Thompson Square announced today, on Monday, January 21 that the duo will release a new album, Just Feels Good, on March 26th.
As reigning ACM Top Vocal Duo and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, the husband/wife duo shared the news and gave fans a special sneak preview of their 13-track album cover on CMT Hot 20 Countdown on Saturday morning.
“There are a lot of fun, upbeat songs on this new album. It’s very diverse and kind of all over the map,” said Keifer Thompson in a press release. “The songs on the album are autobiographical and tell the story of our journey over the last few years – an incredible journey that I am still trying to wrap my head around.”
“Only a few years ago we were playing to 5 people a night down on Lower Broadway in Nashville,” added Shawna Thompson. “Over the last couple of years we’ve been blessed to play to crowds of 30,000 people touring with Jason Aldean, Lady A and Luke Bryan. So many of our dreams have come true and it’s so much sweeter because I’ve gotten to share them with not only my husband but my best friend.”
Keifer and Shawna Thompson co-wrote 5 of the 13 songs on the album alongside such heavyweights as GRAMMY Award winner Brett James (“Jesus Take the Wheel”) and GRAMMY nominated songwriter and artist David Lee Murphy (“Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not”).
In touring news, Thompson Square headed out on the road for the opening weekend of Luke Bryan’s sold-out Dirt Road Diaries Tour this past week. It was also announced late last week that Thompson Square will continue with Bryan throughout the tour’s second leg, beginning May 17 in Virginia Beach, VA and ending October 26 in West Palm Beach, FL.
