Casting Crowns has sold more than 11 million albums, and currently holds the position as Billboard’s top-selling act in Christian music since 2007. The band has received multiple awards including four American Music Awards, a Grammy awards for its 2005 album “Lifesong,” 18 GMA Dove Awards and two Billboard Music Awards.

Casting Crowns’ seven band members all remain active in student ministry in the Atlanta area and tour according to their local church commitments. Lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall maintains his role as the student pastor at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta.
