Kings of Leon are an American rock band who formed in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1999. The band is composed of the Followill brothers, Caleb, Nathan and Jared, with their cousin Matthew Followill.
The band's early music was a blend of Southern rock and blues, but it has evolved throughout the years to include a variety of genres and a more alternative, arena rock sound.
Kings of Leon achieved initial success in the UK with nine top 40 singles, two BRIT Awards in 2008, and all three of the band's albums at the time peaked in the top five of the UK album chart. Their third album, Because of the Times, reached the number one spot.
After the release of Only by the Night in September 2008 the band achieved chart success in the United States. The album was their first Platinum-selling album in the US, and was also the best-selling album of the year in Australia. Kings of Leon have gone on to release several more successful albums and they have had 12 Grammy Award nominations, including 4 wins.
