Nashville, TN (September 30, 2019)
Two-time GRAMMY® Award winners for KING & COUNTRY celebrated their first weekend on tour with four outstanding performances and a little adventure. After kicking off the second leg of the Burn the Ships World Tour 2019 in Trenton, NJ; the band provided majestic and high-energy performances in Ypsilanti, MI and Chicago, IL. It was on their way out of Illinois that the Smallbones’ tour bus broke down, forcing Joel and Luke to rent a U-Haul, load up the equipment themselves, and drive the remaining 5.5 hours to their hometown performance in Nashville, TN. The brothers arrived just in time to bring their spectacular live show to the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, performing to a near sellout crowd that spent a majority of the show on its feet.
“This is quite a moment,” Joel Smallbone expressed backstage prior to the beginning of the show. “My family is here, there are so many familiar faces and loved ones. This is one of those moments where you want to take a snapshot.”
