What For King & Country Had to Say About Christmas
“The miracle of Christmas captivated us long ago and has been laced into the DNA of the band,” brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone said. “We felt it was the imperfectly perfect time for us to do our small part in telling the story of the redemption that Christmas offers to all of us. So, bake those chocolate chip cookies, make a little hot chocolate, strike up that cozy fire, and let us take you on a 44 minute and 49 second musical Christmas journey to celebrate the greatest story the world has ever known!”
The album concept came during the band’s beginnings. Inspiration hit while the brothers were at Christmas Tour rehearsals. Executive produced by GRAMMY® winning musician and producer Aqualung (Matt Hales) and orchestrally arranged by Davide Rossi of Coldplay fame, A Drummer Boy Christmas includes 13 tracks and features two original Christmas songs entitled “Heavenly Hosts” and an emotionally moving ballad from Joseph’s perspective “A Carol of Joseph.” A Drummer Boy Christmas was produced by Tedd T. and for KING & COUNTRY and co-produced by Benjamin Backus.
Their most recent hit, “Together,” featuring Tori Kelly and Kirk Franklin has been a multi-week No. 1 single. The song has reached the Top 25 on the mainstream Hot AC chart.
For King & Country celebrates the outstanding honor of One Billion total on-demand streams. Since 2012, For King & Country has racked up seven No. 1 hits. They’ve also won four GRAMMY® wins, a platinum single, high-energy nationally televised performances, and SOLD-OUT shows all over the world.
