“Hijacking a conference room” is definitely a first for the #DiamondLIVE @ Home concert series.
But Thompson Square was determined to find the best spot to get their livestream up and running.
The husband-and-wife team Keifer and Shawna Thompson took over the Diamond Resorts Facebook page to perform for members and fans during a virtual concert on Thursday, July 9.
The country duo has been on an extended camping trip in Alabama with their son Cooper – who stole the show, making an appearance before his parents launched into a performance of their latest single “Masterpiece.” Keifer explained that he wrote the song while thinking about what he believes is his greatest achievement in life.
“I went out to the back porch and started writing this song, trying to figure out what ‘masterpiece’ meant to me,” Keifer said. “It wasn’t any awards that we had won or any hits that we had, it was definitely having our son.”
The couple also performed their first No. 1 single as songwriters, “If I Didn’t Have You,” before singing a few more of their biggest hits with “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About,” and the song that started it all – “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not.”
Viewers also got an exclusive sneak peek at a new Thompson Square song, “My Grass is Green Enough,” which is so fresh it hasn’t even hit the recording studio yet.
While answering a few questions that were submitted by Diamond members and fans, the couple revealed a bit more about how they first met, their early music inspiration and something they have seen as a positive outcome from the recent quarantine.
“For me, it’s just been a forced slow-down, because things have been crazy for the last 12 years. It’s just go, go, go,” said Shawna. “And also to be able to spend time with Cooper.”
