“With all that humanity has faced in 2020 it seems music, and particularly music with hope and God laced through it, is more needed and timely than ever. Luke and I find it humbling to be part of bringing these thoughts and ideas to the world through our songs, and send our gratitude to the Gospel Music Association for recognizing ours, and some many of our peers, efforts to encourage, build up and unite.” – for KING & COUNTRY on their nominations
