Shawna Thompson, half of country duo Thompson Square, has lost her father to cancer. The duo has canceled appearances for the coming days, with David Nail temporarily filling in their spot on Lady Antebellum’s “Own The Night World Tour.”
A statement from Thompson Square’s management team posted on the duo’s Facebook page reads:
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that Shawna Thompson’s father George Michael “Mickey” Mcllwain passed away yesterday evening in Alabama after a valiant battle with cancer. Shawna and her family were by his side when he passed. We ask that you please keep both Shawna and Keifer as well as Shawna’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with Shawna and her family during this difficult time.
