Thompson Square are rebuilding after a flood destroys their Alabama home.
Country duo Thompson Square are rebuilding their Alabama home after a devastating flood.
A leak from the home’s upstairs bathroom caused ankle-deep water that soaked the home for six days while the couple was away on tour. Personal items like the envelopes that announced the duo as winners of ACM and CMA Awards were ruined by flood waters.
Additional damaged was caused to the home by cleaners who backed their truck into the Thompson’s home and destroyed the front porch.
“What else is next? I’m waiting for lightning to strike,” Keifer Thompson joked in an interview with ABC Radio.
The couple have an overall positive attitude towards the situation and are focused on rebuilding the home they only purchased a year and a half ago.
“One of the guys that came out to help us clean it out, he was like, ‘I can’t believe stuff like this happens to people like Thompson Square!’” Shawna Thompson added, “We’re just normal people like everybody else!”
The flood comes shortly after the band’s tour bus was involved in a car accident in Texas on the way to this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. The duo was not on board, and none of their supporting crew sustained injuries.
While their home is rebuilt, the duo will spend most of the summer on the road. You can find their official tour dates on their website.
