RADIO FRIEND PHIL – For King & Country’s latest project “Run Wild. Live Free. Love Strong,” was just named “Best Contemporary Christian Music Album” at the 2015 Grammy Awards. The Australian duo of Joel and Luke Smallbone have continued to modify their sound; the brothers’ confidence in each other has strengthened their ability to write songs that resonate with fans worldwide (and reach out to a new audience who may not know their music; case in point, FKC played the NBC Today show recently). For more on the band go to http://www.forkingandcountry.com/today?ref=http://www.bing.com/search?q=for+king+and+country&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IESR02  —-and check out the video for the song “Fix My Eyes.”
