Being together 24/7 key to success for country music duo

Being with your spouse day in and day out may seem like a nightmare for some, but Grammy-nominated duo Thompson Square wouldn’t want it any other way.  “She and I tried to have separate careers and we were both really just miserable because we weren't together,” Keifer Thompson says of his wife Shawna.  “We fight like anybody else, and we do a really good job at that!  The music is the great equalizer…we are best friends.  What could be better than living your dream with your best friend?”

The couple is currently on tour promoting their sophomore album “Just Feels Good.”  Two songs on the CD are about their life on the road.  “That's Why We Roll” is just about the fans, that's the reason why we wake up every morning,” Shawna explains.  “We get up on the bus at midnight and we drive to the next town.  And “Here's To Being Here” is also kind of like a cheers to you thanking for coming out to see us, because you are what fuels the fire, that's in our hearts to play music.”
