Joel and Luke from For King & Country were born in Australia but have lived in the United States most of their lives. So, how much have they learned about American history? See what happened when I asked them a few questions from the U.S. Citizenship Test.
UPDATE: Joel is now officially an American citizen and the “Monday Night Album Spotlight” is just a memory.
A quote from Lady Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..” We moved to the US when I was a boy.. 16 suitcases, no return flights, five siblings with another on the way – clinging to the deep hope of a bright future.. And now, many years later as an official citizen, and with many dreams realized – I’m more aware of the greatest sacrifice so many men and women have made for our freedom. Giving a cheer and saying a prayer for all the veterans and their families on this profound day. #veteransday 🇺🇸 (📷: Captured on May 18, 2017, the day I was sworn in as a United States citizen)
Listen to the “More Than The Music Podcast” to hear about Joel’s random injuries, how they lost everything when they moved from Australia, how Luke overcame a disease that almost forced him to leave the band, and how the songs from their album, “Run Wild, Live Free, Love Strong: Deluxe Anniversary Edition,” remind them to never give up.
