It’s been a whirl-wind of a year for contemporary christian duo Joel and Luke Smallbone, better known as For KING & COUNTRY. As if having their sophomore album ‘RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG’ debut in the Top 15 on the Billboard 200 chart, and selling out over 40 shows around the country this year wasn’t enough, the brothers have scored themselves their first two Grammy Nominations for Best Contemporary Christian Album and for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for a collaboration they did with Lecrae called ‘Messengers’.
The Australia natives moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991. After a childhood filled with music, being the little brothers of a christian recording artist, and the sons of a music promoter, the brothers signed their record deal with Warner Music Group in 2009. The September 2014 release of their newest album has been their most successful venture yet!
Congrats guys! We’re rooting for you!
