Husband and wife country duo Thompson Square won the first major award of the night at the 2013 ACMs on Sunday night (April 7), taking home the honors for Vocal Duo of the Year.

The country-pop duo consisting of Keifer and Shawna Thompson have scored hits including 'Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not' and 'Glass.' They were elated to receive the award -- especially in a category that also included Big & Rich, Florida Georgia Line, Love and Theft and Sugarland.

"We want to thank God for this amazing reality that we live in right now," Keifer said, also thanking country radio and the fans for their support.

Shawna expressed her gratitude to Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. "Thanks so much for believing in us and taking us out on your tours," she gushed.

In a cute aside, both performers thanked their parents, who were watching at home.
