Nashville, Tenn. - In a heartfelt surprise encounter last week, four-time GRAMMY® award winner and Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist for KING & COUNTRY discovered that the multi-week No. 1 hit "God Only Knows" has been certified platinum. The GRAMMY® award winning track has racked up over 143 million on-demand streams to date, and the official music video has accumulated over 40 million views.

"One million people have downloaded 'God Only Knows,' which is an astonishing fact to us," Luke Smallbone says. "We are grateful and are humbled to know that this song means so much to other people."

 



Upon arriving at the studio to record tracks for an upcoming Christmas album, Joel & Luke Smallbone of for KING & COUNTRY were astonished to find fans waiting for them via Zoom to present the news of the duo's platinum certification. After holding up custom-made signs to the camera to spell out the message "CONGRATS ON PLATINUM," the fans were able to chat with the Smallbones and express how much "God Only Knows" has meant for them since the song's premiere. Last year, Dolly Parton joined for KING & COUNTRY to collaborate on a GRAMMY® winning rendition of "God Only Knows," with the two performing at the 2019 CMA Awards.

for KING & COUNTRY premiered the brand-new song "TOGETHER" last month to high praise, as the song charted at No. 5 on the iTunes overall Top Songs Chart and has amassed over half a million on-demand streams in its first three days. "TOGETHER" was featured on Spotify's New Music Friday playlist, and appeared on Apple Music's New Music Daily and Today's Top Pop Hits playlists.
