Thompson Square video for If I Didn’t Have You will premiere on CMT on Valentine’s Day
The new video from reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Thompson Square, “If I Didn’t Have You,” will world premiere this Valentine’s Day on CMT.
Directed by Brian Lazzaro, the video was shot in an abandoned hospital wing, with no heat, amid freezing weather conditions and a grueling dawn to midnight shooting schedule in which Keifer and Shawna both performed and acted in the starring roles. Like the single, the video asks the heart-wrenching question: What would we do if we were faced with the possibility of the most important person in our lives leaving us?
“If I Didn’t Have You” is the lead single from Thompson Square’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, Just Feels Good, in stores on March 26. The single, which soared into the Top 15 on Billboard’s Hot Country Airplay Chart today, is available now on iTunes: http://smarturl.it/IfIDidntHaveYou
Thompson Square will also host CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan’s Valentine’s Day Special on February 14th.

Country music’s biggest breakout act of the last 2 years, husband and wife duo Thompson Square pounded the pavement for 15 years in the music industry before landing a record deal with Benny Brown’s small independent label Stoney Creek Records (sister label to indie Broken Bow Records and home to Jason Aldean). Since that day, Thompson Square has earned over 25 awards show nominations – including 2 GRAMMY nods – and made music history when it was awarded both the 2012 ACM Top Vocal Duo and 2012 CMA Vocal Duo of the Year.
Thompson Square’s breakthrough hit “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” is nearing Double Platinum sales status, was the #1 Digital Soundscan Single for 5 weeks straight, the #1 Country Ringtone for 12 consecutive weeks and was iTunes 2011 Country Song of the Year. Thompson Square’s whirlwind 2011-2012 saw them on national tours supporting Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum as well as gracing the stages of The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Conan, Fox & Friends, FOX’s All American Concert Series, the 45th Annual CMA Awards and CMT’s Artists of the Year special. Thompson Square ended 2011 as Billboard’s #1 New Country Artist in terms of digital sales and the #6 New Artist across all genres. Follow-up hits include the award winning infectious, “I Got You,” (#6) and the critically-lauded power ballad, “Glass” (#15). The duo’s latest smash from its forthcoming sophomore album, “If I Didn’t Have You,” marked Thompson Square’s highest first-week sales of its career.
Thompson Square is touring with Luke Bryan’s Dirt Road Diaries Tour through October 2013.
