Multi-national country band King Calaway have teamed up with the UK’s The Shires for a sensational cover of Miley Cyrus’ global hit ‘The Climb’. The song has been shared as part of King Calaway’s ‘Nashville House Band Series,’ in which the group are teaming up with standout musical acts across the world to release exciting collaboration video performances recorded and filmed independently of one another as they continue to isolate due to Covid-19.
Each week the group and a collaborator select topical or lighthearted songs in hopes of bringing inspiration and unity across the world. With no consistent musical theme, the series covers a variety of genres and decades appealing to all ages and almost any musical preference.
In the past few weeks, King Calaway have quickly grown a reputation as Nashville’s ‘House Band’ despite the fact that they are in lockdown separately in different countries (Gibraltar, Scotland, United States) and across multiple states.
Speaking on the collaboration with The Shires, Simon Dumas of King Calaway said, “It’s so awesome getting to do a virtual collaboration with The Shires. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a few years now and being able to throw in our harmonies on top of their incredible voices is really cool. I also think they do wonders bridging the gap and bringing Country Music across the pond.”
Whilst The Shires’ Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes added: “We were so excited when the boys asked us to do a virtual collaboration as we love their voices and their fresh new sound. “’The Climb’ is also genuinely one of our all-time favourite songs, so it really felt like the stars had aligned when they suggested it. We’re so proud of how this has turned out and think the message of this song is so right for this challenging time we’re all in.”
