Thompson Square has had an AMAZING few years. The reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year have been touring with the HOTTEST country music acts and getting in front of sold out crowds for Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. But according to The Country Vibe next year will be very different for the married duo.
Thompson Square will be doing their own thing…..and touring with a major act is not on the list. They will be doing something much more important with the embark on a USO tour in March.
“We’re extremely excited about (it) because even before we got our record deal we were very interested in going overseas and playing for the troops,” says Shawna, “because my dad was a veteran, Keifer’s dad is a veteran and it was something that was very important to us. So this year we have the time to do it, so we’re gonna go over to Australia and Japan.”
“We actually have turned down a tour here, like a touring tour, to do this because it was just that important to us and we just haven’t had a chance to do it,” adds Keifer. “But next year we’re just doing our own thing for the whole year. We’re not doing a major tour next year.”
Thompson Square is grateful for the opportunities they’ve had to be part of the tours they’ve been on but Keifer says,
“We want to do some stuff on our own and do our own thing and do our own songs our own way and have our own time limits and everything else, so it’s gonna be really exciting. I’m so looking forward to it.”
Recently Keifer and Shawna partnered with Luden’s to celebrate “Voices Worth Hearing.” The campaign will include exclusive new videos and new content on Facebook and other digital channels. It will also give Thompson Square fans a unique peek behind the scenes of the music world.
