them complete the Country Now Pop Quiz.
Keifer and Shawna revealed a number of things about themselves on the Pop Quiz, including their favorite vacation spots, what they’re completely terrified of and much more. Check it about above.
