“If I Didn’t Have You” is a commanding, fast-paced ballad which equally showcases the undeniable strength and versatility of both Keifer and Shawna Thompson’s voices. While the fiercely swelling instrumentation embodies life’s heartaches, Thompson Square’s vocals exude a powerful tenderness that clearly expresses their love for one another.
Written by Keifer and Shawna Thompson alongside Jason Sellers and Paul Jenkins, “If I Didn’t Have You” was penned by the same foursome that collaborated on Thompson Square’s awaring-winning hit single, “I Got You.”
Thompson Square will compete for “Duo of the Year” and “New Artist of the Year” this Thursday at the 46th Annual CMA Awards, broadcast live on ABC from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville beginning at 8pm ET/ 7pm CT.
