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 as well as American Music Award and Teen Choice Award nods – and made music history when it was awarded awards from both the ACM and CMA for “Vocal Duo of the Year” in 2012. Thompson Square was awarded its second consecutive ACM Award for Vocal Duo of the Year in April 2013.
Thompson Square’s breakthrough hit “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” has surpassed two million in sales, 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!, CBS This Morning, Conan, Fox & Friends, FOX’s All American Concert Series, the 45th Annual CMA Awards, CMT’s Artists of the Year special, NBC’s The Better Show special and the MTV/VH1/CMT “Best of 2012” concert celebration. Thompson Square ended 2011 as Billboard’s #1 New Country Artist in terms of digital sales, the #6 New Artist across all genres and the winner of three American Country Awards.
Follow-up hits include the award winning infectious, “I Got You,” (#6 and the 2012 CMT Music Awards’ “Duo Video of the Year”) and the critically-lauded power ballad, “Glass” (#15). The duo’s latest smash, the award-nominated #1 “If I Didn’t Have You,” from the duo’s sophomore album JUST FEELS GOOD marked Thompson Square’s highest first-week sales of its career and has now surpassed half a million in digital sales.
The duo is currently touring with Luke Bryan on his Dirt Road Diaries Tour through October 2013.http://www.countryschatter.com/2013/08/thompson-square-take-over-plaza-for-fox-friends-concert-on-friday-aug-23/Press ReleaseTV Appearance6th avenue,american music award,broken bow records,music history,rare opportunity,Thompson Square,wife duo
