Rock the Rapids announces opening-night headliner
Rock the Rapids has announced the duo that will perform on opening night of the three-day festival, which runs from Aug. 20-22.
Thompson Square, which is comprised of husband and wife duo Keifer and Shawna Thompson, turned heads in the country music scene in 2010 with their hit “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not?” The band also had a top 10 hit with “I Got You.”
Their second No. 1 single came last month with “If I Didn’t Have You,” off of their second album “Just Feels Good.”
Their new single, “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About” was just released to country radio.
Two more country performers will be announced on July 22 for the Aug. 20 date.
Also performing at Rock the Rapids are Daughtry and Lifehouse, on Aug. 21, and ZZ Top with special guest Kenny Wayne Shepherd, on Aug. 22.
Tickets for Thompson Square go on sale Thursday, June 27, at 10 a.m. and tickets for the other performance dates already are on sale.
Rock the Rapids is presented by Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort.
