AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Thompson Square
Song:Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not
Thompson Square is a husband and wife country music duo who made a big splash with their 2010 single Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not. Their second CD will be released next month. Kiefer Thompson is from Miami, OK and Shawna is from Chatom, AL. Both moved to Nashville and then met at a singing competition. As Shawna says, it seems cheesy but it was love at first sight. So they started playing shows together and this led to a record contract with Stoney Creek Records which is the sister label to Broken Bow Records. Their debut CD was produced by Jason Aldean's road band. Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not topped the Country Singles chart and reached #32 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song won the ACA award for breakthrough single of the year. Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not was written by Jim Collins and David Lee Murphy. Both guys were solo artists in the 90s and Murphy was fairly successful. Thompson Square's second CD Just Feels Good will be released Mar. 26, 2013. They are working with the same producers but it appears the duo is writing more of their own songs on this CD. If I Didn't Have You was the first single and it did OK. Here's the video for Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not by Thompson Square.
