Nashville, Tenn. (October 20, 2014) -Casting Crowns received its sixth career American Music Awards nomination this week for the "Favorite Artist - Contemporary Inspirational" category, in which fans can log on to to cast their ballots. The group's current release, THRIVE, hit #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Albums Chart and #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Casting Crowns is currently on the fall leg of its highly successful Thrive Tour with nine sellout dates announced so far, including the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo. The Thrive Tour continues through 2015, in which the band will perform at New York's famed Carnegie Hall on January 24.

Casting Crowns is one of the most successful Contemporary Christian artists, also crossing over onto the mainstream charts, with one double Platinum album (CASTING CROWNS), three Platinum albums (THE ALTAR AND THE DOOR, LIFESONG, CASTING CROWNS) and six Gold albums (COME TO THE WELL, UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD HEARS, PEACE ON EARTH, THE ALTAR AND THE DOOR, LIFESONG and CASTING CROWNS). Having also released four Gold DVDs and four RIAA Gold certified digital singles, the band currently holds the position as Billboard's top selling act in Christian music since 2007.

The AMA, GRAMMY and Dove Award winning group, features Mark Hall, Melodee Devevo, Brian Scoggin, Megan Garrett, Juan Devevo, Chris Huffman and Josh Mix, who have been recording and touring for more than 10 years -- when they heard their first single on the radio in 2003.
