Thompson Square will be taking several days due to doctor’s orders. The duo announced that they will have to reschedule several tour dates in order to allow Keifer Thompson time to recover.
Keifer took to Thompson Square’s official website to post the following statement:
“It breaks my heart to tell our fans today that we must cancel our upcoming concert appearances this weekend. What many of you may not know is that I have recently been battling a very serious vocal condition. I was urged by doctors to cancel Thompson Square’s appearances and go on complete vocal rest several weeks ago; however, neither Shawna nor I wanted to disappoint our fans, which we love and respect dearly. So we chose to continue performing our scheduled shows while I remained completely silent offstage in an effort to heal. Unfortunately, at this time, I have been ordered by doctors to take the next step and to cancel this weekend’s shows in an effort to heal internally.”
“Words cannot express how devastated we both are to bring this news to our fans. Our fans are on our minds every moment of every day – you are the reason we’re here and the reason we get to live our dream of making music for a living. We hope that you will understand what a difficult decision this has been and know that we can’t wait to get back out on the road and make it up to you as soon as possible.”

Taylor Swift is expanding her perfume portfolio with a new, more grown-up scent. Taylor by Taylor Swift is a concoction of fruity, floral and woodsy notes, and since she’s attaching her name to it, it truly represents her.
The new fragrance follows her best-selling Wonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted scents, which were named after one of her signature songs. This time out, Swift is slapping her moniker on the fragrance, further branding it and connecting it to her as a person and artist.
“My first two fragrances were more about fairytales,” the ‘Begin Again’ singer confesses. “But this fragrance is more about my own style, so I wanted the name to be more personal.” – TasteOfCountry.com
Love and Theft‘s Stephen Barker Liles is officially off the market. The ‘Angel Eyes’ musician proposed to his longtime girlfriend Jenna Michelle Kennedy on Tuesday (May 28), and she said “yes!”
It was quite the romantic setup. The proposal took place in Fort Myers, Fla., with Liles employing a friend to position cameras so he could film the whole shebang.
“I had one of my closest friends, Justin Ross Ward, drive down and set up cameras,” Liles shares with People of his master plan, which involved some innocent subterfuge. “Jenna and I were planning on a sunset dinner at Fresh Catch Bistro, and I called ahead and told them to say that the table wouldn’t be ready for 30 minutes so that we had to kill some time and walk on the beach.”
