Keith and Kristyn Getty are renowned modern hymn writers from Northern Ireland. One of Keith’s most popular compositions, “In Christ Alone,” (co-written with Stuart Townend) is the #1 most-sung hymn in the UK since 2006 (CCLI) and among the top 20 most-sung hymns in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Songs from the Getty catalog are sung by an estimated 100 million people annually in churches around the world. The duo has released multiple albums and performed at notable venues as diverse as London’s Royal Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall, and the Grand Ole Opry. The Gettys met in Belfast, Northern Ireland when they began songwriting together. They were married in 2004, and two years later, they recorded their first project as a couple in the United Kingdom and Nashville, TN. In 2006, they made the journey overseas to America and lived in Ohio for three years as they began their professional career. They moved to Nashville in 2010.
