2013 is turning out to be a pivotal year for new trio The Henningsens. The family band has charted their first Top 20 hit with their debut single, “American Beautiful,” and will join Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour, which kicks off May 9. Plus, band member Clara Henningsen is getting married! Engaged to Jacob Calaway since last summer, the pair chose a springtime wedding before the band hits the road.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have found the perfect man for me, and to have him here to share in all the wonderful things that are happening for us,” Clara said. “Life’s gonna be crazy, but it’s gonna be really, really fun. I’m truly blessed.”
“As the father of 10 children, you kind of learn to watch your kids get married, but it never becomes any less special,” Brian Henningsen said of his daughter and fellow bandmate.
Co-written by The Henningsens and Brett Beavers, the trio’s debut single, “American Beautiful,” is now at No. 18 and No. 20, respectively, on the Country Aircheck and Billboard country airplay charts. The song is featured on their debut album, American Beautiful, set for a July 2 release.
