"One million people have downloaded ‘God Only Knows,’ which is an astonishing fact to us,” says Luke Smallbone of For King & Country. “We are grateful and are humbled to know that this song means so much to other people."
Recently, the duo arrived at the studio to record some new tracks for an upcoming Christmas album and were surprised to discover fans waiting for them on Zoom to present the news of their song's platinum certification. Fans held up custom-made signs in front of their cameras to spell out the message "CONGRATS ON PLATINUM." Fans also had the chance to talk to the duo. In 2019, Dolly Parton performed with For King & Country the song "God Only Knows," live at the 2019 CMA Awards.
The pair recently premiered their brand-new song “Together” last month which features Tori Kelly and Kirk Franklin. The song has charted at No. 5 recently on the iTunes overall Top Songs Chart and has already amassed over half a million on-demand streams in its first three days. Joel and Luke also premiered, "Together" on ABC's Good Morning America.
