Thompson Square Prepare to ‘Continue the Party’ With Jason Aldean This Summer
Thompson Square's Keifer and Shawna Thompson are still riding high from the news that they are holding down the No. 1 song in the country this week with 'Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not.' The tune was locked up at No. 3 for multiple weeks on the charts during Jason Aldean's three-week run at No. 1 with his smash, 'Don't You Wanna Stay.'
Well the two are now gearing up to hit the road with Aldean this summer on his My Kinda Party tour, along with special guest Chris Young. This tour marks the second time that the husband-wife duo will be hitting the road with Aldean, as they opened a string of dates for the country rocker last year.
"We did eight shows with him last year, which was amazing," Shawna tells Taste of Country. "This tour I think we're going to be able to do 40. We're going to be busy this summer. It's going to be awesome."
Shawna is also excited about the tour because it has her performing in her old stomping grounds in Alabama. "We're hitting Orange Beach -- The Wharf -- which is cool, because that's down in my neck of the woods. There will be a lot of family and friends there. It's just going to be a good time. Every time we go out there with Jason and his band, it's just a big family."
"The last time it was just awesome," adds Keifer. "We'll continue that party."
Don't be surprised if you see Thompson Square pop up in smaller clubs or dives post Aldean shows along the trek. "When we did those eight dates with Jason last time, Luke Bryan was out there with him, too," Shawna recalls. "We did some after-show parties at smaller venues. Luke and Jason would come out and hang out with us at those shows ... it was really cool!"
The tour will kick off on July 8 in Milwaukee, Wis. For a complete list of dates for Aldean's My Kinda Party tour, click here.
