Joel and Luke from "For King And Country" grew up surrounded by music. Their father was a music promoter, and they even "apprenticed" musically by singing backup vocals for their sister Rebecca St. James while they were in high school.

Joel and Luke were born in Sydney, Australia, and later moved to Nashville to pursue their music careers. After they both graduated from high school, they formed their own band with the name, "Joel & Luke". They later changed their name to "Austoville", and in 2009, they signed with Warner Music Group and changed their name to "For King & Country" after a British Battlecry.

Joel said, ""We wanted a band name that carried more meaning. We were in the studio recording our debut record that Joel had the idea of All The King's Men, like the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme. Our producer overheard our conversation and swung around in his chair and said, 'What about For King & Country?' And we all felt a sense of providence in that moment. "For King and Country" was the battle cry of English soldiers willing to lay down their lives for their king and their country. And now it has become our mission, to lay down our lives for our King and our country.
