Taylor Swift lost some love in the country music community once she went full-on pop, but she still has the support of many country artists! That includes Thompson Square, who gushed all about Tay when they came in for the HollywoodLife.com podcast. Listen here!
Keifer and Shawna Thompson make up the country music duo, Thompson Square, and since Taylor Swift, 26, was the opening act on their tour with Ty Herndon years ago, they’ve literally watched her grow up into the huge megastar she’s become.
“To see that and her now, she’s like Elvis,” Keifer gushed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY when the married couple stopped by our podcast. “It’s great music, whether it’s pop or not. It’s what she wanted to do. And she did it.”
Keifer admitted that Taylor gets a “bad rap” in the country music community, but still insisted that the 26-year-old is “one of the best we’ve ever had.” Clearly, which he pointed out, he and his wife are “fans.” LISTEN TO OUR FULL INTERVIEW WITH THOMPSON SQUARE HERE.
Thompson Square came by to talk all about their new single, “You Make It Look So Good,” which is an absolute jam. “We were pitched this song by four great songwriters in Nashville,” Keifer explained. “It was kind of weird because we were the only ons who heard the song after they wrote it. After they wrote it, it went from a male demo to a duo. They were like, this is a Thompson Square song, and they couldn’t have been more right. After they pitched it to us, we were like, ‘Yes please!’ It just fired on all cylinders for us.”
We also got an intimate performance of the new hit, which you can watch above. It’s pretty AMAZING!
