Thompson Square has the top spot

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 – Thompson Square has their second number one single. The duo of Kiefer and Shawna Thompson went to number one with If I Didn't Have You.

In 2010, they hit number one with Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not.

The Thompsons wrote on Facebook, "Hey y'all "IF I DIDN'T HAVE YOU" went #1 yesterday and we just wanted to say thanks to all our fans and friends for all your support and for making this happen. We wrote this song after the passing of Shawna's father Mickey. Now, exactly one year later on his birthday it went #1."

The Thompsons did not say what chart they topped. Last week, they were ninth of the Billboard Country Songs chart with Florida Georgia Line first with Cruise.

After two respective solo careers failed to catch fire, the Thompsons are now a full-time personal and professional team with a debut record. The lead single and hit, Are You »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
