Kings Of Leon: Storytellers In May
"'VH1 Storytellers' is one of my favorite shows. I always used to watch all these people talk about their inspirations… this is an honor for me," said Kings of Leon lead singer Caleb Followill during the taping outside of Nashville, TN on April 5th. Caleb along with brothers Nathan, Jared and cousin Matthew Followill performed 12 songs in front of an intimate 150-member audience.
The hour-long "VH1 Storytellers" episode will feature the band performing a selection of hits including "Sex on Fire," "Radioactive" and "Use Somebody" which earned the band three Grammy awards in 2010 including "Record of the Year." While introducing "Radioactive" lead singer Followill told the audience, "You know there's always gonna be an element of our background in the songs and our background was the church - or is the church. We're finally at the age when we're comfortable in our own skin and we're not scared to admit that and not scared to put it out there… I think the more honest that we've been throughout the years, we get the better result that way."
Several online-exclusive performances from the show will be available at Storytellers.VH1.com leading up to and following the on-air premiere. The full show will be available at Storytellers.VH1.com following the on-air premiere on Friday, May 13th.
