The second installment of WGNA’s Rising Star Country Series took off with out a hitch in Proctors’ stadium-seating styled G.E. Theatre last week. This time out Thompson Square brought their dual intertwining harmonies, single acoustic guitar jams and image-packed lyrics for a terrific set that included their smash Top 10 country hit, “Are You Going To Kiss Me Or Not?”
Married for nearly a dozen years, the collaborative husband-and-wife team of Keifer and Shawna Thompson joked and chatted comfortably with the sold-out audience. Exuding the infectious enthusiasm of two happy kids let loose in a candy store, the duo have worked years at their craft to finally get their big break. “It’s hard to believe that a year ago we were still bar tending down in Nashville,” Shawna told the crowd.
