Kings of Leon
Brothers Caleb, Nathan and Jared Followill launched Kings of Leon in 1999 after spending their childhoods on the road with their father (and the band’s namesake), a traveling preacher. Upon signing a deal with RCA, they recruited their cousin Matthew Followill and started work on their breakthrough EP. Twelve years and five albums later, they are one of America’s biggest bands. —Jeff Royer
