Casting Crowns, which remains focused on discipleship through music, has sold nearly 4.5 million albums; won a Grammy Award, an American Music Award, and 23 Dove Awards; and has produced eight chart-topping radio singles.

Lead singer and songwriter Mark Hall has spent 18 years in youth ministry, and the band’s message remains rooted in the student services he has led on a weekly basis since 2001 at Eagle’s Landing Baptist Church near Atlanta. The songs start as messages for his 400 teenagers and their families and feature honest, hard-hitting lyrics. This tour supports their most recent release, “Until the Whole World Hears,” which was released in November 2009 and has already gone gold.
