Play Video


  • Thompson Square is an American Country music duo composed of husband and wife Keifer Thompson and Shawna Thompson. The fourth single from their self-titled debut album was written by Ross Copperman and Jon Nite. Copperman is an American singer-songwriter who is known by many for his song "All She Wrote," which reached the top 40 of the UK singles chart in 2007. Texan Jon Nite is a singer/songwriter with roots planted in the music of West Texas, who has had tunes cut by Blake Shelton, Chris Young and Dierks Bentley.
  • The first time that the Thompsons heard "Glass" it was a male demo. Keifer recalled to Billboard magazine: "We loved the song. I didn't feel like I could sell the song as well as Shawna could. We switched it over, and she did a version of it that blew everybody out of the water. It was absolutely the right move. I think the fans are going to love it. It's a really fragile, intimate song that showcases Shawna's vocal ability."
  • Jon Nite recorded his own version of "Glass," which was featured in the teen drama show One Tree Hill.
  • Fun Fact: When glass breaks, the cracks move faster than 3000 miles per hour.
  • We see Shawna wearing a beautiful wedding dress in the song's music video. She told The Boot how she chose it herself: "Right before we had to go down to Mobile, Alabama, to do a show, we had a meeting with our stylist," she recalled. "I left the meeting a little bit unsure about the dress that had been picked for the video. So, we're in Mobile, which is just like 50 miles from where I grew up and used to shop. My mom was with me, so we went dress shopping at a bridal shop in Mobile. The first one I tried on was perfect, so that's the one you see in the video!"
