Thompson Square is Keifer and Shawna Thompson.
The husband and wife couple have been together for over a dozen years. They’ve worked odd jobs together. They’re been singing and performing for years. Their love of music keeps them going strong. Now the pair is becoming famous in the country circles with two huge country hits and a string of successful appearances on national stages.
Even as the duo’s latest single is still climbing the charts I thought I’d take a guess at what might be the next single. My guess is My Kind of Crazy (not to be confused with Brantley Gilbert’s song of the same title)…
My Kind of Crazy – Thompson Square
Most bands become “overnight successes” or seem to “come out of nowhere”. It can seem like that to the country audience, but really there is a lot of work that goes into creating a country star.
Just ask Thompson Square. In a recent video interview for Walmart’s Soundcheck Series the husband and wife pair gave some insight into their struggling artist story. It turns out they’re been playing shows and been busy getting turned down by labels for years and years. Things never worked out until one day the right people came to see them play a show (and Thompson Square even charged the record label execs a cover charge!). The rest became history.
Now the duo has a number one song on the charts. Their third single release is heading for the same spot. I Got You is rising even faster than Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not and is already looking at the top ten on the chart. Things are good for Thompson Square and it’ll be interesting to see if they have room for one more single from their debut album.
I Got You is the third single from the album. Let’s Fight was the first single and it only reached the top 60 on the charts. It got their foot in the door, though, and now the band is riding high.
My guess for the band’s next single will be My Kind of Crazy. The duo performed the song a few times for radio stations as you can see from the video above. I’m banking on the fact that the duo thinks highly enough of the song to perhaps push it as the next single.
My Kind of Crazy is a love song. It’s about being so in love with someone that you really are the only two people in the world for each other. You know each other’s little crazy quirks. You laugh at simple inside jokes. You are crazy together, but it works.
If you’re a little goofy you can relate to this song. You and your lover probably have a few of the same quirks. Only you two know where you’re coming from. When you have that connection it’s something special. It’s a great feeling to know you share such intimate feelings for someone else.
This is a great song. I’m thinking it could be a hit.
Chart Estimate: TBD (I’ll guess #10 if it becomes a single)
CML Points: 81/100
