Last week The War And Treaty –Tanya Trotter and Michael Trotter Jr, a US Army Veteran – treated an audience of millions to a powerful version of “Blank Page” from Lover’s Game at the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, co-hosted by Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks, where they were nominated for Duo Of The Year.

Earlier this year, the acclaimed duo were featured in The Guardian newspaper, read here.

Since forming in 2014, The War And Treaty have amassed a following as eclectic as their sound itself, a bluesy but joyful fusion of Southern soul, gospel, country, and rock’n’roll. With more than 100 shows last year, the duo have dominated stages in North America, the UK, Europe, Australia and right across the globe, headlining their own shows as well as opening for a diverse group of living legends such as Al Green, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, John Legend, Lauren Daigle and Van Morrison among them.

As they have created vastly diverse tour opportunities across multiple genres, The War And Treaty will join Chris Stapleton on the All-American Road Show Tour this summer.

A ten-song collection produced by Dave Cobb, Lover’s Game proves why the “Nashville couple is as good as it gets” (Music Row) as they offer “stunning vocals and thought-provoking lyrics” (Nashville Lifestyles) that share a unique perspective on shifting cultural and musical tides while pulling back the layers of a maturing relationship.

Earning respect, they’ve gone on to appear as top-flight collaborators, and have been recognized by the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Grand Ole Opry and the Americana Music Association as ‘2022 Duo/Group of the Year.’
