Spreading Christmas cheer and singing loud for all to hear is a little more difficult in a topsy turvy world like the one we have found ourselves in in 2020. However, there is one band who have made it their mission to combat the pandemic blues and keep spirits up no matter what – for KING & COUNTRY are here to ensure that we still have some semblance of Christmas spirit, even in 2020.
With their first ever full-length Christmas album, A Drummer Boy Christmas, these brothers remind us that it’s possible to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, even during these dark times. With a tracklisting consisting of a selection of the most popular hymns, Luke and Joel prove that they have the chops to put unique spins on well-known songs; with Heavenly Hosts, they prove they can write one hell of a tune as well.
This coming from the band who were chosen to perform alongside Dolly Parton herself (the true saviour of the year perhaps?) to sing God Only Knows with the country legend.
With friends like that, and albums like this, we’re all just on the edge of our seats waiting to see what this band can come up with next year. Roll on 2021!
