From Youth Group Band to Christian Music Powerhouse
Casting Crowns was formed in 1999 by Mark Hall, the band's lead vocalist and primary songwriter. Hall was a youth pastor at First Baptist Church in Daytona Beach, Florida. The band originally served as the youth group's worship band. After releasing two independent albums, Mark Miller, lead singer of Sawyer Brown, loved their work and signed them to his new label, Beach Street Records. The resulting new album, Casting Crowns, became one of the fastest-selling debut albums in Christian music. With the release of their latest album, Only Jesus, the band aims to make Jesus, not the band or their success, the primary focus of their music. Casting Crown members are still involved in ministry at their churches, typically touring Thursday through Saturday to be able to attend Sunday and Wednesday services with their families.
