Thompson Square Snag the 2012 CMA Award for Vocal Duo of the Year
After Tim McGraw‘s killer performance of ‘One of Those Nights’ at Thursday’s 2012 CMA Awards, Jana Kramer and Jake Owen took the stage to present the award for Vocal Duo of the Year. Big and Rich, Love and Theft, Sugarland, the Civil Wars and Thompson Square were all up for the coveted Vocal Duo of the Year award, but only one pair could take home the trophy.
When Kramer and Owen walked on stage to present the awards, all eyes were on Owen’s very loud leopard print jacket. But luckily, his bold outfit didn’t outshine the award winners! Thanks to a very successful year in country music, vocal group Thompson Square took home the trophy.
It was obvious that Keifer and Shawna Thompson — the husband and wife who make up Thompson Square — were shocked and grateful for the award.
“First and foremost we need to thank the big man upstairs–this is awesome,” Shawna said, with tears in her eyes. Keifer chimed in to relieve his lady by calling the award “awesome” and remembering to thank the band’s label, Stoney Creek.
Before the ‘Glass’ hitmakers left the stage, they paused for a sweet kiss in front of the audience. If there were a “Most Adorable Couple” award, they would definitely be nominated for that, too!
