A reviewer for described a recent Thompson Square concert this way:

“From the more lively ‘I Got You’ that introduced the show to the sweet and tender ballad ‘If I Didn’t Have You’ the couple holds the entire audience, from toddlers to couples old enough to be their grandparents, in the palm of their hands, telling their love story in song just as if the crowd was watching a full-length motion picture.

“Add into the mix a couple of songs written as a tribute to the fans ‘Here’s To Bein’ Here’ and ‘That’s Why We Roll,’ the playful ‘Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About’ and several crowd favorites, including ‘Glass,’ ‘I Can’t Outrun You,’ ‘Getaway Car’ and the encore, the second most-played song on country radio in 2011, ‘Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,’ the energy, passion and talent of the duo and their band provides one of the most entertaining live shows around – the kind you leave wondering when they’ll be playing near you again.”
