Fans began truly getting to know their way around Stoney Creek Records’ Thompson Square with the release of their GRAMMY nominated #1 Platinum+ radio smash, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” a fitting introduction to the Thompsons’ natural chemistry and spirit of buoyant romance. iTunes’ Country Song of the Year (2011) grew meteorically to become the Most Played Song at Country Radio in 2011 (Mediabase) as well as reach the top of the Billboard Heat Seekers Chart.
Things have happened very quickly since then: Thompson Square earned three fan-voted American Country Awards for Single of the Year by a Group, Single of the Year by a New Artist and Music Video of the Year by a New Artist. “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” also earned two GRAMMY nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/ Group Performance of the Year as well as an American Music Award Nomination for “New Artist of the Year.”
One month later, Thompson Square dethroned Sugarland to become the 2012 Academy of Country Music’s “Vocal Duo of the Year,” making Thompson Square the first new duo to win the award in 20 years. Two after that, Thompson Square’s follow-up smash, “I Got You,” earned the duo a fan-voted 2012 CMT Music Award for “Duo Video of the Year.”
Now, with the much-anticipated release of, “If I Didn’t Have You,” the duo’s lead single from its upcoming sophomore album, Thompson Square is nominated for two of the most coveted CMA Awards – New Artist of the Year and Duo of the Year.
