North Carolina singer-songwriter Paige King Johnson will open for Nashville recording artists Thompson Square on Saturday, April 15, at The Clayton Center. The show is part of the Center’s See It Live! schedule of events.
King Johnson, known around this area as the musical voice of the Got to Be NC agriculture marketing program, is a three-time Carolina Country Music Awards winner who has a devoted homegrown fan base. But her popularity continues to grow beyond the Harnett County backyard where she grew up. She has shared the stage with chart topping artists such as Kane Brown, Joe Nichols, Scotty McCreery and Neal McCoy and now adds Thompson Square to the list.
The award-winning country duo Thompson Square is known for romantically charged No. 1 hits like “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” and “If I Didn’t Have You.” In the past 10 years, the couple has celebrated multiple award nominations and wins, top 10 tunes like “I Got You” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About,” and multi-platinum status.
With the release of a new radio single – upbeat, country rock ode to their rural upbringings – “Country In My Soul” – Thompson Square reaffirms their penchant for rollicking anthems and wistful, uplifting balladry that fans have come to know and love.
