For King & Country received the Artist of the Year award from Australia’s national Christian music airplay chart, The Rock Across Australia (TRAA). This honor comes on the heels of the group’s winning New Artist of the Year at the 44th Annual GMA Dove Awards last October.
For King & Country generated the highest airplay by a Christian act, spending 51 weeks in 2013 on the overall chart and multiple weeks in the Top 10 with singles “Middle of Your Heart” and “Crave” from their critically acclaimed debut album, Crave (Fervent Records/Word Distribution).
The Australian-born duo will be featured on Casting Crowns’ Thrive Tour starting Feb. 20 for 33 dates through May 3.
