Husband/ wife duo Thompson Square’s star continues to rise as the couple’s latest single, “If I Didn’t Have You” soared to #1 yesterday on both the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and the Country Aircheck/ USA Today chart, powered by Mediabase.
The duo’s second #1 accomplishment is especially poignant for Keifer and Shawna Thompson because “If I Didn’t have You” was co-written by the duo about the love between Shawna’s mother and father, in the wake of her father’s passing from cancer last year. The #1 accolades also fell on a date very special to the duo:
“Writing your first number one is an amazing goal to reach. Writing your first number one song inspired by the loss of your Dad and having it go number one on his birthday is a gift straight from heaven,” says Shawna Thompson. “We want to thank all of our fans and country radio for making this possible.”
The commanding, fast-paced ballad has sold nearly 600,000 singles to-date for the Stoney Creek Records duo. “If I Didn’t Have You” showcases the undeniable strength and versatility of both Keifer and Shawna Thompson’s voices. While the fiercely swelling instrumentation embodies life’s heartaches, Thompson Square’s vocals exude a powerful tenderness that clearly expresses their love for one another.
Co-written alongside Jason Sellers and Paul Jenkins, “If I Didn’t Have You” was penned by the same foursome that collaborated on Thompson Square’s award-winning hit single, “I Got You.” Watch the official music video HERE.
Thompson Square’s latest #1 single comes on the heels of the duo’s second consecutive ACM win for Vocal Duo of the Year earlier this month in Las Vegas and amid critical praise for it’s recently released sophomore album, Just Feels Good, which marked the highest album debut of the duo’s career.
The duo is currently touring with Luke Bryan on his Dirt Road Diaries Tour through October 2013. For more information, tour dates and all the “T2 goins on” visit thompsonsquare.com
