Nashville, Tenn. (February 11, 2014) - Multi-platinum selling group, Casting Crowns continues to bring THRIVE to life, wrapping up a month of visits and giving back to fans across the country. Accompanying the recent release of the group's seventh studio record (THRIVE), which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, comes Mark Hall's newest book on Zondervan, "Thrive - Digging Deep, Reaching Out" available today, February 11. This is Hall's fourth book to date and discusses the critical inner challenge that we are meant to more than just survive life - we are called to thrive. Each chapter threads together this impactful message, adding Hall's signature style of weaving stories with powerful tools for application.

The release of "Thrive - Digging Deep, Reaching Out," comes off the heels of a jam-packed, whirlwind month for Casting Crowns. Beginning in the month of January, Casting Crowns launched their"Month of Giving" with opportunities for them to give back to fans in big and small ways. The roots didn't stop there as the band traveled across the country to multiple cities performing acoustic sets (including a Secret Show in Dallas, TX) and visiting friends such asThe Harvest Show, Live at Studio B, Moody Radio, Rick & Bubba and more. Also adding to the momentum of 'THRIVE,' several members of the band surprised shoppers at local retailers with a copy of the new record.

Last week, the band made a trip to New York City where they did special performances and interviews with Sirius Radio, Livestream.com, Billboard and FOX Radio. Wrapping up their NYC run, Casting Crowns made their national television debut of their song "Thrive" on the highly rated morning show, "FOX & Friends."
