For KING & COUNTRY received their first two Grammy Awards nominations on Friday —RUN WILD. LIVE FREE. LOVE STRONG. is up for Best Contemporary Christian Album and “Messengers” by Lecrae, feat. for KING & COUNTRY is up for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song. The brother duo, who received a Dove Award for New Artist of the Year just one year ago, have scored significant victories throughout the year—Top 15 Billboard 200 album debut, #1 multi-format single and their most successful tour, which sold-out nearly 40 shows around the country. The brothers responded to the nominations with this statement: “We remember when our debut album was about to release, someone asked us what our hopes and dreams were. We first wanted people to be impacted by the hope of music but also had the distant dream of being nominated for one of music’s most prestigious honors. Today, three years onward, to be nominated for two GRAMMYs by a group of people we call friends is truly a gift.”
“These nominations are a huge statement for our artists and an exciting recognition of their work,” says Word Entertainment President & CEO Rod Riley. “I am extremely proud of our artists and our team.”
The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Sunday, February 8, 2015. View the complete list of nominees HERE.
