An increasing number of people are turning to churches all around the US and one of the biggest reason for that is the evolution of Christian music. The genre has evolved to a point where it has enough power to lure people back to the church. One of the biggest names leading that charge are Casting Crowns.
They made their debut not too long ago and have now become one of the most famous Christian music bands in the US. They are now on tour and will spend the rest of 2017 performing all around the United States. Book your Casting Crowns tickets and watch them perform live, up close and personal.
Casting Crowns trace their roots back to the year 1999. That was when it was formed as a student worship band. Mark Hall, the youth pastor, added more people to the line-up and they all moved to Stockbridge from Dayton Beach, where they had been formed.
The band’s initial records were released independently. The main idea at the time was to reach as many local youngsters as possible. Casting Crowns then went on to win the GMA regional songwriter competition in two categories, “Best Artist” and “Best Song.”
By good fortune, one of their albums reached Mark Miller who was Sawyer Brown’s lead singer. He was impressed by what he heard and immediately signed the band to his Beach Street Records.
The Stars Begin To Shine
Casting Crowns hit the studio without wasting any time and came out with their self-titled album in 2003. It became a massive hit, peaking at the fifty ninth spot on the US Billboard 200. It also went to the top spot on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart. “Casting Crowns” went two times platinum in the US and joined a selected group of only eight Christians albums in history to achieve the feat.
As for the critics, AllMusic gave it three stars out of five while the Christian Broadcasting Network gave it four stars out of five. Casting Crowns were on their way to changing Christian Music forever.
A Legacy of Icons
Casting Crowns have come out with ten albums since releasing “Casting Crowns.” They have sold ten million copies and are second on the list of Christian music bands to have their first two records go platinum in the fastest time. Casting Crowns have also won multiple prestigious awards, including four American Music Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, fifteen Dove Awards and one Grammy Award.
