This Week's Milestone
Shawna McIlwain, from Chatom Alabama, and Keifer Thompson, from Miami, Oklahoma, met in a Nashville night spot, where she beat him in a game of pool (her father owned a game room and pool hall). They sang separately at first, then teamed up, doing odd jobs together as well. They spent years honing their craft in Nashville’s honky tonks before landing a deal in 2010. Their second single, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” made them stars, and they would follow with hits like “I Got You” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About.”
