The Grand Ole Opry returned to Country Radio Seminar for its second straight year last night as it kicked off CRS 2014 at the Opening Night Welcome Reception.  The star-studded line-up included Opry members Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, and Old Crow Medicine Show, along with Thompson Square, Love & Theft, Brandy Clark, Will Hoge, Eric Paslay, Chris Young, and Charles Esten.  The Grand Ole Opry at CRS was sponsored by My Well-Being Powered by Humana and the performances are Powered by Live Nation.

The show that made country music famous transformed the East Hall of the Nashville Convention Center to give the standing room only crowd an authentic taste of the Opry and the Grand Ole Opry House.  The Opry’s signature barn backdrop and iconic microphone set the stage for the two-hour show.

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.

Thompson Square and Luden’s Select Daisy Mallory For “Voices Worth Hearing” Campaign

Daisy Mallory TS

Aspiring singer-songwriter Daisy Mallory was treated to the surprise of a lifetime when award-winning country music duo Thompson Square selected her as a “Voice Worth Hearing” for their new multi-media campaign with Luden’s®, the soothing throat drop loved by voices everywhere.

Keifer and Shawna Thompson surprised Mallory at a rehearsal session in a Nashville recording studio. Mallory was under the impression that she was part of a new project featuring up and coming musicians like herself. The surprise didn’t end there, as Thompson Square then invited the 20-year-old to perform in a private show with them at The Wheel in Nashville, Tenn., the venue where Keifer and Shawna worked side-by-side as bartenders before signing to Stoney Creek Records.

“When somebody has a great voice, you know it within the first few seconds of the song because they make it their own,” said Keifer Thompson. “Shawna and I knew Daisy’s voice was worth hearing from the moment she sang. Her presence and ambition are well beyond her years, and we could not be more excited to share her talents with our fans as she continues in her career.”

Mallory started writing songs and playing the guitar at the age of nine and has been performing live since she was 12-years-old in her hometown of Cave Creek, Ariz. In 2010, Mallory moved to Nashville to pursue her passion for country music full-time.

“I am a huge fan of Thompson Square, and as you can imagine I was incredibly surprised when Keifer and Shawna walked into the studio,” said Mallory.  “Knowing that they saw my video and chose me to be part of the ‘Voices Worth Hearing’ campaign was exciting and humbling. There are so many amazing voices out there, and I can’t believe they chose mine.  I’m so grateful to Shawna, Keifer, Luden’s and everyone else who made this experience possible. It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Luden’s®, the soothing throat drop loved by voices everywhere, is partnering with country music duo Thompson Square on its “Voices Worth Hearing” campaign. Together, Luden’s® and Thompson Square will create exclusive new videos and other content celebrating voices worth hearing for Facebook and other digital channels, giving fans a unique peek behind the scenes of the music world. Luden’s® will release a video documenting Daisy’s rehearsals and performance with Thompson Square as part of the campaign.

Make sure to take a look at the finished video from Luden’s as they take you through Daisy’s journey to being picked for their ‘Voices Worth Hearing” Campaign.  CLICK HERE TO VIEW IT NOW
