Thompson Square Reflect on First ACM Award Win

(Radio.com) Nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year by the Academy of Country Music for the second year in a row, Keifer and Shawna Thompson of Thompson Square have much to celebrate.

Radio.com sat down with the couple recently and learned what it was like for them to win their first ACM Award last year–and what advice they have for current nominees.

"One thing we were told early on being on a small label was that we would never win anything," Keifer explained.

That all changed for the duo last year when they accepted their first ACM for Vocal Duo of the Year. But while Keifer and Shawna are grateful for the win, they said it's not something that motivates them. "It's not the awards that drives what we do. It's the music and the fans and the experience," Keifer said.

"The awards are just the cherry on top," Shawna added. more on this story
