Casting Crowns has an established foothold on the contemporary Christian music (CCM) scene, boasting album sales of more than four million, along with a Grammy Award and 23 Dove Awards, among other accolades. The inspirational music group keeps its lyrical focus on Christianity, while concerts fall in the soft rock range, occasionally tinged with pop influences.
The Georgia-based band really took off after the 2003 eponymous effort, which reached double-platinum status and produced three Top 10 singles. Most recently, the Christian outfit left the studio with its fifth effort, “Come to the Well,” which includes a track co-written by fellow CCM big shot Steven Curtis Chapman. That collection earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and led to a successful support tour. When they’re not performing before ticket holders across the nation, several of the seven Casting Crowns members enjoy full-time careers as youth pastors at their McDonough, Georgia, Baptist church.
