With both the magic of Christmas and the spirit of collaboration becoming beautiful pieces of for KING & COUNTRYâ€™s journey, we extended invitations to country musicâ€™s new sweetheart Gabby Barrett and NEEDTOBREATHEâ€™s Bear Rinehart to join us on A Drummer Boy Christmas. The results produced a swagger and flare that never could have been if it was just for KING & COUNTRY.â€
