for KING and COUNTRY Drops New Version Of “For God is with Us” With Hillary Scott
Multi-GRAMMY® winning duo and Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist FOR KING + COUNTRY is pleased to announce a brand new recording of their #1 hit single, “For God Is With Us,” featuring multi-GRAMMY® award-winning vocalist Hillary Scott of the multi-Platinum band Lady A. Listen to the song, available now, HERE.
The new single release of “For God Is With Us,” whose original version has been #1 on the Mediabase AC chart for five consecutive weeks and #1 for three straight weeks on Billboard’s “Audience” chart, brings the CCM, Country and mainstream worlds together for the powerful rendition. The song, written by the Smallbones, Jordan Reynolds, and Josh Kerr, was initially released on FOR KING + COUNTRY’s current album, What Are We Waiting For?, which recently debuted on the Billboard 200 at #7 and on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart at #2, marking the duo’s second Top 10 album of their career.
Says the Smallbones of their collaboration with Scott, “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 :).”
Adds Scott, “I’m truly humbled that FOR KING + COUNTRY asked to add my vocal on such a powerful song,” added Scott. “Personally, it was a treat for me to collaborate with them and I know 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, with 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,” awe-inspiring “For God Is With Us,” and unifying No. 1 hit, “TOGETHER.” FOR KING + COUNTRY’s “What Are We Waiting For? – The Tour” took the duo this year to arenas across the United States, in support of What Are We Waiting For? against the backdrop of an all-new stage design. They continue to tour on the festival circuit this summer through September 3 (check www.forkingandcountry.com for tour dates).
