's Keifer and Shawna Thompson will probably never have to go to marriage counseling. If they find they're having trouble communicating, they'll just pull up a chair and write a song. But with 13 years of wedded bliss and a shared career that's hot as a firecracker, thanks to such hits as the No. 1 "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not," the reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year is doing just fine. The couple's sophomore album, Just Feels Good
, released March 26, is evidence that instead of closing ranks to deal with the chaos and constant attention surrounding their growing success, they opened up and revealed even more of themselves in song.
"The first album was kind of showing what we sound like," Shawna tells The Boot, "and this album is definitely more about who we are. We wanted it to tell our story and to write about things that are going on in our life right now -- how we met and everything that we've been through over the past three years ... there's a lot to write about."
