 "Templeton Thompson, love the name. It sounds like the moniker of a star. And, happily, her zesty vocal sounds star-like too..."  -Robert K. Oermann, Music Row Magazine

“A vulnerable, yet believable voice this pure needs to be heard on the radio."  - Clay Walker

"With a name that rolls beautifully off the tongue and a breath-taking power-laced voice that oozes country richness, this much sought after Nashville demo vocalist and horse enthusiast has teamed up with award-winning director Cindy Meehl to make the number one video for this great summer number, and what an enchanting southern gem it is too."
-Alan Cackett ~ Maverick Magazine UK
