Brothers Osbourne to Open for Thompson Square
August 3, 2012
MANSFIELD, PA— Brothers Osbourne will be the opening act for Thompson Square at Decker Gymnasium on Friday, September 14 at 8 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
TJ and John Osbourne bring a number of influences, ranging from Hank Williams Sr. to Bruce Springsteen, to their performances. The brothers signed with Capitol Records this summer, which is the big break the country duo has been working for.
Thompson Square, the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, and their band have made a quick rise to the top of the country music world with the release of their Grammy nominated number one platinum plus hit Are You Going To Kiss Me Or Not took the country music world by storm.
They won Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Duo of the Year Award this year. In doing so, Thompson Square became the first new country music act in 20 years to take that honor.
Thompson Square was also nominated for three CMT Music Awards in 2012. The video for their single I’ve Got You won Duo Video of the Year.
In 2011, the duo was nominated for 14 industry awards, including an American Music Award nomination for New Artist of the Year.
Thompson Square’s tour is sponsored by ChildFund International (“Change The World...Sponsor A Child”). There will be an information booth set up in the Decker Gymnasium lobby on the night of the concert.
