Country on the River to Benefit Operation Toop Aid

OperationTroopAid_logo_lrg

Country On The River, a multi-day music festival taking place in Iowa on June 20 – 21 and Wisconsin on August 7 – 9, has named Operation Troop Aid as the official charity.

The Iowa festival will feature performances by Gary Allan, Bret Michaels, Montgomery Gentry, Gretchen Wilson, Thompson Square, Tracy Lawrence, Lonestar and Joe Diffie. The Wisconsin festival will feature performances by Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Tracy Lawrence, Kix Brooks, Thompson Square, Sawyer Brown, Dustin Lynch, Parmalee and Trick Pony.

“We are very honored to have Operation Troop Aid with us at Country On The River. The support they bring to our troops is invaluable. Country On The River is committed to the Troop Aid cause and we fully support their efforts. We look forward to having Operation Troop Aid in both Iowa and Wisconsin,” says festival organizer Scott Sheckler.

Since its inception, Operation Troop Aid has garnered the support of music celebrities across multiple genres, from KISS to Toby Keith and Cheap Trick to Charlie Daniels. Operation Troop Aid’s mission is to make a positive difference and inspire deployed U.S. service members by letting them know America stands with them. Operation Troop Aid provides care packages and bill assistance with revenue generated through professional concert promotions, entertainment initiatives and public financial generosity.

In addition, Operation Teddy Bear, which started in 2012 as an initiative of Harris Jewelry, continues in support of our military, both at home and abroad through the sale of uniformed teddy bears. Teddy Bears representing all branches of the military can be purchased for $15.00 at www.operationtroopaid.org or www.mybuddybears.com. To date, Operation Teddy Bear has raised over $100,000 to help Operation Troop Aid, a 501(c)3 organization, send care packages to deployed personnel and sponsor events for military families and communities.

Thompson Square is “Testing the Water”

Thompson Square

This week, multi-platinum selling duo Thompson Square released its new single “Testing the Water” to U.S. Country Radio. The fun-filled, frolicking splasher embodies the carefree sound and spirit of summer in the “holler,” including a memorable, double-entendre hook soon to become an anthem at swimming holes everywhere.

“Testing the Water,” written by hit songwriters Luke Laird, Shane McAnally and Hillary Lindsey, is the third single from Thompson Square’s sophomore album, JUST FEELS GOOD, and the follow-up to the #1 “If I Didn’t Have You” and Top 5 “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About.”

Two-time ACM and CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” Thompson Square also recently added a chart-topping record half a world away to its growing list of accolades when the duo’s song “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About” reached #1 on Australia’s Official Country Airplay Chart, powered by The Music Network.

“We feel very honored to be a part of Australian country music history,” said Keifer Thompson. “We just left Australia and fell in love with it. This makes it even better. A huge thanks for country radio and all of our fans down under. Hope we get to see you again soon. “

Thompson Square recently took its 2014 JUST FEELS GOOD TOUR to fans and military bases across Australia and Asia. The husband/ wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson is featured on the cover of NASH Magazine, included with the April 28th issue of Country Weekly, as the two discuss their five weeks abroad and connecting with fans half a world away. The issue is on newsstands now.

Thompson Square kicks off its 2014 Just Feels Good Tour tonight in Jackson, CA.

The cross-country tour promises to be a treat for fans. While the completely re-worked show includes 86 moving lights and 18 individual high-definition video screens, the duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson have also managed to create an intimate, interactive concert experience for their fans.

“I don’t think we’ve been this pumped since we’ve been in Nashville. We’ve had some great opportunities over the past couple of years to be on three major tours. Each tour was amazing and we’re grateful to have been a part of them all, but this year we just want to do our own thing and get back to a one show, one band and one great crowd kind of mind set,” says Keifer Thompson.

“We also wanted to showcase more songs off our sophomore album ‘Just Feels Good.’ We made this record for our fans and want to show them our live interpretation of these songs that were so carefully chosen for our second album. We have a lot of surprises and have worked very hard to make this our best tour to-date. We can’t wait to see you on the road this year on the Just Feels Good Tour! You won’t want to miss it,” says Shawna Thompson.

The 2014 Just Feels Good Tour kicks off as the ACM and CMA winning duo’s latest hit “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About” soars into the Top 10 at country radio this week. The second single from the duo’s current album, Just Feels Good, is the follow-up to the #1 smash “If I Didn’t Have You.”

This weekend, CMT Hot 20 Countdown will go behind-the-scenes with Thompson Square at the husband/wife duo’s final rehearsal from a top-secret location in Nashville, giving fans an intimate glimpse into Keifer and Shawna Thompson’s preparations before hitting the road. The episode will premiere this Saturday, Feb. 8th at 11:00 AM ET/ 10:00 AM CT.
