Today, rising Nashville band KING CALAWAY announced its debut full-length album Rivers will be released on October 4 via BMG – and is now available for pre-order here. Fans who pre-order the album now will instantly receive the five tracks on their eponymous EP released in January – “No Matter What,” “Rivers,” “I Do,” “World For Two” and “Love the One You’re With” – along with a brand-new track, “Driver’s Seat.”
“We’re so excited to announce the release of a record we’ve worked so hard on this past year. Everyone who worked on this album shared a similar vision of creating an authentic, original sound while spreading a message of positivity through the lyrics and melodies,” singer and guitarist Chad Michael Jervis says of album. “With our love and passion for making music, the title track mirrors who we want to be as a group. ”I know where we belong, I know where we feel free. And it goes on and on, like rivers to the sea.” We hope our debut album inspires others the way our favorite albums have inspired us.”
The band of six is also confirmed to make its debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden on October 8 where they will perform the album’s foot-stomping anthem and title track “Rivers.”

ABOUT KING CALAWAY:
After a whirlwind year since their debut EP was released in January 2019, King Calaway is proof that there’s strength in numbers. Their eponymous EP in January 2019 features hit single “World For Two,” which became the #1 most added song at country radio in its debut week. Their first full-length album Rivers - out October 4 on BBR Music Group/Stoney Creek Records - will build on the five-song EP’s success, with seven new tracks and was executive produced by Robert Deaton and Ross Copperman. After being named one of the seven new country acts to watch out for by Billboard, the band continues to take the country music industry by storm from multiple performances at the famed Grand Ole Opry - including an incredible performance moment with the legendary Ricky Skaggs - to making their late night television performance debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and an appearance on the internationally acclaimed show Neighbours. They’ve brought their energetic live show to various stages, including a CMA Fest debut and opening slots for Rascal Flatts and Garth Brooks. Hailing from across the globe – from the small towns of the American Midwest to the small coastal country of Gibraltar; from the Atlantic Seaboard to the Central Belt of Scotland – King Calaway brings a worldly perspective. They’re country stars for a new generation, singing songs that erase the boundaries between genres and countries. King Calaway isn’t looking to blend into the crowd. They’re not even looking to fit in. They’re in the business of standing out…and King Calaway stands tall.
