As with all their albums 'Good Years' was recorded in the home of Country Music, Nashville. It is a poignant project for Crissie and Ben now having made huge waves both on home soil and across the pond as the first UK artists to win 'Best International Act' at the prestigious CMAs.

Speaking on the release of their latest single and the new album Crissie and Ben said; "We are so excited to be releasing 'Good Years', our 4th album recorded in Nashville and also announce our next UK tour! Honesty and storytelling has always been such an important part of our songwriting. We've poured some of the incredible experiences and life we've lived into these songs. We can't wait to hit the road next year and play these live across the country. The songs mean so much to us personally, but there really is nothing like looking out at our fans in the crowd and seeing how much of an impact they can have in someone else's life. It's truly a very special thing".
