Country Duo’s Drive Home Turns Into Terrifying Nightmare

Husband and wife Keifer and Shawn Thompson had been performing country music for eight years before they finally scored a record deal in 2010. Named Thompson Square, the duo earned their first number one hit that same year, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not.”

A string of more chart hits followed, including “Glass” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About,” along with another number one, “If I Didn’t Have You.” They’ve only released two albums so far, but their upcoming album seems poised to bring some more chart hits their way. In fact, it already has.

While no specific details are known about Thompson Square’s third studio album, the duo has released two singles off of it. The first was “Trans Am,” which made its way into the Top 50 on the charts. “You Make It Look So Good” is the group’s current single, and it also found a place in the Top 50.

In between the release of the two songs, Thompson Square welcomed their first child on January 24, 2016. Since then, the duo has been enjoying every moment they get to spend with their son, named Rigney Cooper Thompson.

As if they didn’t have enough on their plate already, Thompson Square is currently on tour across the U.S. They have shows scheduled throughout March, and will travel everywhere from Kansas to Ohio. But after what happened to them on Wednesday (March 1), we’re sure they’re feeling a little weary about hitting the road again.

The duo had a bit of a scare on Wednesday evening, as they shared in a Facebook post. They were on their way back home from New Orleans that day when their tire blew out and was ripped to shreds. What made the incident even more frightening was the fact that they were driving over a bridge at the time that it occurred.

That got us a little closer to the edge than I ever want to be again,” read the caption to some photos showing the damage to the tire. Another photo shows just how close they were to the edge of the bridge at the time.

God was watching out for us today driving home from New Orleans. We had a major blowout on the Lake Pontchartrain bridge…

Thankfully, neither Keifer or Shawna were hurt, and their show for Thursday night (March 2) is set to go on as scheduled. The two realize just how lucky they are, writing, “God was watching out for us today driving home from New Orleans.

We’re so glad that they’re both okay! We wish Thompson Square safe travels for the remainder of their tour.
