Eric Paslay & Thompson Square are set to take on The Academy this September.
Eric Paslay & Thompson Square have announced a double headline show at The Academy in Dublin on September 6.
With romantically charged No. 1 hits like 'Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not' and 'If I Didn't Have You', multi-platinum international success, two Grammy nominations and honours as Vocal Duo of the Year from both the ACM and CMA Awards, country duo Thompson Square's career has garnered widespread attention.
With their third studio album, Masterpiece, the husband-and-wife team of Keifer and Shawna Thompson is back and at the top of their game, offering up a fresh batch of poetic and extremely personal country music.
Brought together by love and undeniable talent, Keifer and Shawna each moved to Nashville seperately but soon met while competing against one another in a local singing competition. They formed Thompson Square as complete unknowns, taking the country scene by storm with an organic vocal blend that harkened back to the duets of icons like Johnny Cash and June Carter.
Country artist Eric Paslay delivers a powerful punch as a renowned, platinum-selling, hit songwriter and dynamic performer. Paslay has celebrated five No. 1 hits, including 'Even If It Breaks Your Heart' (Eli Young Band), 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night' (Jake Owen), 'Angel Eyes' (Love & Theft), 'Rewind' (Rascal Flatts) and 'Friday Night', the smash lead single from his critically acclaimed self-titled debut album.
The Temple, Texas native has earned numerous songwriter award nominations including GRAMMY's Best Country Song, ACM's Song of the Year twice and the CMA Song of the Year for 'Even If It Breaks Your Heart'.
Eric was also honoured with GRAMMY nomination as an artist in 2016 for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for 'The Driver' a collaboration with friends Charles Kelley and Dierks Bentley.
