– Thompson Square are number one with their single Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not.
This is the first number one for the husband-and-wife duo off their recently released self-titled debut album.
Billy Currington has been number one the Billboard country song chart with Let Me Down Easy.
"We have dreamed of this moment for many years," said Keifer Thompson. "We are so thankful to country radio and our fans for their support. We have an amazing team behind us at Stoney Creek Records, and their hard work has made a dream come true. It's a pretty awesome feeling."
Shawna said adds, "This is really surreal for Keifer and I. We are so thankful Benny Brown believed in us and gave us a record deal. We will forever relish this memory."
Penned by David Lee Murphy and Jim Collins, the song is now number one on both MediaBase and Billboard charts this week, as well as on Country Aircheck Activator, R&R Indicator and has been at the top for three weeks on the Music Row chart. The R.I.A.A. Certified Gold single has sold more than 750,000 digital singles holding the number one position for two weeks on the Digital Soundscan chart, as well as number one on the iTunes Top Country charts. Equally impressive, the country ringtone has reached the number one spot on the Ringscan chart.

Real-life couple duets carry an honorable tradition in country music. Who could forget the flirtatious sparring of Carter/Cash, the hard-times love of Jones/Wynette or swooning of Hill/McGraw? But rarely does a married couple enter into a musical partnership quite like Keifer and Shawna Thompson, aka Thompson Square. After two respective solo careers failed to catch fire, the Thompsons are now a full-time personal and professional team with a debut record.
