Let’s be pioneers
Pioneers by for KING & COUNTRY features their wives in hope to inspire other married couples to “carry on.” For the video below, brothers Joel, Luke, and their wives Moriah and Courtney are seen walking in the Icelandic countryside while they sing about some of the challenges faced in marriage.
“There’s a song that we sang on our honeymoon / I remember all the words but forgot the tune / Why are we out of tune? / Let’s forgive and let’s forgive again / I’m reaching out to my sweetest friend / Can we start again?” some of the lyrics read.
The chorus of the tune is a plea to be “pioneers” in marriage, possibly because of the staggering statistic that 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. However, for KING & COUNTRY hope to change the narrative.
