'Get Back Up' is out now!
Nashville singer-songwriter, Templeton Thompson today has released her new single, Get Back Up, to Australian radio – and Countrytown has your first look at the music video in this exclusive premiere.
The song, which comes from the fourteen-track album of the same name, is a story of resilience in the face of unexpected setbacks.
Thompson says, “Get back up, get back on and ride. That’s been an ongoing theme for me. Resilience is really the undercurrent of this collection of songs.”
Australian producer Rod McCormack had a huge hand in bringing this project to fruition, and McCormack and Thompson’s husband and musical partner Sam Gay produced the project.
The video was shot near Thompson’s Middle Tennessee home at Frog Pond Hall, a ca. 1905 one-room wood clapboard building that once served as a church. With support from HandsOn Gloves, Thompson co-produced the video with Gay, who also shot and edited the video. The video also features Thompson’s beloved horses, Jane and Beau.
The process of recording her newest project was a bit different than all of her previous records.

Thompson says, “We spent a lot of time on Zoom working on this album with some of my very favourite people on the planet who just happen to live on the other side of the world!”
She adds, “I’m really proud of this project and incredibly grateful to all the creative souls who are part of it... the songwriters, the singers, the musicians, the producers, the engineers, and the true believers, I owe them all the moon and stars!”
The album also includes a duet with Michael Martin Murphey on the song Ride A Wide Circle.
She says, “It’s still kinda surreal to me that the iconic voice of Wildfire is singing with me on this record when I’ve been singing along with him on the radio for as long as I can remember!”
Her songs have also been recorded by multi-platinum artists like Reba McEntire, Jo Dee Messina, Little Texas, Sherrié Austin and more. In addition, her song, Settle Down Cinderella is featured in the 20th Century Fox Motion Picture, Dr. Doolittle 3 and Happy Yee-halidays is featured in the Lifetime Christmas movie Every Other Holiday.
Thompson has performed on stage for audiences the US, Europe, and Japan. Her love for horses along with her passion for music has also made Templeton a favourite at major horse expos as well as National and International horse events. Templeton's horse, "Jane" also achieved celebrity status when Breyer – maker of collectable model horses – created a model of "Jane" which was packaged with Templeton's music and sold nationwide.
