The band was also announced this morning as a performer at ACM Songs, Stories & Stars, taking place as part of the 7th Annual ACM Party for a Cause on Friday, April 5 at the Marquee Ballroom, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino leading up to the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards.
The news continues to solidify the six-piece band’s status as an act on the rise, building on the success of their debut single “World For Two” from their self-titled EP released in January, via BMG/BBR Music Group. “World For Two” was the most added song at country radio in its first week and continues to grow rapidly across streaming platforms. Additionally, King Calaway made their Grand Ole Opry debut on March 1 and was introduced by esteemed country artist Brad Paisley. The band has been named in 2019 by Billboard and a “2019 Artists To Watch” by Amazon music.
