Oh couples, they say the darndest things! Shawna and Keifer Thompson of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Thompson Square[/lastfm] were in a fantastic mood when they sat down for an interview at Downtown Hoedown. They revealed a few funny little stories about each other, in a way that only a married couple can!

Keifer answered “Probably about 8 good minutes!”
When Shawna was asked what brings on the stank eye she said, ”There are so many things… I know on stage the other night I was talking and he talked over top of me, I definitely gave him the stank eye on that one.”
Keifer interrupted with a funny little story about Shawna. While she’s a talented singer she is apparently less than talented when it comes to sewing. Keifer explained “She said I’d like to sew, I’d like to start sewing I was like alright anything she wants to do, I’m a good husband, I’ll go out and get it. So I went and bought her this nice sewing machine… that would be awesome if you made all my shirts, all one-offs no one else has got it. She bought this snake-skin material, she was going to make a shirt out of snake-skin, God knows why. She got like the front and the back, no arms, no neck, a big hole in the back, it’s like a snake-skin poncho. That was the beginning and the end of her sewing career.”
The duo is happy with the positive response to their latest music. Keifer explains “When you’re making a record and trying to pick songs it’s a scary, scary situation. You try to do what you feel in your heart is right and what you like and what you’d be proud of and you just hope somebody connects to it.”
Thompson Square nominated for 2011 CMT USA Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not!”
