Thompson Square Give Back in Honduras

Reigning ACM Top Vocal Duo and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Thompson Square took time out of its touring schedule this past week to visit the Honduran village of Lepaterique as celebrity ambassadors of ChildFund International (CFI).

The husband/wife duo, which promotes the organization’s child development work through ChildFund’s LIVE! artist program, traveled to Honduras to meet the 4-year-old child Emerson whom they sponsor through the program. While in Lepaterique, Keifer and Shawna Thompson spent time visiting with Emerson and his family and touring the village’s school system in order to get a first-hand look of ChildFund International’s programs. Thompson Square also took the opportunity to shoot a special CFI video for its recent hit single, “Glass.”

Lady A adds member! Really…well kinda

Hillary’s baby might make its debut on the Lady Antebellum’s forthcoming studio album. “You know, we haven’t made it happen yet, but that’s definitely something we’re going to try to capture (and it was Charles’ idea). I walked into the studio and we had just had the doctor’s appointment and I was like, ‘Here’s the heartbeat, it’s beating 158, really strong and fast.’ And he goes, ‘We have to do something with that!’”

Translation baby is putting dad out of work since they dont need a drummer anymore!

Thompson Square in an accident

Thompson Square were returning home from a show in Pembroke Pines, Fla. on Monday morning (Jan. 28) when their tour bus was blindsided just 20 minutes from home. The married duo shared the news and pictures on Twitter and Facebook. According to one tweet, the accident occurred around 5:30AM. “A woman just didnt (sic) see us early this morning and hit us as we crossed the highway,” a tweet which has since been removed read. “It was pretty foggy.”

It’s not clear who besides Keifer and Shawna Thompson were aboard the bus at the time, or whether anyone was injured. The duo has some time off to recover from the accident — or at the very least get their bus fixed. They’re not scheduled to return to the road as part of Luke Bryan‘s Dirt Road Diaries Tour until Feb. 7 in New York. –

Jake Owen Visits Dad in Hospital

Jake Owen shared a sweet and incredibly personal photo of himself and his dear ol’ dad. The singer surprised his father with a visit, but the reason that both the picture and the visit are super special is because Papa Bear Owen just had cancer surgery.

A surprise visit from his famous son – a new dad himself, since daughter Pearl was born on Thanksgiving 2012- must have made Mr. Owen feel even better as he recovers from the procedure. Nothing like Jake Owen dropping in to brighten anyone’s day, especially when he’s your offspring.

Owen captioned the photo as follows: “Surprised my Dad today at Mayo Clinic in MN.. He had cancer surgery on his neck. Doing great.. My love to all that have dealt with Cancer.”
