for KING & COUNTRY


Growing up in a musical family, for KING & COUNTRY's Joel and Luke Smallbone have been singing and performing most of their lives.The brothers moved to America in the early 90’s when their father took a job in Nashville, Tennessee. 

After traveling the world, and performing in live shows, Joel and Luke decided to focus on making music together, drawing from their lives:“Music has the peculiar ability to connect with the soul, and we want to use it to encourage... Life is a journey; full of highs and lows; triumphs and sorrows; these are the subjects we write about: Real human experiences.” 

Their single "Busted Heart (Hold On To Me)," off the album Crave, is a song about being absolutely broken, yet realizing that the Lord will always be there to hold on to you.“There comes those defining moments in each of our lives where we so severely need someone to hold on to us,” says Joel. “It seems we are all, in different ways, shapes and forms, busted to some degree. This song is an honest confessional of: ‘I can’t do this thing called life on my own. I need something, or more specifically, someone greater than myself to hold on to me.”

The band followed up "Busted Heart (Hold On To Me)" with "The Proof Of Your Love". Anchored on 1 Corinthians 13:1, the lyrics emphasize the concept that without love underlying our actions, everything we do is useless. “We want to be known for writing music that is authentic, real and from the heart,” Joel says. “Music has been a very therapeutic thing for us. There’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears that went into this record and what spurred us on is this whole idea that we can make a difference. That music, our music, can have the power to impact someone’s life for the better.”

While writing the song "Fix My Eyes" (Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong), Joel and Luke were on tour and facing a litany of obstacles. Luke was diagnosed with a life-threatening digestive disorder and Joel was experiencing relationship issues. In the midst of the trials, the brothers asked themselves, "Who are we, and what are we trying to say?" 

Out of these questions came the chorus, ending with "Stand tall but above it all, fix my eyes on You."
