ACM Winners Thompson Square Begin Work On New Album

Straight from an ACM Vocal Duo of the Year win, Thompson Square admitted they are happily working on a brand new album.

“It’s in the birthing stages right now. We’re writing, and we’re recording a lot of demo vocals right here on this very bus,” Keifer Thompson told The Boot before their show in Los Angeles with Lady Antebellum. The sophomore album, though, will be a lot different than their first self-titled album from early 2011.

“There will be a lot more energy,” Shawna admits. “We’re finding out after being on the road for two years, doing these big arena shows, that you’ve got to go out here and rock.” But don’t expect an album full of high-energy dance country hits. As their latest single “Glass” shows, fans grow really attached to the intimacy between the married duo. “We learned from all this touring that people like to see an element of intimacy on stage between the two of us,” Keifer interjected.

Thompson Square are currently on tour with Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker and both superstar country acts have been more than accommodating to the ACM winners. “We’d done some shows with Darius [Rucker] before and he was unbelievably welcoming to us,” says Shawna. “As for Lady Antebellum, they have been amazing, too … as they always are. They’ve given us free reign of whatever we need, we can use the whole stage. “
