For KING + COUNTRY Features Lady A’s Hillary Scott In New Single
FOR KING + COUNTRY announces a brand new recording of their number 1 hit single, ‘For God Is With Us’.
This new recording features multi-GRAMMY® award-winning vocalist Hillary Scott of the multi-Platinum band Lady A.
The original version has been number 1 on the Mediabase AC chart for five consecutive weeks.
Also, its been number 1 for three consecutive weeks on Billboard’s ‘Audience’ chart.
The song which was written by the Smallbones, Jordan Reynolds and Josh Kerr, was originally released on FOR KING + COUNTRY’s current album, WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?.
This album recently debuted on the Billboard 200 at number 7. On Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart, it was number 2, marking the duo’s second Top 10 album of their career.
Both living in Nashville, naturally, we’ve rubbed shoulders over the years and have sensed a kindred spirit;
but to go into the studio together and to have her light-filled soul and magnificent voice bring the song to a whole new level was everything you’d hope a collaboration could be — not to mention the fact that the experience fast tracked us all to becoming dear friends and form a supergroup ‘For King + Lady’, if only for one song 🙂
I’m truly humbled that FOR KING + COUNTRY asked to add my vocal on such a powerful song
Personally, it was a treat for me to collaborate with them and I now I’m excited to share it.
WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?, FOR KING + COUNTRY’s fourth studio album, features the talents of brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone.
It has 13 new original tracks that confront relevant issues and confirm the duo’s commitment to community, unity and family.
Set against a sonic backdrop painted by the Platinum-selling group’s lush, vivid pop, the collection features cameos from Dante Bowe, Kirk Franklin and Tori Kelly, and includes barrier-breaking single ‘RELATE’.
It also has an inspiring song ‘For God Is With Us,’ and their amazing No. 1 hit, ‘TOGETHER.’
