Nashville-based Thompson and her husband / producer / songwriter partner Sam Gay are riding a wave of success on Australian Country Radio with 14 singles, including 10 #1s. The couple inked a sub-publishing agreement with ORiGiN Music Publishing in Sydney, Australia last Spring for their Connected at the Hit Songs and BoatPony Music catalogs. In addition to their hits in Australia, Thompson’s and Gay’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Reba McEntire, Little Texas, Montgomery Gentry, Ricky Van Shelton, and Jo Dee Messina, among others. Individually and collectively, their songs have been used in such films as Dr. Dolittle 3 and the Lifetime Christmas movie, Every Other Holiday. Gay also wrote and produced the soundtrack for the film, Dogs On The Inside. Thompson and Gay are also the music behind the 7 Clinics with Buck Brannaman DVD series.
The process of recording her newest project was a bit different than all of her previous records. “We spent a lot of time on Zoom during the pandemic working on this album with some of my very favorite people on the planet who just happen to live on the OTHER SIDE of the world!” Legendary, multi-award-winning Australian producer Rod McCormack had a huge hand in bringing this project to fruition. McCormack and Thompson’s husband and musical partner Sam Gay co~produced the project.
Thompson credits her BIG beloved babies, her horses, Jane & Beau for helping her get back UP.
She’s a passionate “horse Mama” and this project is infused with that love. “The song Get Back Up is a story of resilience in the face of unexpected setbacks, Templeton says, You get bucked off, you get back up, you get back on and RIDE. That’s been an ongoing theme for me. Resilience is really the undercurrent of this collection of songs. We made our Get Back Up music video to show how our beloved horses lift me UP, heal me, teach me & encourage me EVERY moment of EVERY day!!”
