For King and Country


For King & Country is a band formed by two brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone. These brothers were born in Sydney, Australia and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1991. Their father was a music promoter, and they enjoyed the feeling of being at a concert with their dad. They felt this experience led to their making music. During high school, Joel and Luke both did background vocals and more supporting roles for their sister, Rebecca's St. James who was a Christian recording artist and speaker. In 2009 they signed with Warner Music Group with Ben Glover as their producer when they changed their name to For King & Country.
“For King & Country is a reflection of standing and fighting for something greater than yourself, a mission statement that directed the duo from the first words penned for this project until the last note was recorded. ‘Our goal was the continus that theme of writing honestly and authentically about like, Joel says’” -forkingandcountry.com/bio
Their latest song is called “Priceless” with a huge and powerful meaning. “Part of the DNA of for King & Country is this idea of respect and honor in relationships and women being priceless. What we’ve both found in our beliefs as men is that people are made equal. No one is a commodity and everyone deserves to be loved and loved well.” -Joel Smallbone forkingandcountry.com/bio. Priceless is off of the album called Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong. with another powerful meaning. Joel says “Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong. is a statement of reclaiming our birthright as humans, to live a life that is for others, and in that find what it truly means to run wild, live free, and love strong.” -forkingandcountry.com/bio ~ Keeley Hester
