Casting Crowns

Even as Casting Crowns has become Christian music's most successful act, Mark Hall and his fellow band members have continued working at their home churches.

After all the accolades, all the awards, all the time on the road and in the studio, why does Casting Crowns continue to do what they do? The answer is simple: It’s their calling – God’s calling on the lives of these seven committed and talented musicians. To pour their lives into the students and families God has placed in their paths. To set discipleship to music. To challenge and strengthen the body of Christ.

It’s what brought them together in the first place and what keeps them going.

Accolades: Since its launch in 2003 the band has garnered 14 GMA Dove Awards, three GRAMMY Awards and an American Music Award. In addition, the band has seen three RIAA Platinum Albums, two RIAA Platinum DVDs, two RIAA Gold Albums and two Gold DVDs. Casting Crowns has sold more than 8.2 million albums to date and has been named Billboard magazine's top-selling Christian act for the past four years.

Off Days: Ever wonder what artists do when they aren't busy with their own band?  Well yesterday Mark Hall spoke at my old church in New Orleans - encouraging a group of young pastors.  Then he went to see NEEDTOBREATHE in concert at the House of Blues!
