Oct 16 2018
GRAMMY ® WINNERS CELEBRATE WITH TWO SOLD-OUT SHOWS AT THE RYMAN
(Nashville, TN) – Two-time GRAMMY ® award-winning group for KING & COUNTRY reached exciting new benchmarks last week with the release of their third studio album Burn the Ships. The time and hard work spent have paid off in spades, as the record debuted at No. 7 on the all-genre Billboard 200 Albums chart, and No. 1 on the Top Christian Albums chart. These milestones propelled the band to their biggest ever sales week and their first top 10 album. Watch the Smallbone brothers discuss how they tapped into their own feelings of forgiveness, desperation, and hope to create their most heartfelt & personal record in an exclusive video HERE.
Joel and Luke Smallbone state: “We spent a year and a half pouring countless hours of heart, sweat, and sometimes blood and tears into this record, but the only way it all seems worth it is if people hear the songs and make them their own.. With that in mind, I’d say the greatest encouragement and accomplishment for us of Burn the Ships release week is that every number is in fact a person. Therefore, in just seven days, this album went from solely belonging to us, to now belonging 60+ thousand people around the world. We’re so grateful to share our stories and it is our hope that this music gives people hope.”
for KING & COUNTRY has had an astounding past few months as the duo has been featured by major publications like People and USA Today, and their lead single “joy.” became a multi-hit, multi-chart, international No. 1 hit with over 21 million streams. The Smallbones’ upward trajectory has followed them home to Nashville, TN, as the band celebrated their most successful release to date with a pair of SOLD-OUT shows at the historic Ryman Auditorium. They now have five sold-out shows under their belt, including a rousing performance in Dallas, TX at The Bomb Factory, and are gearing up for the last leg of their Burn the Ships | Album Release tour.
