For KING & COUNTRY, Lecrae and Other Artists Hit Network Television

For KING & COUNTRY, the Christian rock/pop duo, has seen tremendous success in the last year, having recently been nominated for two Grammy awards. But it appears their singing career is on the cusp of exploding—especially with the exposure they’ll see on the Today Show on February 4 at 9:00 a.m. CT, just days before the 57th annual awards show.

“Thank you for helping us continue to put great themes of hope on the airwaves, and now even on TV screens!” bandleaders Joel and Luke Smallbone said in a statement.

This is the band’s first appearance on the talk show, although this isn’t the first time their songs have been featured on network television. Their lyrics have been featured on The Emmy’s, the Today Show, Sunday Night Football, 7Up commercials, U.S. Open Finals, and more.

The band will be performing live on the morning show, and it’s been speculated by media outlets that the band will perform “Fix My Eyes” although the band has yet to confirm details.

Over the next three months, for KING & COUNTRY will be appearing in 47 cities and before more than 600,000 fans as part of the Winter Jam Spectacular Tour.

For KING & COUNTRY isn’t alone in their television success. Fellow singer-songwriter and Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae was featured on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon back in September. The hip-hop artist performed live with Fallon’s house band during commercial breaks.

After several requests, Fallon brought Lecrae back to the late-night show earlier this month, this time giving the artist the spotlight. Lecrae performed “Made In America,” which was interspersed with quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. Lecrae ended the performance by saying “Go see Selma.”(See our review of the movie here.)

Ellie Holcomb also appeared on television late last year. The 2014 Dove Artist of the Year award winner performed on the Fox News Christmas Specal, Todd’s All-American Christmas. Her debut album As Sure as the Sun released February 2014 to tremendous acclaim.

Who have you seen share the spotlight with mainstream television shows recently? Let us know in the comments.
