– Thompson Square has a new record deal, signing with Reviver Entertainment, the duo announced today.
The husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson released the disc "Masterpiece" last year. They are best known for their 2X-PLATINUM number 1 hit "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not" and "If I Didn't Have You."
"Masterpiece" was inspired by the birth of their son Cooper in 2016.
"We have found a group of like-minded people who are as passionate about our music and career as we are," said the duo in a statement. "David, Gator and Bob have a vision that is exciting and motivating, and we cannot wait to get to work. We're looking forward to this next chapter, and we couldn't be surrounded by a better collection of talented and tenured individuals."
"Thompson Square has written and recorded a brilliant project in 'Masterpiece,'" said Reviver Records President Gator Michaels. "In addition to being incredibly talented, Keifer and Shawna are wonderful people. We couldn't be more proud to have them join our family at Reviver Entertainment."
The Thompsons recently released a music video for the project's title track. Shot and produced by Evan Kaufmann and filmed at the Coleman Theatre in Keifer's hometown of Miami, Okla., the video captures the story of the Thompson family history - complete with home videos - intertwining the tale with an intimate live performance of the track.
Reviver's roster includes David Lee Murphy, Big & Rich, Johnny Cash and John Carter Cash.
The duo also wrote a children's book, "Time to Get Dressed." Born from warm-hearted memories of the couple's daily ritual with Cooper, and the song Keifer would sing to help him through it, the lesson book was illustrated by Ana Patankar.
