THOMPSON SQUARE LIGHT UP THE HOLIDAYS AT 96TH ANNUAL NATIONAL CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING


COUNTRY DUO PERFORMS A CLASSIC MEDLEY OF "WINTER WONDERLAND" AND "LET IT SNOW"

HEARTWARMING FIRST CHILDREN'S BOOK "TIME TO GET DRESSED" OUT NOW

NASHVILLE, TENN. (December 3, 2018) — MULTI-PLATINUM, 2X Grammy nominees THOMPSON SQUARE brought a big dose of holiday cheer to the nation’s capital Sunday night, appearing at the 96th annual National Christmas Tree Lighting in Washington, D.C., to perform a classic medley of cherished Christmas tunes.
 
Taking place on the Ellipse in President’s Park, the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony is an American tradition which began in 1923 and was broadcast this year on the Ovation and REELZ networks. Co-presented by the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, 2018’s event featured Thompson Square and an array of spirited entertainers performing holiday favorites, plus the official lighting of the National Christmas Tree – a gorgeously-decorated living Colorado blue spruce which can be seen year round in the park.
 
In other Thompson Square news, the duo’s Keifer and Shawna Thompson are the proud authors of their first children’s book, the heartwarming TIME TO GET DRESSED. Perfect for the gift-giving season, the colorful lesson book is available on the duo’s official website and features a sing-able storyline pulled straight from the hitmaking family’s real life. It was inspired by a song Keifer would sing to the duo’s young son each morning, which is also available via www.thompsonsquare.com and all digital retailers.
 
Thompson Square will continue thrilling audiences on the road from Tennessee to Nevada through December 31, delivering hits such as the 2X-PLATINUM #1 smash “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” the GOLD-certified follow-up, “If I Didn’t Have You,” and new songs from their latest album, MASTERPIECE. Including 11 tracks inspired by their own fairytale romance, the couple continues to perfect their acclaimed vocal blend while exploring sounds like soulful R&B, laid-back reggae and thundering hard rock.
