Four-time GRAMMY-winning duo for KING & COUNTRY has joined forces with rising country singers Hannah Ellis and Jackson Michelson for a country rendition of their multi-week No.1, “Together.” 

Dubbed “Together (The Country Collaboration),” the new version of the song features the vocalists alongside violins, steel guitars, and banjos.

“In a time where this virus is not isolated to one people group or country or social class – it has become the great equalizer,” shares for KING & COUNTRY’s Joel and Luke Smallbone. “It is helping us all reconsider this beautiful concept that we all bleed the same blood. And if we are able to unite, and support — be a neighbor to someone, serve someone, reach out to someone – how might those acts of kindness change the scope of our futures, together?”

The duo first debuted “Together” during the TOGETHER: A Night of Hope streaming event in March of 2020. Since then, the unifying song has resonated with fans around the globe. The track spent multiple weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase Christian radio charts, reached No. 23 on the Hot AC chart and No. 13 on the AC chart.

“Together (The Country Collaboration)” is for KING & COUNTRY’s first country collab since joining Dolly Parton on the chart-topping, GRAMMY-winning song, “God Only Knows.”
