Kings of Leon 'worried about Susan Boyle'

Thursday, 21st Oct 2010

Kings of Leon have admitted that they have an unlikely threat in the charts in the shape of Susan Boyle.

The American performers told the Sun that they are concerned the Scottish singer, who rocketed to fame after her performances on Britain's Got Talent, will sell more CDs than they do.

Lead singer Caleb Followill told the newspaper: "I am worried about Susan Boyle. If she sells more records than us. She is a force of nature that woman."

He added that he is also concerned about how their new album Come Around Sundown will sell in the UK, although he added that chart positions are not something that normally stresses him until just prior to a record's release.

Fans of the band will have a couple of months to become familiar with the tracks on their new album - which was released on October 18th 2010 - before they hit the road on their UK tour in December.
