What’s a girl to do?

With Thompson Square’s Keifer Thompson on doctor-ordered voice rest since the end of May, Shawna Thompson found herself with time on her hands. So, what did she do while her hushed husband healed? She brushed up on her cooking skills!

“We’re never able to cook out on the road, being on the bus,” Shawna explained during the No. 1 party for “If I Didn’t Have You,” held Tuesday, June 18. “I think I’ve been doing pretty good with that.”

And while Keifer concurs, he also admits, he only had a choice in the menu if he stayed close by during food-shopping excursions. “She can’t really go far away because she’ll be like, ‘Hey, what about this?’ Then she’s like, ‘Crap,’ and she has to go find me,” he said, laughing.

Both Thompson Square and their fans are anxiously awaiting a return to touring, and an announcement about when that will happen should be made soon. In the meantime, Keifer is learning to sing the right way to avoid future damage. For now, he has avoided the need for invasive surgery.
