Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo Oklahoma City, OK

Reigning Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Vocal Duo of the Year Thompson Square, which consists of Miami, OK, native Keifer Thompson and his wife Shawna, recently performed in disguise at the Chelsea Market  in New York to raise money for a good cause.

The performance was part of’s Tip Cup, a surprise music performance series capturing famous artists playing undercover in unexpected locations on a mission for good to support MusiCares. Artists in disguise play for tips, which Motorola multiplies to $10,000 for helping MusiCares provide a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. Each episode showcases a different musician revealing their true identity at the end of the performance to the shock and delight of passersby. Tip Cup removes the barrier between artist and audience to show how music makes positive change.

Thompson Square last week released their highly-anticipated sophomore album, “Just Feels Good,” featuring the couple’s latest romantic smash “If I Didn’t Have You.”

On Sunday, Thompson Square will defend their ACM vocal duo of the year title as the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas from 7 to 10 p.m. Sunday on CBS.

In addition, Thompson Square will perform tonight after the rodeo action at the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo at State Fair Park. The rodeo begins at 7:30 p.m., with the concert after.

Fellow country artist Chris Cagle, who lives in Marietta, will perform after the 7:30 p.m. rodeo action Saturday night. For more information on the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo, go to
