The Ohio University Performing Arts Series will present country music duo Thompson Square on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.
Husband-and-wife team Keifer and Shawna Thompson received their first taste of mainstream success with the release of the Grammy-nominated "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not." The single spent five consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
In 2011, the duo earned three American Country Awards for Single of the Year by a Duo/Group, Single of the Year by a Breakthrough Artist and Music Video of the Year by a New Artist.
Thompson Square have continued their winning streak, winning the Academy of Country Music's Top Vocal Duo award in 2012 and 2013.
